The California Republican Party bought a hundred fake boxes, set out fifty, got caught, got given a cease-and-desist by the California Secretary of State and told him too bad for you, we have fifty more and we’re going to use them! The kicker is that their claimed rationale is false—no voter signed their name on the envelope for permission for them to deliver for the voter—and they’re committing felonies with their scheme. Which could get them barred from voting if convicted. Aren’t they glad Democrats are willing to consider restoring voting rights to nonviolent offenders?

So is this how Phil came into the strip? Great save!
In San Francisco (story at https://www.washingtonpost.com/nation/2020/10/12/california-illegal-ballot-boxes/ and in Texas, members of the GOP set up fake ballot boxes in mostly-Democratic neighborhoods to try to steal ballots. Ballot boxes must be attended and a sign saying Polling Station doesn’t make it one. Check with your state’s online voter guides before dropping yours off at any box to make sure it’s legit. As for the guys who did those fake boxes, that’s a felony, and the ironic thing is that it would make them ineligible to vote.
This is genius. Where was this idea when I needed it raising my four kids?
I have a cousin who loves posting real estate listings that are…interesting. There was one in Missouri, remodeled nicely, that came with its own jail cells at the back of the house. Which were NOT remodeled out of there and were stark bars and concrete. Hard pass.
Having lived in the Boston area and Silicon Valley, I guffawed!
A longtime friend is a virology researcher at a top university. He’s one of the many working on how to stop the covid-19 virus. One of his grad students is Asian, and she’s been harassed and verbally attacked several times by complete strangers as if the whole thing were somehow her personal fault—while she’s actually on the front lines taking on the risks to actually work with it to try to stop it. It’s devastating to her and so wrong, and makes me very much appreciate this comic—thank you. (By the way, the friend says the virus’s genome would show scars where it was snipped if it had been created in a lab. There are none. It’s natural.)
That makes sense—you’re probably right.
One report was that his brother Robert died of covid-19, which is why the White House refused to say what he’d died of.
