Just a guy.
Seems to me a rather spiteful move, to cancel a friend just cause they tried to stop you from ruining your own life in defense of someone as manipulative as Blossom. Way I see it, both girls acted in good faith, and owe each other no apology. But they do owe each other forgiveness.
Betrayal? Betrayed how? Just cause Lottie wouldn’t join Shauna’s “coalition of the willing” in defending the reigning school bully against an attempted coup? Can hardly fault her for trying to keep her bestie from getting suspended, especially for the likes of Blossom Cooper.
Wonder if Blossom and Shauna are even still hanging out, or if this has become a more personal grudge.
Moral of the story….those who forget the past are doomed to…….wait, have we been here before? Feeling a sense of deja vu, like we’ve been going in circles. Meh, probably just my imagination. Anyway, those who forget the past are doomed to repeat it.
One can witness the effects of gentrification in just about any city or town in any country. The problem is particularly bad on the US West Coast, where it is mostly driven by the tech industry. Even the lowest rung tech workers can make 5 times more on average than an employee of any other type of business. Whenever an incubator or a regional HQ moves into the area, all the homeowners start planning for Florida or New Mexico, and all the renters start digging trenches, because the rent and property taxes are likely to skyrocket in the near term.
The worst part is that many states give these types of business juicy tax incentives to set up shop, regardless of the strain they put on the local infrastructure, which the local government still has to pay for BTW (another reason for the tax increases on regular households, along with the higher ad valorem valuations of the properties).
The result is that poorer people are pushed out to the city margins, while the city center becomes more and more anti-septic, a place for predatory parking garages and posh shops that you have to step over homeless people to get into.
No idea. But I’m starting to get a Night in the Woods vibe here. Has the Tackleford Chamber of Commerce made the same pact with the Black Goat?
Don’t let any surviving Unsullied hear you say that. They’re still in mourning.
Maybe he makes a great fall guy?
Brown suit over there kinda looks like Leon Trotsky. But why would Comrade Trotsky still be alive, still be young, and working for a capitalist cabal? Unless those rumors about the time machine were true…
Jesus lads, she’s just a reporter. Not Daenerys Targaryen.
