I hate that the EPA is still run by someone who thinks it stands for Economic Pandering Agency or something similar. But props to The Hill for choosing a photo of the aftermath of a fire to illustrate the article.

I love the tone in this bit from the Long Beach Comic-Con FAQ

To complete my costume, I carry a large battle-axe that I hone to razor sharpness every day. It’s cool for me to bring that, right?

Ummm, seriously? Props are one thing, but anything that could take an eye out, could hurt someone, or make the cops (or my mother) take it away from you, is not allowed. Please refer to our policies for more clarification.

RT @ACLU: BREAKING: The Department of Labor just proposed a rule that aims to let government contractors fire workers who are LGBTQ, or who are pregnant and unmarried, based on the employers’ religious views. This is taxpayer-funded discrimination in the name of religion. Period.

RT @aptly_engineerd: Twitter is a great place for breeding despair re fascism, climate, the overall struggle for justice, etc. But the more time I spend off it the more I see that people are fighting back, almost everywhere, in ways that usually don’t make it on here. We are not as alone as we think

RT @MollyJongFast: Today is two years since Charlottesville and in those two years the president has done everything in his power to ignore and tacitly encourage white supremacy. In those two years, White supremacy has bloomed into a plague that will haunt America for decades to come.
