So this is how the semester ends

I just finished my third zoom meeting of the day, and also buckled down and got all those lab reports graded, and then wrapped it all up by calculating my students’ tentative final grades. Tomorrow I’ll write up the optional final, which I expect only a few students will take, and then I’m done.

I gotta say, though, seeing that all the women in the country are being stripped of their reproductive rights did put it all in perspective, making my struggles relatively light work. It would have been nicer to see certain horrible people hauled off in chains, though — it’s hard to whistle while you work when the fascists are taking over, and even now I can’t feel much relief at the finish.

    Not with a bang but a whimper.

    Any chance that some of the 73% of the public who don’t oppose abortion, and who generally don’t vote, will find their way to the voting booth? Some Republican politicians have already proposed overturning gay marriage, birth control, and inter-racial marriage, and might start being more vocal after overturning one constitutional right.

    If women are going to have their reproductive rights cut off, maybe the men who support this should have theirs cut off too.
