Back to the World

One disadvantage of taking long train trips is that I tend to get disconnected from the news outside the FtB bubble; and I’m still about a week behind in my Pharyngula reading.

I knew from a rail-related e-mail list about the NS derailment and fire in Ohio and the fact that pets, livestock and wildlife seem to be dying from the toxic chemicals; but I turned on the TV this morning and found out about yet another school shooting and known Trumpista, Nikki Haley, running for president.  I haven’t been able to process it all yet.
