  1. I hear the doorbell ring and suddenly the panic takes me
    The sound so ominously tearing through the silence
    I cannot move, I'm standing
    Numb and frozen
    Among the things I love so dearly
    The books, the paintings and the furniture
    Help me

     

    The signal's sounding once again and someone tries the door-knob
    None of my friends would be so stupidly impatient
    And they don't dare to come here
    Anymore now
    But how I loved our secret meetings
    We talked and talked in quiet voices
    Smiling

     

    Now I hear them moving
    Muffled noises coming through the door
    I feel I'm
    Crackin' up
    Voices growing louder, irritation building
    And I'm close to fainting
    Crackin' up

     

    They must know by now I'm in here trembling
    In a terror evergrowing
    Crackin' up
    My whole world is falling, going crazy
    There is no escaping now, I'm
    Crackin' up

     

    These walls have witnessed all the anguish of humiliation
    And seen the hope of freedom glow in shining faces
    And now they've come to take me
    Come to break me
    And yet it isn't unexpected
    I have been waiting for these visitors
    Help me

     

    Now I hear them moving
    Muffled noises coming through the door
    I feel I'm
    Crackin' up
    Voices growing louder, irritation building
    And I'm close to fainting
    Crackin' up

     

    They must know by now I'm in here trembling
    In a terror evergrowing
    Crackin' up
    My whole world is falling, going crazy
    There is no escaping now, I'm
    Crackin' up

     

    Now I hear them moving
    Muffled noises coming through the door
    I feel I'm
    Crackin' up
    Voices growing louder, irritation building
    And I'm close to fainting

    Crackin' up (I have been waiting for these visitors)

     

    They must know by now I'm in here trembling

    Crackin' up (I have been waiting for these visitors)

    I'm posting this because I'm not sure anyone can spin this more than the basic facts and video show, regardless of source

     

    https://www.washingtonpost.com/nation/2020/06/05/buffalo-officers-suspended-shoving-man/

     

    Follow-up from the police union after the suspensions:

     

    “Fifty-seven [officers] resigned in disgust because of the treatment of two of their members, who were simply executing orders,” union president John Evans told NBC affiliate WGRZ.

     

    Buffalo police officers resign from unit in protest of suspended colleagues who shoved man, 75, to ground


  3. Hmm, interesting dynamic here. Captain Blue (equivalent Fleet rank First Lieutenant, I believe) will be in charge of the jarheads. I don't know if our ship's Captain has experience with (or even the capacity for) flying a Viper, so that pretty much puts Ivanova in charge of the fighter pilots. There will probably be some friction there.

     

    That's assuming that the damned A.I. doesn't just decide to overrule (and/or space) all of us puny organics and take over all the operations itself, of course.


  4. There are always earthquakes clustered around the park. It sits on top of an active hotspot.

     

    Little known fact: The Yellowstone seismic monitoring station is, in fact, on the campus of the University of Utah in Salt Lake City. The geologist who runs the station was one of my professors this spring. They have hundreds (or thousands?) of monitors around the park that send real-time data via a dedicated T1 line to the monitoring station at the U.

     

    But you are right about one thing: If the Yellowstone supervolcano decided to erupt, we wouldn't have to worry about any of the rest of this crap.


  5. Trump's former defense secretary Mattis blasts president as a threat to American democracy

     

    Noting his own oath to uphold the Constitution when he first joined the military, Mattis wrote, "Never did I dream that troops taking that same oath would be ordered under any circumstance to violate the Constitutional rights of their fellow citizens – much less to provide a bizarre photo op for the elected commander-in-chief, with military leadership standing alongside."
