  1. I was thinking of having them both together, i.e. there can be no peace without justice...but yeah, justice before peace makes sense too.
  2. My son's school has canceled evening classes a couple of times in recent weeks, due to curfews and other offshoots of our recent social unrest. I usually don't fear much for his safety, but this does bring home how serious the situation is. I would not want to be a juror, judge, or anyone else involved in the Chauvin case. Tensions are so high that no matter what the verdict is, someone on one side or another will be dissatisfied. I hope I'm wrong and that all this tension can somehow lead to honest debate, then peace and justice, rather than more anger, destruction, or worse, b
  3. I had my second shot yesterday (Pfizer). I woke up this morning with chills, fatigue, and general aches and pains--not incapacitating, but I can barely focus enough to play with chemicals. At least that means my immune system is doing its job!
  4. ...after a significant number of anti-vaxxers die off, unfortunately, probably taking a number of innocent casualties with them. I wonder if it's even possible to contain this anymore, or if we just have to buckle down for what will essentially be several bad flu seasons.
  5. Thank you for doing what you do for those kids. If I think of better words I'll send them, and I know the previous sentence sounds trite, but it is at least sincere. You've gotta take care of you, man. I'll go out on a short limb and guess that your employer sure won't.
  6. We can use a computer for this assignment?? 🥳
  7. “It's my estimation that every man ever got a statue made of him was one kind of sumbitch or another. -- Malcolm Reynolds” Personally, I'm sure that Lincoln (along with every single other human what came cryin' into the world) had his accomplishments, his mistakes, his merits, and his flaws. He was neither angel nor demon, just human.
  8. Hello Hero Hive Mind, As a shameless child of the 1980s, I'm a fan of The Terminator, among other stories. I recently found a Kickstarter for a Terminator roleplaying game (see below). I'm probably going to back it to some level. Has anyone played a Nightfall game before? Any thouhts/recommendations about this system, these authors, etc.? ( )
  9. Looks like an uptick in my state is in progress (screen grab from World O Meters). It's a little early to know if that will become a sustained trend. Sigh...my return to the dojo is probably going to be delayed again. There are worse things, though.
  10. If only I didn't have celiac disease.....
  11. It is my better half's opinion (and mine too, frankly) that this exact thing is a driving force behind the sudden reopening.
  12. The Tolkien rip-off didn't hit me when I read Sword of Shannara, because I wouldn't read "Lord of the Rings" until many years later. I also stopped after the second book because it felt like too much of a retread, plus I just lost interest in the Shannara setting after that.
