To be clear: I DO NOT WANT BIDEN TO WIN. I’m just saying White America may get behind him in a big way precisedly because he’s promotiong “civility” and “niceness” as a means of social progress.
Facebook destroys everything it touches. It needs to be treated like a public utility and regulated. So does Twitter.
Inhumane Working Conditions at Facebook
Never say Facebook can’t get any worse. https://www.theverge.com/2019/6/19/18681845/facebook-moderator-interviews-video-trauma-ptsd-cognizant-tampa
Oh man @mike was in the hospital with a heart condition! He is doing better, but still has work to do. Please do what ever you do - good vibes, prayers, warm fuzzies - he'll take them all.
Hey Liturgists fam - our little corner of the fediverse is apparently pretty hoppin! on the site https://instances.social, we are 52/5200 (top 1%!) in terms of number of users (3084), but 199/5200 in terms of toots - I guess that means we are less chatty than average. Thank you @mike for setting this up, and giving us an alternative to the Zuckerberg/Dorsey dystopian vision of social media. Good to be here with all of you!
Another great reason to do what you can to help with climate change (and all the other connected injustices we face)? It inspires other people. It inspires you. Do the next right thing, big or teeny tiny. We affect each other. Don't despair, and if you do, find other people to do something with.
I'll tell you what I'm doing if it helps.

I keep thinking, what will we do without her?
I’ve been trying to go back and tag all our episodes that have Rachel in them. You can see them at the link below. If I forgot any, let me know and I’ll update them they appear in this list.

@mastohost Any plans to add Keybase support? I see a lot of Mastodon instances showing up, and I’d love to verify my profile here.
@mike You have a very persuasive ad read for Kiwico. Both crates have been a big hit and I've had so much fun helping them. I'm hoping to have them try on their own next time.
Also, for reasons I don’t understand yet, every church I’ve visited in LA where someone has recognized me has sent me running.
