My kid's best friend has Covid.

He apparently got quite sick with it despite being vaccinated. Was at his sickest about a week ago, and still very audibly sick on his Skype call to my kid right now.

His other best friend has had it, apparently more than once.

They're currently being homeschooled in order to keep their 82 year old grandma safe.

Pandemic definitely not over yet.

Russia blocking grain exports from Ukraine


I wonder if we'll see catastrophic levels of famine because of this.

I wish we would just give Ukraine whatever weapons they need to finish this.

I'll probably get flamed for this, but

I think it was a big mistake for Biden to categorically rule out direct military involvement in Ukraine.

Even if that was his actual position, he should have still left some room for uncertainty in Putin's mind.

I feel that his making that statement gave Putin the sense that he could get away with absolutely anything, up to and including genocide, with the guarantee that we wouldn't intervene.

At this point I'm not sure I can even call what's happening a war. It's more like a sustained and continuous terrorist attack.

At this point we should be putting other possibilities on the table, like saying that any government or military official who travels to the West may be subject to arrest for crimes against humanity, and that might also apply to anyone known to have served in the military during this time period.

We need to start getting creative because I think that he might get to the point of actual genocide, or chemical/biological/tactical nukes.

If we've ruled out direct engagement, then we need to be thinking of some truly draconian policies beyond conventional sanctions.

Anyway, that's JMHO.

Ukrainians blame ordinary Russians.


The thread is interesting. Here's one of the replies.


It seems that many Russians outside of Russia are still supportive of this.

Russians Deporting Mariupol Residents To Camps In Russia.



Invading Russian troops have been deporting Ukrainians to Russia by force, Mariupol Mayor Vadym Boychenko has said in a statement.

The invaders illegally removed people from the city's Left Bank district and shelters in the building of the city's sports club, where more than a thousand people (mostly women and children) had been hiding from the constant bombing.

It is known that the captured Mariupol residents were taken to filtration camps, where the invaders checked people's phones and documents.  After the inspection, some Mariupol residents were redirected to remote cities in Russia, the fate of others remains unknown.

More crimes against humanity.

Battle of Techno House. Part of the 'Denazifying' of Kherson (funny).


If anyone can tell me how to post the full picture from Twitter I'd appreciate it.

For that matter, why should we be upset about Putin interfering in our elections?

It's not like we haven't interfered plenty in the politics of other countries.

It feels like a lot of people on this thread should be okay with it.

Attribution right here.


"I consider it completely unimportant who in the Party will vote, or how. But what is extraordinarily important is this—who will count the votes, and how.” Joseph Stalin, 1923 (as quoted in “Oxford Essential Quotations, 2017)

Apparently from a memoir by Stalin's personal secretary.

Syracuse mother and adult son with Covid-19 die minutes apart at Crouse

Syracuse, N.Y. — A 64-year-old woman and her 30-year-old son - who both had Covid-19 - died a few minutes apart this week in Syracuse.

Jacqueline posted in June a photo of herself with these words around it: “I’m not having the vaccine. My body, My choice.” In May she posted a photo of herself and the words “I trust my immune system not an experimental vaccine. My DNA, My Choice.”

I need to go see if it's posted at Herman Cain Awards yet.
