There is something terribly wrong with this country when there are pot users in prisons

and convicted child murderers being pardoned and walking among us.

That is all.

Correct me if I am wrong, but it seems like it used to take years for a case to come up to Supreme

Court level. Now, it seems like it takes days. Am I remembering this wrong? If I am not wrong, what is different now?

A question about vaccines and masks

Once vaccines become available to the public, it seems to me that anti-maskers can just walk around with impunity. If questioned, they can just say they have had the vaccine, whether true or not.

So, will the safe path be just to continue wearing mask for the rest of next year?

How long do you expect to be wearing a mask because of the risk of covid?

I had a dream last nite.

This really happened. I have had some strange dreams in my life, but this one may tower over all the others.

In my dream, there are three elderly women, one of which "may" be me. These women, who live together, find a note in an old tin box. On the note is scribbled a spell of sorts. It reads, "You have a choice. You can live out the rest of your lives or you can live the next 24 hours as the 20 year old you were 65 years ago. Once you decide, either do nothing and live out your lives or say these words, "I want to be young again."

The three women spent most of the evening trying to decide which option to accept. In the end, they decided on their younger selves. They closed their eyes and mouthed the incantation while holding hands. When they opened their eyes, they were young again and for the next 24 hours enjoyed all the benefits that come with youth.

The dream ended with me watching my two compatriots quickly age and pass away within minutes of the 24 hr deadline. The last thing I remember before waking was slowing closing my eyes and smiling contently.

I was unable to return to sleep.

Now, the question. What would YOU do?
