    Extremely small amounts of aid have gotten in recently but delivery has been suspended repeatedly due to ongoing security concerns. The situation is dire!

  3. This is really special! ‘God Only Knows’ by pretty much every single musician you’ve ever heard of.

  4. Today is my 67th birthday. It’s been another very fortunate trip around the sun! [hat tip to 617] You would think after this many years I would have more figured out.

When the majority in a legislature or a popular vote take away rights of individuals that are protected by the Bill of Rights, then we have an independent judiciary to rectify that situation.
