One woman's story about getting into and out of QAnon. What I find most interesting is her concerns starting out: "feeling that the Democratic Party had betrayed her ... in working-class Detroit who had seen their middle-class lifestyle decline." Not the dyed in the wool conservatives they're often made out to be.
Kids do a better job at basic pandemic safety with help from their teachers. But adults are the problem. Adults! Get your act together!

After reading this review of MyPillow stating it felt like sleeping on a pile of rocks:
I was curious what the "patented fill technology" is:
And that pretty much describes why.
Bought a water leak sensor for my hot water heaters. But it's sat on my desk.

Perhaps not as useful as it could be.
