Out of the Blue

Well, my second cold of the autumn is being a little nastier than my first one. Last time I was over it in three days and wasn't really too sick at all, but this time my URI is hanging around longer and making me feel worse, making it difficult to sleep last night. This shouldn't interfere with our plans to see The Last Jedi this evening, but I'm wondering if it will interfere with my doctor's appointment. My annual physical is coming up and today I am supposed to go to give some blood for them to test. I don't think being sick should affect this, but I'll call when they open to double-check. In unfortunate timing we also got snow last night which is still trickling in, so I'm going to have to drag my sneezing ass out there and shovel at some point. Hopefully the Force will be with me or my taunton will freeze before it reaches the first marker.

What's alarming about Ajit Pai is that hes so openly in the corporate pocket and did this knowing full well the damage it will cause. It's reprehensible and frankly should be criminal. This will be incredibly damaging in the long term, in ways we haven't even imagined yet. Very disappointed today.

Why would he be punished? He is making money for people who already have lots of money. I'm sure his new mates will look after him and he will be sure to make even more money in next CEO/Consulting/lobbying job. Even if NN gets enshrined in law, like Trump's tax cuts for the uber-wealthy, a few years of free for all will make them billions/trillions which can then be leveraged in future lobbying.
