I just deleted the two photos that I posted yesterday because I forgot to include copyright info. I'll re-post them with copyright info later this week.

Sorry about posting, and then deleting a link to my flickr page. Something (not sure what) made me feel like it wasn't a good idea.

The world is getting weirder by the goddamned minute. No additional context.

The Democratic party of Minnesota is running a half-day of training tomorrow for pro-choice Democratic women who are interested in running for office.

And if you're a pro-choice woman in Minnesota, I ask that you go. We need more perspectives in politics than a bunch of old, white guys.


If you don't live in MN, check here for more training locations and events:

My little atom emoji disappeared from the emoji list and my profile. I am surprisingly, disproportionately bummed out about it. I guess the radioactive symbol will have to work in its place.

I love my job, but sometimes working in an academic/medical library can provide unfortunate reminders that my fellow human beings have weird, and apparently painful predilections: octodon.social/media/dufa8bqM6

Another indictment of the American system of public K-12 education?
