On the bus back from an NBA game, there is a couple who were also at the game, who look to be only slightly older than me (I’m 49) and the woman is wearing a black vest covered nearly 100% with metal band patches. Rock on, middle aged metal loving basketball fans. 🤘🏻

Coming up at 0000 UTC on @tilderadio is the final (for now) episode of the Freshmaker Show. Be there, or don't.

While there are plenty of people that are gleefully happy that Facebook went down, I take a different view. I'm thinking of the engineers at Facebook who were suddenly under immense, superhuman pressure to get things up and running again. I've been in that situation before, and it sucks.

Spare me the "they chose to work at Facebook" lecture. The only people who sign up to fight fires are firefighters. They're as human as me and they had a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day.

crime and death in the USA 

Three people were shot on my block last night. One died. Am finding out now that the fatality was a career firefighter out in the burbs, with the department that helped save my life after I was hit by an out-of-control driver on the Beltway in 2007.

So very sad and senseless. Gun violence is the American disease. We need the cure.
