Sorry for the limited blogging yesterday, which will continue for the first part of today. One of the unexpected benefits flowing from a death in the family is that people come to town whom one hasn’t seen in a long time. Yesterday was a cousin reunion for the first time in more than twenty years and it was lovely. Cousins are great because they’re closer than friends, but not as abrasively closely as siblings can be.
Anyway, that intro has nothing to do with Bill Whittle’s powerful video about American fascism, which I highly recommend you watch.
