The longer this goes on, the more I'm thinking we are living in the crazy years that Heinlein wrote about. People everywhere seem to be getting down with getting their hate on and making other people criminals, thought criminals and jailable.
A new bill being considered by the California State Senate would punish people who “willfully and repeatedly” refuse “to use a transgender resident’s preferred name or pronouns” in a public health, retirement or housing institution.
I preferred the polite society. I don't know where it went but I do miss it. I suppose, California being California, the far end of the high speed train to nowhere will contain the 2 or 3 polite nice people left in California.

I remember my first term at college a long time ago. One of the guys that lived on the same floor was from this incredible golden land with beaches, beautiful scenery, the best schools in the country and where all the kids were a little above average. He was talking about Moonbeam's first term as governor of California before moonbeam went and ruined it with his friends the democrats, socialists, communists, nazis and rakehells and ne'erdowells.

I'm waiting for the bright, personable and single young ladies to start stripping down at bus stops and call statisticians "Potty".
But it is real close. Scudder is next?
We'll see. I'm too old to worry about it but old enough to want to help unscrew it.
Wea re indeed living in interesting times.

I don't see Scudder in our future.
I can see I might have to hang out at bus stops.
One of the very few times God smiled on me, shortly before the inevitable, I checked into a really nice beach hotel in Mahe, Seychelles and those were really beautiful curvaceous babes of the French persuasion on the beach in their topless suits. I suspect I'm going to get Imelda Marcos at the bus stop convergence. After considering the future of bus stops, I'll stick with uber.

You and me. I don't plan to entertain anymore pronouns.
