It’s day 84. I’m writing and waiting for Store to door to deliver groceries, which I will then put away. I’m feeling pretty tired, because my body is trying to revert to the old schedule, but I knew this would take time.

From Huffington Post: Punk rock band Dropkick Murphys is not happy with Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker (R).
Until I saw this, I had never heard of Dropkick Murphys. I became an instant fan, even though Punk Rock does nothing for me. Dropkick the Fartfuhrer of Fitzwalkerstan!

I would love to see her do it. Republican Family Values means only that Republicans love to intrude into YOUR family’s values.
From Think Progress: At least professionally, the Bernalillo County District Attorney’s office has already paid for filing murder charges against two cops who shot and killed a homeless man in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
Just a day after DA Kari Brandenburg announced for the first time in recent memory that she would pursue criminal charges against cops for an on-duty deadly shooting, there was another police shooting in the city, which has seen a spate of fatal police shootings since 2010 at eight times the rate of New York City.
And when a prosecutor from Brandenburg’s office went to the scene and sought to attend an investigative briefing, as prosecutors had been doing for years as part of their collection of evidence, police wouldn’t let her in. They claimed that now that the DA’s office had filed criminal charges against a cop, they had a “conflict of interest” and should be excluded.
This is clearly abuse of police power and the officers responsible should be severely punished.
