meta + politics
It's almost always hard to tell, of course. But years ago that helped me distinguish useful from non-useful anger, and recognize that the anger and lived experience of the marginalized is usually more useful than mine.
Anyways, yeah. If you have behavior patterns you don't like left over from twitter's 24/7 rageathon, think of Mastodon as an opportunity to rebuild from where you're at now rather than where you've been.
www.flightaware.com has been wonderful from tracking my daughter's flights to and from Israel. #peaceofmind
Just a thought, but seeing the Twitterrific folks here made me wonder what would happen if they and other devs who are being hit by the Twitter API changes start seeing Mastodon as a more reliable/interesting platform and invest in the future of it. This could be a game changer for Mastodon. I always closely connected the success of Twitter with good third party apps. For those devs it’s now all about their future as well. /cc @bigzaphod
PA Catholic Church Indictment Thoughts
This indictment in PA has me very sad not only for the victims.
My father was in seminary with at least one offender and he is my godfather.
AFAIR he didn't touch me and when I heard several years ago what he did (there was a civil case), I was devastated because I had always thought of him as a good person.
I just checked in with my dad to see how he is doing. This isn't be best time for him because his brother just went into hospice care.
