Just listened to a museum talk of #RomeoThe Wolf out of Juneau, Alaska.
For six years (2003-2009), the township was accosted by the friendliest wolf that has ever been recorded since the domestication process began some 30'000 years ago. The great old good boy went along and charmed domesticated dogs and people for hours and hours each day, for no other pleasure to be had than companionship.
I wish people could allow more of that in this world.
Doing some research on this #FreeRocky malarkey, and I guess I shouldn't be shocked at the lengths to which people go to miss the point of a judicial system...

The Lie of the Environmentally Friendly Oil Refinery:
Tuesday #column: Hundreds of thousands flock to the street in Hong Kong, and are by their Communist overlords branded lawless foreign agitators. Because the People's Voice has no place in the People's Republic. #hongkongprotests #hongkongextraditionbill #writing #politics
A Hong Kong Congress:
Random day #poetry: It is woefully unbecoming, distasteful even, being morose in public.
The Iron Maiden of Mirth:
Tuesday #column: The Swedish gov proves themselves faithful followers of the Cult of the Fireplace Fodder and Expired News Feed, as they revise the mission statement of Swedish #publicservice to include the "defence of commercial media". #svepol #politics #writing

Tuesday #column: Dealing with the a particularly virulent myth endemic in the democratic process, perpetrated by the political establishment. That of the wasted vote. #democracy #EuElection2019 #writing
The Myth of the Wasted Vote:
Tuesday #column: The White House press proceedings and The Mueller report has made many things evident, not least of which how opaque the US government is to its public. And, I'm sorry to say, that's just not how you run a #democracy... #transparency #writing
