Purely peaceful protest will go no where, as history has shown. Without threat of action, disruption, maybe what some would consider "violence", protest can and will be simply ignored.

Full electric vehicle adoption is a long way off for many reasons, so easy win gas engine efficiency improvements are nice to see. arstechnica.com/cars/2022/06/p

Planted some trees today. Good to get the hands dirty for a while

I am reading a book about "accidents", but the chapter in there about blame is incredibly relevant to mass shootings. In fact a few chapters are pretty relevant, but the one on blame feels especially so.

The lie we are told over and over again. The gunman acted alone. They are solely to blame.

Its wrong. The blame for extremely predictable tragedies belongs on the systems that enable, encourage, and perpetuate those events.

Disc golf course at Swan Lake state park near Carroll IIowa is a good one! Encountered more pelicans than I would have ever expected.

Been playing with synth apps. Yesterday spent some time trying to learn the concepts and vocabulary, but didn't find a good concise intro. Any recommendations? I am sort of past needing it maybe, but one of my kids is interested

My remaining nitpick is the process of upgrading finding new compatible gnome extensions is still pretty clunky.

The new Extensions Manager is great to have and seems close to solving this maybe, but not there quite yet, in my case at least flathub.org/apps/details/com.m
