I am still very much processing that hearing...

My jaw dropped several times.

What a day of news. SCOTUS guts rights and hints at going further while Congress passes the first gun control bill in 30 years.

sonicrocketman

In an effort to put what little positivity I have today into the world: this SCOTUS decision contradicts what over 60% of American's want and will likely hurt, not help, Republicans in the upcoming elections.

Though I'm not hopeful enough that it will be enough.

Legal question: If the Supreme Court does strike down same-sex marriage (as they are hinting), does that mean that California's technically-still-on-the-books-but-deemed-invalid constitutional ban would resume?

Seems like something we should look into. /cc @AsmChrisWard

@Yascha_Mounk was talking about democracy as a public park, so I figured I would enjoy the book in the Balboa Park.

Sometimes it's not the computer. It's that you can't read.

Apparently I am very feisty today.

sonicrocketman

At the Voice of San Diego podcast taping!

It continues to break my brain that Californians (incl San Diegans) can look around them and not see the crisis of the moment.

We do not have enough housing and without even more aggressive efforts we will not meet our needs this decade.

Mail improvements look great.

I am not looking forward to rebooting my iPhone in order to get my speedometer working again...

CarPlay is great, but I have regular bugs with it.

sonicrocketman

Is it just me, or is it very concerining to watch basically all major tech companies become pseudo-banks and loan brokers?

New lockscreen stuff is cool, but "Mark Messages as Unread" is the best feature of WWDC.

Yes I know they event just started, but I don't care.

sonicrocketman

Yes. To all of this

San Diego deserves a great city hall.

Am I wrong to think that San Diego Community Power is, by far, the biggest single thing San Diego has ever done to address climate change?

It sure seems like it. By default everyone enrolled gets 50% renewable power (up 19% from SDGE) & there’s a cheap option for 100%.

Huge.

I think I would have instead written, “carbon-free and renewable.” My brain first read “renewable and carbon free” which does not mean the same thing.

Me: where can I buy a “.book” domain?

Internet: you can’t.

Me: ok, but why?

Internet: because Amazon owns them all.

Me: oh. 😔

Newspaper: read. New wall art: hung. Beowulf: finished.

A good Sunday so far.

There is an avocado in the street

Ripe, rich, ready

For a day not now to come

Never guacamole will it be

Nor on tacos

Instead lonely

Once filled with dreams 

Of salads, chips, and cheese

Unmet

Now it lies there in the street

Alone

Today is a Tycho and Bach day.

sonicrocketman

Just beat today’s (now yesterday’s) Wordle with literally 15 seconds to midnight. Kept the streak!

sonicrocketman

I am lé tired.

sonicrocketman

We meet again Interpol.
