The reason why people assert "Black Lives Matter" is because they are reacting to police killings of blacks.
The terms Black Lives Matter and All Lives Matter, by themselves alone, do not really lay out this issue, so some explanation is needed.

When someone likes or retweets something you posted, and you wonder if they are aware that you unfollowed them months ago.

In the mail this evening, I got a book sent to "Current Resident" with my address.  It is an 94-page softcover called National Sunday Law / A. Jan Marcussen.  I read from Wikipedia that the author has some theology similar to the  Seventh Day Adventist, although the  Seventh Day Adventist deny a connection with this author.  By the time anyone reads this, the book will be in recycle, and I will be  pondering why anyone would spend money to send it out.

Why has our constitutionally-protected right to discuss the right to bear arms been silenced on this forum? I stand with the bears!

Really? . . . People do not assume a higher level knowledge other than the "Generalized Common Abstract."

This is what I'm talking about.

I should watch news less. Following news is mostly completely useless and destroys one's peace of mind.

Oh I definitely agree with that.  I actually don't believe we're wired to handle a 24-hour global news cycle.  I'm not, at any rate.  :)  But something more than 0 might be warranted.  I learn of things thirdhand, and have to go back and look them up.

I hate Fordham University. There are no bears at Fordham University. I also hate the news. Not even bears could save the news.

Maybe, there's a world where we won't have to run, and
Maybe, there's a time we'll call our own,
Living free in harmony and majesty,
Eat the news,
Gentle Ben,
Eat the news

Brilko, there should be bears at the Bronx Zoo, which is not far from Fordham.

I like bears.

The Botanical Gardens is also close to the Bronx Zoo. The Gardens do not admit bears.

I want to buy an ereader that isn't Kindle.
FWIW, ended up having Kobo's ereader. At least on my end it was a bit cheaper than Kindle and all of internet seemed to recommend it as the best non-Kindle.

I almost have too much light pollution to see comet Neowise, but I spotted it tonight.  I only have a pair of binoculars, so it was nothing compared to what you see on the Internet, but I thought it was neat seeing as it will not be back for 6,800 years or so.

Right, what is 10,000 minus 6800? . . .

I won a copy of "The Essential Desmond Tutu" on Ebay... it's now the littlest book I've ever owned. I'm guessing it was designed to easily be sold at airport gift shops and the like?

Also, I bet when I'm their age I'll move more like the Dalai Lama and less like Archbp. Tutu...

If they don’t know me by now
They will never, never, never know me

I’ve never met the archbishop but I got bitten by Dolly Llama.

Actual footage of me looking at the sign on the door when I found out the gym was going to be closed due to Covid:



(actually I haven't had a gym membership in like 15 months, but nevermind that)

So I was at this local park and suddenly someone started to play trumpet almost right but just slightly out of tune. Just the right way in order to it sound super awkward. This brought me great joy.
