  2. a few more clarifications (1 Reply)

    Cindy has already moved back to Arlington.

    She lived in Arlington previously for 32 years – during which time many of us got to know her and work with her – before a serious family situation caused her to move for safety reasons. In the 4 years she was gone she never stopped serving the district. But she *has* moved back to Arlington.

    Disclaimer: I am a volunteer with Cindy’s campaign.

  3. this sums it up well (0 Replies)

    We don’t need to reinvent the wheel-we just gotta do a better job of being ourselves.

  4. he's setting himself up (0 Replies)

    The goal is to get enough people to not know who to believe. His little lies now are nothing compared to what he’ll try when a real crisis occurs. That’s when the shit will hit the fan.

  5. he lost even though he was on the MA ballot (1 Reply)

    So I assume he’d also have lost if he hadn’t been on the ballot.

  6. but.... (1 Reply)

    No change in election result.

  7. more likely... (0 Replies)

    … he’d bring up this whole “I lost NH because of buses of voters from MA” deal. “You guys know what I’m talking about, right?” he’d assert.

  8. unfortunately... (1 Reply)

    As far as I know (and someone correct me if I’m wrong), the official Nielsen ratings are only collected from Nielsen households. While your own provider might be track of what you watch / DVR, I’m pretty sure that’s their own data and doesn’t go into the Nielsen numbers – unless that’s changed recently.

    Certainly, tuning an OTA TV to a show doesn’t get counted.

  9. problem is... (0 Replies)

    … you gotta call it and do something about it before that happens.

    “Please state your name”
    “Neil Gorsuch?”
    “It’s not Merrick Garland?”
    “No.”
    “Mr. Chairman, I yield back.”

  11. self-care (0 Replies)

    They are counting on your being discombobulated by the pace of unexpected events, and they are counting on your getting exhausted and losing energy. (“Sure, they’re protesting and calling their Senators now, but give it six months and it’ll die down.”) Pace yourself, and keep your eye on the long game as well as the immediate crisis.

    Along these lines, do your best to take care of yourself. A bunch of sick zombies are less effective than healthy people with clear minds. Get enough sleep. Don’t give in to the temptation to overuse alcohol or other substances (especially if you are sober due to addiction). Eat normally. Regularly spend some time totally ignoring the news and doing something you love. Spend time with loved ones. Hugs – lots of hugs.

  12. not so nerdy (0 Replies)

    If there is any science most New Englanders should understand these days, it’s the Ideal Gas Law.

  13. not a good date this year (1 Reply)

    I don’t think the people pushing this idea took a good look at their calendars. That’s Easter weekend. Participation will likely be dampened as a result. Lots of families have other plans.

  14. recommendation (0 Replies)

    Read / follow Sarah Kendzior. She’s been right about just about everything so far.

  15. missing at least one important point (1 Reply)

    And it has to do with the written constitution.

    I think the Russians participated in helping this man get elected. And they helped destroy the candidacy of Hillary Clinton.

    - John Lewis

    He’s seen intel that the rest of us have not.

  16. seems that the time is ripe... (0 Replies)

    … for one (last?) appearance of The Blimp. Editors?

  17. done (0 Replies)

    Thanks for getting this out.
