Back row for you Pham.
Was I ever considered front row?
Remember what Jesus said: the first shall be last and the last shall be first, and that's especially important on death row.
Is Jesus the guy who offers 72 virgins?
No, that's Richard Branson. He offers 72 seats on Virgin Atlantic flights, but the first rows board last and the last rows board first.
If you two biddies are finished clucking maybe we can get down to business. Now, is someone going to knock up Pham or what?

I have this feeling you occupy a space that a certain type of person has been waiting for decades to encounter as confirmation of the slippery anti life slope we are on.

I've spent a loooooong time wishing we lived in the fantasy worlds of my enemies.

My midmorning feed is now full of (a) moms and premoms chanting about how 16-year-olds "can't consent to sex" because immature and (b) grown-ass adults giving a sketchy foreign app-maker unnecessary access to their phone data so they can participate in a viral post involving making their faces look funny.

What bugs me about the 'can't consent' thing is that somehow 16-yo girls are devoid of agency and can't say, 'holy shit sex is fun and I want to have some of that,' but 16-yo boys can form mens rea that's indistinguishable from the agency of a 50-yo Epstein-alike. Of course they can consent to some extent, but there are limits, so sure we shouldn't have someone like Epstein manipulating 14-16-year-old girls into prostitution, but at the same time we shouldn't criminalize teens experimenting with sex with other teens.

I peeked in on Twitter and saw that the hashtag #MuellerIsComing is trending. Even after clicking on it I'm not totally sure what's up. I thought the whole Mueller report was done and in the past? What is happening now?

I think Mueller gave some peeps a hint of what he was going to say and everyone lost their shit. It's better than reading a 400 page novel.

Today a trending hashtag is #KhanMeetsTrump. I clicked on it expecting to see some crossover Star Trek memes. I was disappointed.

I've been enjoying peeking at Twitter this week because it's providing a lot of confirmation that I'm very successful in my attempts to avoid all news and information!

The Pakistani PM visit was apparently very under the radar even for news junkies (the internet was affluter that he looked to use the normal international arrivals terminal and mobile lounges at Dulles)
