I can't watch too much of the Whitman Alabama project at once, or I get a little overwhelmed. That's what good readings do. Here's verse one. The first time I heard it was on NPR around a month ago. I had to turn it off because I started tearing up, and when driving through the mountains one needs to keep their eyes on the road.

Nerdpals, computer trouble shooting needed.

My friend has an HP Compaq which suddenly decided not to boot or connect to the monitors at all. When powered up it attempts to boot, but then the fan just runs at full power. Monitors and power supply seem to be okay. Fried motherboard? Graphics card? Send advice... Without judging hardware and system choice plsthx?

Oh, hell no! Librarians, you know what to do! And you have big voices and FACTS on your side. Tear it up, sisters and brothers. Word-nerds, stand by their sides.

I propose that EVERY school and EVERY public library hold a protest. I'll stand. I'll march. I'll memorize books to recite on the train tracks when the world ends if needed.

American Library Association (ALA) President Julie Todaro today issued the following statement:

"The President's proposal to eliminate the Institute of Museum and Library Services in his FY2018 budget just released, and with it effectively all federal funding for libraries of all kinds, is counterproductive and short-sighted. The American Library Association will mobilize its members, Congressional library champions and the millions upon millions of people we serve in every zip code to keep those ill-advised proposed cuts from becoming a Congressional reality. Libraries leverage the tiny amount of federal funds they receive through their states into an incredible range of services for virtually all Americans everywhere to produce what could well be the highest economic and social "ROI" in the entire federal budget.

"America's more than 120,000 public, school, college and university and many other libraries aren't piles of archived books. They're trusted centers for technology, job counseling, retraining, veterans services, entrepreneurship, education, teaching and learning and free inquiry at the core of communities in every state in the country – and in every Congressional district. And they’re staffed by the original search engines: skilled and engaged librarians."
If you voted for Trump and the GOP...and you support these bullshit budget cuts, you, ladies and gentleman, are responsible for shredding the fabric of your own existence, taking a shit on it, setting it on fire, and then rubbing your own ashy shit existence in everyone's face like it's the most beautiful glitter body paint you've ever laid eyes on. When in fact it just makes you a really shitty human with no logic or foresight to see that you've been conned. There is not A SINGLE decision yet that has come out of this White House that has in any way benefited the demographic of his largest supporters.

This budget proposal is a war on rural America, sick America, elderly America, educated America, poor America, hungry America, and young America. The only thing it does is bolster the War Machine and the rich who profit.

What is the fucking point of a beefed up military when there's nothing left to fight for but scraps???

The UK is republishing their Armageddon Advice Guide , so Scarfolk is lending a hand as well. It is best to be prepared.
