Good job! Coincidentally, James put a new knob on my slow-cooker, too. He bought the knob, but it was cheap, and MUCH cheaper than replacing the lid or the cooker.

To my mind, treating people with disabilities as less deserving of life is the ultimate dehumanization, and it leads to less care and empathy and health-care money for people who are seen as less important or less worthy of a full, long life. And it kills people. I have a hard time seeing all of those suicides as suicides, as opposed to self-defense or even murder. We kill people when we refuse to work harder at making their lives livable, and when we treat them as a collection of ailments rather than as living, valuable humans.

(It is not that I don't understand the impulse behind wanting suicide to be an option for people. I just wish that relieving suffering and valuing everyone were so widespread that wayyyy fewer people thought suicide was their best or only option.)

DO YOU TEXT & DRIVE? Moriah Rodriguez (Southwestern College) did, but she is trying to stop! Click the link below to see her short essay (with screen cap) about her texting and driving issue. She is one of 5 finalists in our $1,000, Don't Text & Drive Scholarship. If her post gets more social media interaction than the other finalists, she wins! +1!

One of the thing I'm proudest of is the number of ex-felons I registered to vote during the first Obama candidacy. I have never heard a rational reason why they should not be allowed to vote.

Starting to learn to work with Arduino. Just made "my" first program (that is, an edit of an existing sample program) do its thing on the first try! Funny how little I have to accomplish to feel accomplished.

Okay, so there's no sound, and it's not very interesting, but I just posted my first YouTube video! https://youtu.be/2WoUobGZwhE

The first gift he ever sent me was popcorn. Thank you, +Guy Thomas​, for the utterly sweet (/cheesy/salty) birthday present!
