Hallelujah!!! And there was much rejoicing! The guy at the T-Mo store was able to give my phone the correct three-fingered salute, proving that the phone itself is not dead; it had merely inexplicably run out of juice doing nothing but sitting in my pocket. And in all fairness, a three-year-old phone probably should have had a new battery at least once in its life. It just never occurred to me, since I have never had a single symptom of approaching battery failure.

My phone appears to be dead. None of the buttons does anything at all, and it doesn't even show the charging animation when I plug it in. I am not thrilled.

And if it had to die, why couldn't it have died last night, instead of waking me up at oh-dark-thirty with that flash flood emergency alert?!?

If you think you know everything to know about abortion and still believe women have no right to have the choice, please read this article. Read the whole thing, and give it some thought.

"If you are a woman, never forget that your body is yours. No one has any right to any part of it without your consent. Your breasts are yours, your vagina is yours, your womb is yours. The body that houses your soul is already occupied. It is occupied by you. You live there. And you do not have to let anyone use it without your permission."

I'd kinda like to keep the water, lights, and internet on until we manage to sell the house. But I also think these kids deserve a better education than their local finances can provide. They've got a lot more future ahead of them than I do!
Hey, wonderfuls! I teach at Lighthouse, an alternative high school in Holyoke, MA, where 31% of the population lives below the poverty line. It's at http://Lighthouseholyoke.org, if you wanna see this amazing, little institution. I teach there so I have some hope about our future.

I teach a class to mostly poor, mostly minority kids called Art That Thinks that's mostly electronics, but also other, technical kinds of art. My kids are intensely smart and creative, but we keep running into problems like, "We don't have any tape." I get paid as much as they can afford, but that's very, very little. So when I buy materials out of my pocket, my paycheck evaporates pretty quickly.

We operate on a budget best described as a single, frayed shoestring, but my kids right now are building robots, musical instruments, automating a model train, and binding books.

Can you help us get some tools and materials?

If so, please hit up the Amazon Wishlist I've set up! Already some incredibly generous people have pitched in to help! We've got a drill press on the way now, which will be an amazing opportunity. Others are pitching in electronic parts and tools. I'm hoping someone grabs us that book stapler, cuz the kids who want to do art books have a future in art.

Thank you!
