inscienceandcatgames said: I've been pretty good. Settling into my job with the state. I'm learning a lot, get to do some tech type writing, even learning to do grant reporting. I'd rather write more and I'm pretty sure insurance isn't my passion, but I do kinda enjoy the regulatory aspect of it. I enjoy the hours and the free time related to that. I really need to work harder on writing outside of work now to get ahead.

Cool! That sounds interesting. You have to pay your dues somewhere and sometimes the job you don’t love is training you for the one you do!

I need to write too. I’ve been so beat after work that I haven’t done much. Started a creative writing class online that I’ve yet to look at. Seems like a winter project. I have a year to start it!

Keep it real, Ian! You going to Orton Park Fest? I’ll be there Saturday night, probably Sunday. Cheers!

They’re nice photos, but I wouldn’t want someone taking my photo on the bus and posting it online. Would you?* mtsullivan said: My 'people on the bus' series is street photography; taking pictures of people in public spaces. This has been done for decades. I don't ask permission. If you're in a public space you can't assume privacy. Thanks for looking and asking!

Then I’ll unfollow out of respect to those who may prefer privacy.

“Black men and boys” have been the target of the war on drugs’ racist policies—stopped, frisked and disturbed—“often before they’re old enough to vote…Those youths are arrested most often for nonviolent first offenses that would go ignored in middle-class white neighborhoods…Here are white men poised to run big marijuana businesses, dreaming of cashing in big—big money, big businesses selling weed—after 40 years of impoverished black kids getting prison time for selling weed, and their families and futures destroyed. Now, white men are planning to get rich doing precisely the same thing?”   ~~Michelle Alexander

Preach!
