Kind of sad news. I don't think I realized there was a 3rd season of Marvel's Runaways, so I never got around to watching it. I enjoyed the first 2 seasons, so I definitely would have liked to have seen it. I hope it comes back to some legitimate streaming service, since it's been removed from Disney+ and Hulu.
"Book business advocacy organizations, including the Association of American Publishers, will join a federal lawsuit over a recently passed law in Arkansas that would make librarians criminally liabile for providing allegedly 'obscene' books to minors."

“When I leave my DC office and work remotely, I talk to people who are distributed throughout my home state, and that assures me that we should make sure that our government is run by people in Washington DC and certainly not by distributed teams in places like my home state.”

We won trivia again, tonight! Except for 1 hiccup in the halftime question (I knew the right story, but chose the wrong character), we got every question right, including the final, so we scored a total of 88 out of a possible 90 points. I could be wrong, but I _think_ we beat the 2nd place team by 10 points.
This is annoying. It seems that, since HBO Max became "Max", it no longer remembers what I'm watching. It doesn't even recognize that I watched the latest episode of the series in watching, and it keeps thinking I should resume S1E1 of the series (only after I search for it, since it's no longer in my "Keep watching" list)

It seems more and more clear that the Republican extremists in control of the House don't want to prevent default on the debt they helped to create.
They WANT a default. They want the economy to crash, and then take total control of Washington (and beyond) next year.
They need help from Big Journalism to do this. And they're getting it, as the political press treats this extortion/sabotage as just another horse race story with two roughly equivalent sides.
