Hey @JortsTheCat check out this great story about how Minor League Baseball players formed their union! As a baseball fan this is one of my favorite things that's happened in a long time! si.com/mlb/2022/09/22/minor-…

"...when you have the ability to just listen and hear them out, that instantly builds trust, and all of a sudden, you build trust with 2 guys in the clubhouse. They tell 3 guys, and then those 3 guys tell 2 more guys.” On how they unionized the minors: si.com/mlb/2022/09/22/minor-…

So there are two soldiers who apparently have the job of holding the bearskin hats for the members of the bearer party, who perform their duty bareheaded.

This is the kind of “boys will be boys” thing I want to hear about— seeing that something is wrong and doing something about it.
The middle school boys thought their teacher was a ‘creep.’ So they tracked how he treated the girls. bostonglobe.com/2022/09/09/m… via @BostonGlobe

My thoughts are this: if you’re a second baseman, you should be within reasonable distance of second base. And shortstop is called shortstop, not shallow right fielder. If you think there should be four outfielders, rewrite the rules to say so.
Banning shifts is a tough one. Feels like the league shouldn't tell teams how to play. But it's become a battle of which team's R&D Dept. does the best job of taking away what for decades were hits. Is that baseball at its best? Anxious to see how it plays out.

I think the Queen would want us all to live the way she did, with free public housing, basic universal income, and full government health care.

Yet another illustration of why healthcare should not be tied to employment. Because this is some bullshit.

If you had told me back in 2016 that Trump would sell top secret spy and nuclear intel to foreign adversaries, I’d be like “yeah I know, that’s what we keep saying”

my eternal advice to democrats is that no matter what you do, republicans will call it socialism and attack it, so just do the maximum possible to help the most people and don't hobble it out of the starter's gate in an attempt to "get republicans on board." that's all.

Why do I keep seeing “hot takes” challenging Biden to pardon Trump to heal the nation, but none suggesting Trump turn himself in and plead guilty to his crimes to heal the nation? 🤔
