RIP Kirstie Alley.

She was, of course, Saavik in the best Star Trek film.

She was also a beautiful woman, talented and funny and...

And now they start playing the game of “we apologize”…

Sick, corrupt people, all of them. They perfectly knew what they were doing.

Boston area utilities customers had a big surprise in the last couple days -- a huge bill following the rate hikes from last month.

National Grid’s winter energy price hikes meant that the average monthly electric bill went up by 64% and the average monthly natural gas bill increased by 24%.

Eversource electricity customers saw increases between 19% and 30%.

I was looking forward to the First International In-Person Quodmeet.

I had a nice comment, in my head, to tell @Debradelai about it.

But it wasn't meant to be. Or wasn't God's wish. Or the stars weren't aligned for it. Or just a nasty combination of bad luck.

But the operation went well, the kid will need 2 weeks of cast, and we'll all be after it.

Thanks @Gmajv, @Donjanusgjrdrm, and @Timmerax for the good wishes here, as well as @barrsniffsatjejuneanalysis, @timr, and @wziminer elsewhere 💜🙏

He had to be operated on the next day, since both his radius and ulna bones were broken, and were set so off, that they wouldn't heal to complete bones without surgery.

He had metal pieces implanted into his bones, to force them to stay in the right position to heal well.

The operation today was to take them out. They are in the attached photo.

The timing was, in fact, terrible: Our lovely fellow Quod @DonnaLea visits Israel, and I had to be away in the days she was in Jerusalem.

A small health update:

In an earlier toot today, with @antonionpellegrini, @Realknownothing, @BlkLdyPatriot @Teneseo, @Lemonhead, @Linnie, and a few others, I mentioned an operation involving my 9yo kid.

About a year ago, he fell while playing on a high instrument in its school playground, and broke his left arm.

It was bad. I mean, double-elbow bad.

I thought I'd written about it on QV, but I looked through my toots from that time, and apparently I didn't. Don't know how.


One clause in the amendment prohibits rifles and/or shotguns that could accept a magazine holding over five rounds of ammunition.

A report indicates an amendment has been added to Bill C-21, co-opting the handgun ban to prohibit hunting rifles as well. notes: “The proposed changes to Bill C-21 were tacked on by Liberal MP Paul Chiang after it had passed second reading — drawing complaints from opposition MPs who accused the government of sneaking in changes that would expand the scope of prohibited weapons to include hunting rifles.”

I’ve come to the decision that social media is a collection of echo chambers, and those with the biggest bullhorns are decimating conversations of merit. It’s simply too exhausting to endure honestly.

I have a wonderful life. I’m going to go enjoy it. God bless you all.

Sens. Thom Tillis (R-N.C.) and Kyrsten Sinema (D-Ariz.) have reached an agreement on a draft framework of immigration reform compromises, sources familiar with the situation tell me. They involve issues such as the fate of “dreamers” brought here as children and the processing of asylum seekers at the southern border. Will the 10 Republican senators necessary to overcome a filibuster go along?
