I won! I finally reached 50k in my pirates & barbarians swashbuckling fantasy adventure for #NaNoWriMo - at 2:25am! Here's my reward box which I wisely opened after some sleep! Love the note from my wife & the very appropriate chill-out tea rather than my usual super-dense coffee. And yes, that is a party popper!

What the actual fuck. One of my favorite political commentators, Mehdi Hasan, has been speaking out very eloquently, with his usual evidence-based arguments, in favor of Palestinian rights. And as a result, MSNBC canceled his popular show. This is a terrifying sign that so-called free speech in this country is anything but free. presswatchers.org/2023/11/msnb

Sen Whitehouse is a hero.

Via Sen Sheldon Whitehouse

You just watched every permutation of Republican obstruction: first, invoking the 2-hour rule; second, trying to deny a quorum; third, interrupting the vote with points of order; fourth, a general walk-out.

It shows how *desperately* Republicans want to prevent Americans from seeing what’s been going on between the right-wing billionaires and the gift-taking justices. It has to be really bad to trigger that barrage of procedural weapons.

I'm willing to stick my neck out.

If there's a Trump obit before the end of the year, I'll go back to church for an entire month.

This Vox article is notable for the way it simply refuses to say that women perhaps don't want to be treated as walking wombs owned by some man, their bodies wrecked by dangers doctors ignore, and then cut loose by governments that only want soldiers and consumers. vox.com/23971366/declining-bir

"A pair of #Jewish House #Democrats is introducing a resolution on Tuesday condemning a #Republican bill to expel #Palestinians from the U.S., Axios has learned.

Why it matters: While lawmakers often condemn or censure each other for controversial rhetoric, it's rare for legislation to spark a formal rebuke.

Driving the news: The two-page resolution, a copy of which was first shared with Axios, is being introduced by Reps. Greg Landsman (D-Ohio) and Dan Goldman (D-N.Y.), both of whom are Jewish and steadfastly pro- #Israel."

Rewatched Guillermo del Toro’s “Crimson Peak” last night because I was in the mood for Gothic horror and this film is almost an overdose of that shit. I seem to notice new scary details every time I watch it.

@kristinHenry If we want people to move off of corporate social, artists, artisans, sex workers, and so on need to feel like they can still make a living. IF the goal is to get people to move from corporate social, this just has to be acknowledged and we have to find ways to accept that sometimes people might share links or solicit sales.

"However counter-intuitive it may sound, there are three good grounds – ethical ones, at that – for refusing to join in the chorus of condemnation of Hamas' actions on October 7."

Robert De Niro says his speech at last night's Gotham Awards was edited, with a sizeable chunk of it omitted from the teleprompter. The actor was accepting the Historical Icon and Creator Tribute award on behalf of "Killers of the Flower Moon." He ended up reading the original speech, which referenced the whitewashing of the Florida history curriculum and Trump's lies, from his phone. Here's more from Entertainment Weekly.
