Dear Katie Benner of the NYT, who thinks we need to listen more to Trump supporters because "there's something there we're not understanding." It's RACISM. Sure their answers don't make sense because no one is going to say "it's because I'm racist", so they make something else up.

Vaccines should be free regardless of your insurance status. https://www.timesunion.com/health/article/insurance-issues-lead-cvs-others-cancel-covid-18368441.php?utm_campaign=CMS%20Sharing%20Tools%20(Premium)&utm_source=t.co&utm_medium=referral
Today was ... interesting. If you followed me for the past months over on the shitbird site, you might have seen a bunch of angry German words, lots of graphs, and the occassional news paper, radio, or TV snippet with yours truely. Let me explain.

If you live in the Netherlands and use or have used Google services you may be entitled to financial compensation. The current claim will be €750- pp. Of course, this is a high anchoring point and the financier will keep 18-25%, but if Google loses the case it'll probably still be a not insignificant amount of money.
