There’s still a lot of horrible stuff in the news. Donald Trump, apparently doesn’t celebrate the holidays. Or rather, he celebrates them by increasing the probability of nuclear war. But we have given up on sending each other links about such things this week. Please do, however, click on the Activism tab, sign up for any one of the weekly newsletters or find an action group in your area, and if you can, talk with friends and family about what you can do and what they’re doing going forward. Our combined actions will make a difference and every step we take has a positive probability of saving lives. It can be scary and I know my DH is dreading bring up politics with his family because sometimes it is hard to do the right thing, but we all need to do the right thing as best we can.
Texas (illegally) kicks planned parenthood out of Medicaid
toxic, toxic masculinity in rural white men (whatta shock I know)
News organizations are so important.

Preschool is good for society?
higher priced majors => more financial aid => better representation of disadvantaged students

mouseover has a heartwarming story
I want this, preferably filled with cherries and marzipan.
Just for a tiny bit of joy, here’s a repost of a favorite Christmas post.
Also, for your enjoyment, a soliloquy from earlier this week:
I want more presents
like the nuts.com order I bought for myself but it isn’t coming until Wednesday
we don’t have anybody picking up packages for us while we’re gone :(
so I am glad the nuts.com order is taking less time than usual
I feel like I have become an IM advertisement for nuts.come except they’re not paying me!
nuts.com, the only place I know you can get dried dragonfruit
nuts.com, now with free holiday tin!
nuts.com home of delicious indian snackfood
nuts.com, where you can try bizarre superfoods you’ve never heard of
also they have these fruit gummies that are made out of actual fruit, they’re really really good but also just as bad for you as regular gummies, so DH wanted to get some, but I was like, DH, the first ingredient is sugar. Like, they take actual strawberries and shoot them up with the stuff fruit gummies are made out of. They’re like frankenberries or zombieberries something like that unnatural [ed: embalmed mummy berries?], yet what gummy fruit wishes it could be. Also not as pretty as fruit-snacks because there’s no artificial coloring.
