It causes me stress. I try to be zen, but it's just too much, too often.
Fuuuuuuck YOU.

I really have to try hard to recapture my Zen. People are terrible.

They had been doing this, but this ended a month or so ago due to the court challenges.

I last saw it... 5 days ago? They often hide in a school zone I pass through ever day. I like school zone enforcement... a lot.

The fucked one is the one I've seen more than once... a cop literally hides behind an I-75 underpass and clocks people after they pass him. Completely invisible.
Fuuuuuuck YOU.

Interesting. I had been told it was completely stopped.

I haven't seen him in a month or more, but he was as consistent as the sunrise.

I actually like the cop in the school zone. When you can't see him leaning against the tree, garbage speed like hell through there.

I take note of these people.

Want to guess the race of 95% of the ones I've seen?
Fuuuuuuck YOU.

I'm going with white, because any other assumption would make me racist.

That's the safe guess.

My data collection is non-publishable.
Fuuuuuuck YOU.

No, actual data has also been called racist...

That was supposed to say non-publishable. Autocorrect got me.

But I am damned curious why so many black people ignore school zone speed limits. Blinking lights and everything.

I've been out for a bit and will only be able to pop on for quick reads. My dad was hospitalized for pneumonia and congestive heart failure for a couple of weeks, and now I'm staying with him up the road and checking in when someone sits with him for a bit.

The IG report was devastating to the original Russia investigation. Carter Page is going to own a French Villa at tax payer expense. And he should.

Comey kept jumping on TV saying the report vindicated him. Horowitz said no one that touched this process is vindicated. The IG had at least one referral. Maybe two. I suspect that the evidence for some of the players' political bias will come from these guys that aren't going down alone for this.

Sorry to hear about your dad, Vince. Is it still at a point of being treatable?

So far it seems treatable. TO be honest, with the pneumonia and heart failure happening at the same time, they're not positive how much of the fluid their seeing is from which. He's recovering pretty well. Since I'm so close we're hoping around the end of the year he'll be able to be on his own with my coming up 2 or 3 times a day.

My sisters and I look back over how poorly he treated his body over the years and it's quite shocking he made it to 80 to be honest. He's been diabetic and eating anything and everything. He was up around 280 lbs prior to going into the hospital. He's at about 250 now, but wants to get to 220. He's surprisingly willing to do what he needs to do.

I think he was okay with the notion of dropping dead at any point. He really doesn't want a slow decline where me and my wife end up having to move in with him. (If I'd known I was going to live this long, I'd have taken better care of myself)

Thanks for the sympathies, guys.
