Justin Townes Earle...another remembrance

For those who don't know, Cumberland Heights is a very large addiction recovery facility located in the Nashville area. They are an incredible organization and we support their work. I hope that Justin's tragic passing provides a measure of light on the struggles of those in active addiction and in recovery. My heart still hurts over this...

Justin Townes Earle has died


Just heartbreaking...Hope you find peace Justin

Gave up my favorite sports message board today

I'm a huge sports fan. College football, NFL, MLB, NHL, NBA. I love the changing seasons and the sports they bring. During the pandemic, I have intentionally avoided going onto my favorite sports message board, mainly because boards like that are overpopulated with RW nutters.

This particular board was originally built for all things sports related to a university we support in the south, but the board offers message boards for the full spectrum of sports. I went there this morning before work and I was so appalled and disgusted by the vast majority of the posts that I deleted my account.

I'm used to the rw bent to many who follow sports, especially in the south, but these posts were so extreme I could no longer support the site with my membership. For example: people who are concerned about COVID-19 and college football are "spineless", "gaslighting America", "only promoting this to undermine Trump" over a virus that is "no worse than a sinus infection".

🤦🏻‍♂️...that wasn't just one post. It was post after post after post...for my own sanity I left. Makes me a bit sad because I do enjoy the sports banter but this is just too much. I refuse to tolerate this crap in an area of my life that I use to escape from the crap we're dealing with in this country.

There are over 6 million people in the state of TN

Only one sixth of that number voted in the primary this week, Republican and Democratic. We can and must do better. The turnout for the Democratic Primary was atrocious. We can change the course of this state if we get people out to vote. I truly believe that.
