Back when the forces of purity & decency were attacking pictures of nekkid women, we used to say, “If you think the human body is obscene, complain to the Manufacturer.” Pete Buttigieg says the same about his love life, and he’s right too. [CNN]

I now have a Galaxy Note 9 on my Sprint subscription. It’s very nice, but I doubt that it will turn me into the sort of person who likes to chat on the phone. Thanks for all the suggestions.

16 years ago George Dubya Bush told us that we had to invade Iraq because reasons. An alarming number of Very Serious People thought this was a peachy keen idea, but some Dirty F[ilthy] Hippies, such as me, realized that he was trying to run a shell game with a watermelon. (In Autism Acceptance Month, I recall that a woman who wrote a book about her autistic offspring said, “The boy who noticed that the emperor had no clothes was one of our kids,” but that was not a necessary condition for noticing.) Now that Dubya has forever lost his chance at Worst President Evar, some people are suggesting that we forget and go back to trusting the people who trusted him. Matt Taibbi says, “Let’s not.” [Rolling Stone]

Thanx to [personal profile] conuly

Suzette Haden Elgin (olev ha-sholem) said that many people are touch-dominant and relate to the world by making contact with it. My immediate reaction was that it would not be fun to work for such a person, especially if one is of a sex the boss is attracted to.

I have spent many years in a 12-step program in which hugging is mandatory. I didn’t like it at first, but thanks to much Remedial Hugging, I now do it competently.

Joe Biden appears to be touch-dominant. It is of course an order of magnitude different from our president’s pussy grabbing, but the culture is finally beginning to take personal space more seriously, even when the person violating it is a high-status white male who means well.

This strikes me as a sign that while Biden, Elizabeth Warren, and Bernie Sanders are great people who should keep doing what they’re doing indefinitely, I hope the Democratic presidential nominee is someone younger.
