  1. There now seem to be four women who have come forward about Kavanaugh. Ford, Ramirez, one going through Avenatti, and one who is talking to the authorities in Montgomery County, Maryland. It’s unusual for a week to start with a glimmer of hope during this administration (okay, it’s somewhat cancelled out by the chance that the rotting jack-o-lantern might just fire Rod Rosenstein, who has been protecting Mueller, but still… there may just be some hope). Noon on Monday in the Rockies, and this week is already shaping up to be absolutely NUTS. o-o

  2. Vanesa Campos’ death was horrible. She was initially misgendered in the French media too. This law clearly shows politicians (and the majority of the public) just don’t care about sex workers’ safety and well-being, it’s all about fucked up catholic morality ?
