Re: 2020 Presidential Election: Joe Biden vs Whoever the Republicans Nominate

I had my first ever canvasser yesterday who was probably 18 at most. He asked me if I knew who Gary Gates was. I said yes and that I'm not voting for him. That was satisfying in a weird way.

Re: Swampers on the golf course

I played this last weekend and it was probably the most fun I've had on the course ever. Decent golf, not getting upset at the bad shots, beer, smoke, relatively low humidity, and, most importantly, good friends I haven't been able to hang out with in a long while.
