I'm on the board of directors for my state democratic party - got elected to it as part of a "slate" of progressive reformers trying to fix/rebuild the party from the inside.

I was at my son's FIRST robotics competition so fuck that guy. I'm checked out of politics at this point. I've been broken. It's pointless.

It's weird that I evolved from a morning person to a night person. I thought you were supposed to become more of a morning person the older you got, but I seem to have done just the opposite. Instead of the early hours being my most productive, I can no longer get out of my own way. And I have a hard time making myself stop in the evening. I used to be the other way around. Happened gradually over the course of 5-10 years maybe?
Would love to find a Firefox addon that always opened a specific site (in my case, my local newspaper to get around the "X articles per month" paywall) in Private Browsing mode, particularly when coming from outside the browser (in my case, clicking a link in my email client). Or I suppose I could just not be a cheapskate freeloader and pay for the content.
