"But there was nothing about the little, low-rambling, more or less identical homes of Northumberland Estates to interest or to haunt, no chance of loot that would be any more than the ordinary, waking-world kind the cops hauled you in for taking; no small immunities, no possibilities for hidden life or otherworldly presence; no trees, secret routes, shortcuts, culverts, thickets that could be made hollow in the middle – everything in the place was right out in the open, everything could be seen at a glance; and behind it, under it, around the corners of its houses and down the safe, gentle curves of its streets, you came back, you kept coming back, to nothing; nothing but the cheerless earth."
Thomas Pynchon, "The Secret Integration"

Daaaaaaamn.

Depressingly, gofundme refused to take action, and a few hours ago the Darren Wilson gofundme page reached $250 000, and closed donations. They have now moved to another gofundmepage to start again. In 2 hours at the new page they’ve reached about $30 000. The page states that all $250 000 will be going to Darren Wilson and his family.
Never forget, never forgive.

"Currently, I am a Storyteller with GoFundMe.com, the world’s most popular crowdfunding site. What is a Storyteller, you may ask? It’s part marketing, part media correspondent, part editor, part creative writer, and part… well, storyteller! It’s my job to tell our company’s story in the best way possible, whether it be through our product, or in the media. When I was a kid, I wanted to be J.K. Rowling, so I consider this the next best thing." 

Kelsea, GoFundMe’s Storyteller (and Professional Harpist)

The content of the [pro-Darren Wilson] campaign itself is not in violation of GoFundMe’s terms of service.  Much like Facebook and Twitter, GoFundMe is an open technology platform that allows for the exchange of ideas and opinions within the bounds of our terms of service.”

Kelsea, in a statement issued to the Guardian UK about GoFundMe’s decision to use its “open technology platform” so that open racists can exchange the “idea” of raising money to reward a police officer for murdering a child.

Great story!  You’re like the JK Rowling of White Supremacists.

— Virulent racists!

25 INCHES LONG!

And the work week comes to an end! We’re going to Peterborough to see friends, hang out with my cousin, and see the Constantines play this weekend. Kind of a rough week in several respects. Looking forward to the weekend, but also (especially $$$ wise) looking forward to having no out-of-town plans for next week.

Anaïs has another job thing (for the same position) this afternoon; these processes always seem to take a while and have many parts these days. If you wanted to spare a kind thought for her around 1pm today, she doesn’t need it (she is going to do great), but it would certainly be appreciated.

Here are some baby sloths.
