Hi everybody. I am currently en route to my first Iowa caucus. Expect periodic updates throughout - from what I hear, these get kind of weird. The Prophet and I are here for Bernie, so this should be fun.
Hello my friends from the kinjaverse, how are you doing this fine quite sleepy evening? Welcome to the weekly Whitenoise, Hackerspace, Groupthink, Powder Room, Odeck, Tay, Oppo, Backtalk, and Clashtalk cross thread.
