Welcome to the VOTS Sunday evening open thread. I’ve been on hiatus for the past three weeks while moving across the country and starting a new job. Three weeks ago I bid farewell to Texas, where I lived for just under a year, and began my journey back to my longtime home in the Pacific Northwest.
I’m still more or less behind on current events because I’ve spent every day of that time either traveling, working, unpacking, or crashing and burning – but this YouTube video did catch my attention this past week. It’s a bit lengthy, but well worth the time. In-depth analysis takes time, after all.
It’s a real shame we have to turn to sources like Al Jazeera for objective and in-depth analysis of our presidential candidates, but apparently that’s what we have to do. Heaven knows we’re not going to get it from the American media.
In other news, a certain Missouri Congressman appears to have been 'legitimately' dropped on his head when he was an infant;
The Mars rover continues to be, you know, totally awesome;
The Pacific Northwest continues to suffer through a terrible series of wildfires; and
Great Britain has really gone and done it now.
How was your week?
