Our ISP is dealing with some connectivity issues in the neighborhood of PVF HQ.
I happened to run into one of ISP’s techs, and he told me some of the issues they encountered over the last few weeks have been related to Dorian, which sideswiped our area–the strong winds blew moisture into some of their equipment, but it’s taken time for the moisture to seep into the equipment deeply enough to do any damage.

Writing at the Las Vegas Sun, Volker Franke marvels at our loss of compassion. A snippet:
Gone are the days of compassionate conservatism. “America first” finds a ready breeding ground in this “me first” mentality. It is finally time to catch up for those left behind by social progress made in the name of equality. After all, they too are better than others, better than those abroad and better than those from abroad. The new aMEricaFIRST echoes that sentiment, segregates American society and separates us from friends and allies around the world.
In the last half-century, “Compassionate conservatism” has been nothing but a slogan. There is no there there.
Gordon Weil reminds us to consider campaign promises in the light of political reality and not to take too seriously the “who’s ahead this week” horse race coverage of politics encouraged by polls, pundits, and speculators, especially this far out.
Be polite to your neighbors.
A young boy was injured Friday at a South Adams Street (Tallahasee, Fla.–ed.) apartment complex after a bullet accidentally fired from an upstairs bedroom punched through the ceiling and shattered the tile floor below.
A piece of the tile struck the victim, who witnesses identified as a young boy. He was hospitalized but has since been released.
