* I do not care about which politicians view porn. I assume most of them at one time or another. The only time I care is if it is child pornography or the person is say, showing it to children, or viewing it somewhere it's imposing on other people. (I had a job one summer in an electronics store where the salesmen were frequently group watching porn in the back and would yell if I had to interrupt them to come sell a TV or whatever, and i had to eat lunch in a breakroom with all those breasts and vaginas staring at me, all of which I resented. I would have given no fucks if their homes were plastered with porn magazines and if they were jerking off at home, but I felt I shouldn't have to deal with it in a work environment, and I also felt if I had to work, so should they, and I especially shouldn't get yelled at for trying to get one of them to serve customers for the things I wasn’t allowed to sell them. WTF did they want me to tell the family wanting a new TV? Perhaps, "Sorry, all the salesmen are jerking off right now, so you'll have to wait until somebody cums?" Unless you work somewhere selling porn or live sex shows or the like, I feel like you shouldn't be required to watch other people masturbate. So no porn on the library computers where everyone is involved whether they want to be or not or on the computer at the Middle School, or... you get the idea). That's not the case here as far as I can tell. I do not like the man in question and find his politics disgusting, but he hasn't done anything wrong and I strongly disapprove of sex shaming people over private, consensual acts. Whatever he might or might not have done while watching that video is none of my business. I do not care either way, and I resent having to hear about it, particularly from supposedly leftish type people who very likely have looked at porn themselves. It's gross and hypocritical. Odds are this is the last mention I'm going to make about this particular instance, unless it turns out he was making interns watch him jerk it or something. Then, I care, but not for this.

* I was really irritated with myself for being foggy, slow, and headachey today, but then I remembered, oh right, I didn't just use all the spoons by bedtime yesterday, I also spent three hours coughing in the wee hours (likely the pneumococcal vaccine), and my body is also still dealing with the influenza jab. Given the givens, I'm actually doing remarkably well. I did wake up with the lungs clearing, so I have hopes of getting past things in the usual week. Again, these are temporary physical conveniences and well worth it given the consequences of NOT doing it.

* What the world needs now is more Sam Vimes.

* I just caught two parts of the Richard Burton three (?) part Cavett interview that blew me away as a child, which lead to my life long interest in him and his work. It means so much more now, given how much more I know, about Wales, and mines, and class struggle, and his personal context. Charm stretched over fragility, humor over pain. Damn.
