They shot him in the back of the head.

The murderers claim they were such cowards that feared for their lives because an innocent unarmed man on the other side of the door was walking away from them that they had to murder him without warning or even checking to see if they had the right person.

I had somehow misremembered this as being in season seven, so wasn't emotionally braced for it, Picard's torture and interrogation being strongly reminiscent of my childhood interrogations, because it was the first thing I ever saw that got that it is fundamentally about getting the victim to agree to the lie, a that is how they break us. At the same time this episode was much of the impetus for the rewatch, as a quarter of a century late it still haunts me. This time I am thinking about how this trauma interacts with his earlier violation at the hands of the Borg. I had honestly forgotten how philosophical this is. I do appreciate the ethical discussion. The mind games are always the hardest to watch for me. Picard's defiance and cleverness speaks to me on the deepest level. When this first aired, this was not a thought I was capable of having, but now I am pleased that he voluntarily went for therapy at the end.

I know tax bills aren't as obviously threatening as the ACA repeal, but this is very dangerous in it's own way. It is a series of tax bills like this that have made conditions geometrically worse for working and middle class people since the time of Reagan. Like all Republican tax policy in my life time, this bill is designed to increase wealth inequality and harm people who work for their money rather than inherit it. This is yet another dramatic tax cut for the rich at the expense of everyone else that is expected to damage the economy the way all such tax cuts have done while shrinking tax revenues at a time when they are also planning to dramatically increase military spending so that they have an excuse to cut social services.

Please resist this with the same energy we resisted ACA Repeal.

If you have Republican Senators, or Democrats Joe Manchin, Heidi Heitkamp, and Joe Donnelly call, fax, or protest in person, asking them to stand against the bill with their Democratic colleagues.

Maybe this time they will let Vila weep! (My first ever convention was Star Trek/Blake 7, with Takei and Avon’s actor double billed, but Paul Darrow had a family emergency, so Vila’s actor came in his place which was just as good as it turned out).

Seriously, imagine how good this could be if they had, say the people who made BBC’s Class involved in rebooting Blake 7. Now is the time for a rag tag band of thieves and pirates turned freedom fighters to rise up against an Autocratic dystopia in space. Imagine it with modern effects and quality writing.

* Rejoice, for the Car emergency is ended! I anal retentively ordered a Blue Cab for an hour before the appointment for fear of the cab coming late. I foraged, as it's just around the corner from Honest Mechanic (Alignment and Brakes Plus Bellingham). In the event things ran about a half hour later than projected with my car, but this was all to the good as it turned out that when they opened it up, the alternator was not fried as previously believed, but chock full of belt frags that had essentially frozen it in place, and labor at Honest Mechanic is much cheaper than a new alternator. The result is that there was enough left over that between us, we had enough money for the whole electric bill, plus meds for both of us and cat food.

If anyone donated and would like a refund for the meds money and kibbles, the fundraiser having only been for car repair and electric, PM me and I'll see what I can do next month. Thank you again donators. The lights will stay on at the cat asylum.

I went to pharmacy, library, and to get kibbles and spend the last of this month's food stamps on magic apricot straws. The car battery is fully charged. Squirrel got off to his game on time. As I wrote this, I was full, the forage put away, and Tavy was in his room playing with his new pharmacy bag. All is well with the world.

* Today I gimped all the way to the book drop and back. It infuriates be how painful and exhausting this is, as the distance would have meant nothing to me before I got sick. Books needed to go, so I went. I lunged when I got home, and my legs went out from under me when I got up to start dinner, but it was a short fall and the sofa was there to catch me so I'm not hurt. I did use up most of the pain resistance and spoons, but I expected that. Litter really needs changing, but it will have to wait and all the things needing feeding got fed before I left as I knew it would be bad.

We scored a car appointment for Monday, but Squirrel is bleeding money on ubers to work until then, and I am trapped here. The library will carry until then with what I dropped today.

Thanks to a kind donation, we will have enough cash by Monday to fix the battery wiring assuming nothing is dramatically more wrong than expected. I'm still down about 70.00 on bills, plus we need cat food and toilet paper, but we will survive the month, I think, assuming no more emergencies happen. I'll still need to catch up somehow, and we still need front tires before the rains come for sure, but given this car is just old enough to drink, these small things going wrong is understandable.

* I also voted today. Yes, it is July and no one is thinking about voting, but my state has a lot of primaries. I know, I know, it's an off year and no one is thinking about voting right now, and the only races on the ballet were Port and Council-at-Large. Not glamorous, I know, but important. It's in these little local elections republicans kick our asses because they vote in every single one. We NEED to vote in every single one. Every single primary. (In my state it's open primaries, with top two going on to the general. This means that you can get two Republicans in November or two Democrats, or a Democrat and a Green or Libertarian. Primary turn out can determine if it's a lose/lose election or a win/win. People of Washington? Let's always aim for the Win/Win). Every single race even if's it's just for dog catcher. Every single General election. Yes even in an off year.

Vote early if you can, because it's better to find out you've been summarily disenfranchised by some bullshit Republican algorithm that decides there can only be one registered Jane Smith or Maria Sanchez in the entire country and therefore all of them are voting illegally early. The earlier you find out, the more time you have to fight to get your citizen's rights back from the Autocrats. Voting in primaries does that too. Better to find out in July and have time to get it sorted for November.

If you have a chance to vote? Do it. Use it or lose it.

* I was reading Dusk or Dark or Dawn or Day by @Seanan McGuire today and Tavy the Tiny Terror got really excited about the book for some reason and was aggressively sniffing and cuddling and head rubbing it for about 75 pages, before lightly licking my ear on Important Cat Business.

They have yet another ACA Repeal/Trumpcare attempt in process.

They are hoping we will give up and go away. We can't afford to. People will literally die so they can win the tax cut for the .1% this is in aid of.

* Today I watched a C-SPAN recording of a Folger lecture on Shakespeare. I'll be mulling the lecture for a while, but given the location and subject matter, I couldn't help thinking of my time as a Philosophy monk. Winter's Tale, in particular always reminds me of the "Tutor" (Johnnie for Prof.) I had when we were studying it. Though I went to a number of productions in the Folgers Theater it is particularly Begger's Opera and As You Like It I associate with it, for a variety of reasons, as well as the Boy from Bethesda, who was my lover Spring of freshman year. All of this is a massive web of narrative, associations, and sense memory for me, too big and complex to get my head around at once.

I remembered so clearly the banister in front of the place we generally sat, and when they pulled back to show the audience, it was of the far side, not quite my angle, but very familiar. They did eventually pan the other way, and I could see my old seating section. The stage is so much smaller than I remember, though I was full grown when I sat in that room. In my head, the set for the Beggar's Opera seems massive and complex and exciting. I have read the play since, though never seen it. The starkness of the set behind the speaker and the smallness of the stage compared to my memory of it is such a strange thing when my scale and the design of the side seating is so spot on exact with my mental image.

Brains are weird.

* Snerk. Dick Cavett asked Micheal Caine about how he "lost his innocence." Michael Caine winged the question right back at him and leaned hard. Good for him. It was rude when he asked Betty Davis about losing her virginity too.

(Look, I will tell bits of the story when asked, but I also have no shame at all and I still obscure certain details even though no way does anyone I know know this guy, as the story does not reflect well on anyone involved. It's not funny or entertaining, so it rarely comes up. There is a difference between things one chooses to say in the context of friends discussing first times and aggressively questioning a stranger on National Television.)

In other news, wow, this interview is sexist and creepy on both sides.

* Dick Cavett Observation: The ones I've seen before are all from earlier in his career ending in maybe the beginning of the '80's. The thing I am noticing when they show an occasional interview from the '90's is how much more he talks. He did tell the occasional story in the old ones and there are the classic opening monologues most talk show hosts do still, but the focus was more on the subject. The little stories were short and mostly designed to introduce the guest, briefly prime the guest, set up a story the guest was likely to tell, or involved some past interaction with the guest. Most of his half of the conversations were things that were prone to keep the guest talking or steer towards new areas of interest. I'm noticing he's much longer winded in the later ones, more prone to ramble, things are more about him than they used to be, though he never descends to James Lipton levels of self indulgence as far as I've noticed. It's a subtle thing. Likely a slow shift from being primarily a particular sort of setting for a gem to being a full conversational partner.
