* A second Catagory 5 Hurricane is going to hit Barbuda, which is already leveled. They are trying to evacuate the whole island. I know we in the US are all about Irma right now, and for fuck's sake if you are in it's path listen to directions about evacuation vs. shelter in place, but a second hurricane in the leewards on top of the devastation.... I have no fucking words.

It's looking like there are a lot of scammers calling for donations. It sounds like the authorities in Antigua & Barbuda want people to go through the Red Cross right now, as what is needed is centralized relief through a legitimate charity.

* Today the sky is actually mostly blue. (More blue inland, fading to gray over the bay, but much improved. There was a pall of matte grey smoke over eveything still, making the sky look painted and flat. It is better for breathing than it was, but still not great.

We went swimming anyway, and the temperature was perfect for that, the cool of the lake the perfect antidote for the muggy heat. All this was a lot of driving. I am slightly more hopeful it is belts and not breaks due to the subtleties of how it drives. My hope is to take it in Monday and talk them into checking their work. Tires and wipers are likely to be 80ish and absolutel need doing this month and i am slowly bleeding money. I'm rather scared to check, but i will have to before monday. I suspect I won't be servicing the medical debt this month which will put me further behind, but at least the lights are staying on.

* In Charleston over the weekend a policemen hunted and murdered an unarmed black man, Walter L. Scott, and placed his taser next to the man to frame him. He then lied in the official report, claiming that somehow the dead man had taken it from him. his lawyer claims that he followed all official proceedures. This policeman insists that he is such a coward that he was "in fear for his life" presumably at the sight of an elderly unarmed man fleeing away from him appropriately in fear for his life. Luckily a heroic bystander caught the cold blooded murder and framing on camera and had the sense to release it to the family and media outlets instead of handing over original coverage to police who could then cover up the murder by reeditting or "losing" the evidence.

Unlike as is the usual procedure when police hunt and kill unarmed black men in this country, they are actually charging the policeman appropriately.

Walter L. Scott was murdered for being a black man in possession of a busted tail light.

Let us hope they actually bring it to trial and convict him.

A good place to start would be ending voter suppression. Just saying. Because no one in their right mind votes for a party committed to denying that person their basic citizen rights.

Apple, which recently had a quarter in which they made higher profits than any company even in the history of the world still claims they need to use slave instead of properly paid voluntary employees because somehow otherwise they wouldn't make a profit.

* Most of this post was written before bed last night. Tibicina, her gentleman, and I had a nice lunch at the tea salon and a visit at my new digs. Greenwick and I packed some odds and ends, brought those over, and assembled the patio shelving. There was pho for dinner and some shopping after. I'm pretty much done in. The movers come Friday afternoon, so tomorrow will be getting things ready for them instead of me trying to do it tonight. The outdoor shelving looks good and works the way I imagined, so we can bring over the rest of the planters and garden stuff Sundayish. (I did call the management company to pre-clear the storage shelves and they are a better fit with the rules than a lot of the things I see on other patios, but someone can always take exception and the rules could be changed to specifically exclude my shelving. One of the upstairs neighbors at minimum are jerks and they routinely through rotting garbage off their patio so it's strewn all over our walkway. Given what a dick maneuver it is to ambush us with mystery fluids and rotting vegetables I have zero expectation for civility in other matters. As there are multiple floors and I haven't caught them at it, I don't know which of them it is).
