hubs within the Feminist Blogs network. For stories from particular places, groups,

I mean, read the linked article and tell me if you feel happy and eager to vote for the Dems in November as a result. Or do you think, instead, “Vomit, vomit, vomit. These politicians are all the same and all have their tongues stuck deep into the billionaires’ anuses”?
This small, ugly and horribly located house in Vancouver sold for $643,000, which is $43,000 MORE than the asking price. This is considered the cheapest house in Vancouver and people were in a bidding war to buy it.
And this is their backyard:
The wooden planks are the extent of the backyard. Outside the deck, there is a public alley filled with trash cans.
On my recent visit to Montreal, I noticed that there was too much money in the city for the situation to be healthy. The word “bubble” was coming to mind every two minutes. Now I’m seeing that it isn’t just Quebec. Other Canadian provinces have lost all sense of what money is worth.
Tomorrow we are having the inspectors visit The Hedgehogs. As you probably realize, The Hedgehogs’ price is nowhere near what was paid for this ugly little tool shed in Vancouver. The Hedgehogs are cheap even for our area, and they have real nature, not a fake wooden-plank backyard. Prepare, people, if the inspections tell us all is good, I will persecute you with photos.
we expect Content Notes as a courtesy to our readers for problematic content in linked posts and/or their comment threads (a habit of posting only triggering/disparaging links may annoy the Giraffe (you really don’t want to annoy the Giraffe))
extended discussion of self-promotion links on this thread is counter-productive for the intended signal-boosting - the idea is for the promoted sites to get more traffic. If it’s a side-discussion that would be off-topic/unwelcome/distressing on the other site, take it to #spillover after leaving a note on this thread redirecting others there.
I just observed in a musical competition on Russian TV a popular singer in his twenties react with a tantrum and a bout of weeping to the kindest, gentlest, most respectful criticism of his performance by the judges.
“But I tried so hard!” he bawled and ran off the stage.
“Was it something I said?” fussed a 60-year-old judge. “Why is he so upset? I need to go apologize.”
My students are like that, too. Not all but quite a few. And if diplomacy today isn’t working, imagine it being placed in the hands of ultra-sensitive, perennially aggrieved and generationally wounded Millenials.
I just discovered that somebody called Piketty wrote a huge volume that is being universally lauded as the biggest recent achievement in political economy and which proves that
“there is no inherent drive in markets toward income equality.”
This tells me I totally need to patent my breakthrough discovery that now is April.
