Technology is terrible and I hate it.
It finally came back negative yesterday.
Nine months into this pandemic and 250,000 dead, it is CRAZY that we do not have widespread, readily available rapid testing.
According to Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, Sen. Lindsey Graham approached him about throwing out all mail-in ballots in counties that had higher than average ballot signature mismatches. This is a request (almost certainly at President Trump’s behest) to violate the law by throwing out huge numbers of legally cast votes on an absurd premise. He might as well have asked Raffensperger to falsify the numbers. And in fact, I think that is what it amounts to. This comes out in a new interview with Raffensperger from The Washington Post.
To review the obvious, Graham is a United States Senator and the Chair of the Judiciary Committee. He’s also a lawyer. He’s the one charged with overseeing the Senate’s review of who should serve in the federal judiciary.
So far, it seems like he takes snippets of vintage music recordings, loops them, and layers a bunch of hiss, crackles, and distortion over them. That’s it.
And yet, the guy seems to have churned out tons of this stuff. I am generally not one to look down my nose at anyone’s art, and judging from the reviews and the YouTube comments, a lot of people seem to **really* like his work. I guess it’s just not for me me, or else I’m missing something.
The new William Basinski album, however, is very good.
