Glitch is one way to put it/to minimize it. I would say "probable #dementia," as #psychologist Dr. John Gartner calls it.

How low can you go? "Every one of the Supreme Courtโ€™s nine justices is well aware of the recusal statute that binds federal judges . . . Even then, before produced its own totally voluntary, never-say-never ethical guidelines in 2023, internal policy and external law required them to refrain from acting like thin-skinned partisan nuts, and to recuse themselves from relevant cases when they failed to adhere to this standard. This is a low bar to clear."

The goal of those MAGA allies is simple: to make it unimpeachably clear that their primary fealty is to Donald Trump over the rule of law. If we are going to treat this as a story about loyalty-signaling, letโ€™s frame the question this way: Loyalty to what, exactly? Not just loyalty to Trump. This episode - is better seen as a statement of ultimate fealty to Trump over and above our institutions, as a declaration that he is paramount and they are thoroughly dispensable.

Is it also illegal to say, "I have my reasons"? Has that free speech also been banned?

This is true. Also true is how hard it is to watch someone you love die with and of #dementia

@jztusk. Thank you. "Stop using words" is so right and smart. I wrote a book about my father's early-onset Alzheimer's and called it Finding the Right Words. I learned a lot of new words (neurological ones) and they were helpful. But after having finished learning those words and writing that book, I learned that words (my stock in trade) are vastly over-rated. Thank you again. ๐Ÿ’œ

How about all #media cover this example of what sure sounds like #aphasia? Those of who know people with #dementia know what this is.

@Rana. thank you for these kind words and I am very sorry we have this in common. My father died of early-onset Alzheimer's many years ago. Recovering from those horrors is the work of a lifetime. Take care of yourself and feel free to reach out. Sometimes sharing with a stranger is easier. . .

#Academia.edu emailed me this morning with this gem: "Cindy, have you coauthored a paper with Nathaniel Hawthorne? Specifying your co-authors will make your citation count more accurate. We will not display this information unless you tell us to."

No need -- I will display this information!

#Target, you're confusing a signal with noise. This is not how you deal with #fascists, #racists, and #transphobes: "The reaction is a signal for us to pause, adapt and learn so that our future approach to these moments balances celebration, inclusivity and broad-based appeal," Christina Hennington, Target's chief growth officer, said last summer."

Moving piece on love/mother : "Research on the sex-specific impact of father loss abounds in pediatric literature, as does sex-unspecified parental loss โ€” but finding useful research on the unique needs of female-sexed children and women drowning in mother loss takes the kind of work most laywomen shouldnโ€™t have to do when sobbing with grief."
