Weekend Update 10/31/2020: Scarier than any Halloween costume

“These are the headlines... God, I wish they weren't!”

“These are the headlines… God, I wish they weren’t!”

I’d rather just be posting a bunch of Happy Halloween images, but here we are:

Biden Team Cancels Texas Event After Highway ‘Ambush’ by MAGA Cavalry – Dozens of pickup trucks, many with Trump flags, surrounded a Biden campaign bus as it traveled from San Antonio to Austin. The trump supporters, many heavily armed, outnumber police 50-to-1.

Very fine people, I’m sure. And so brave to confront a bus full of “libruhl snowflakes” like that…

Stanford study estimates that 18 crowded Trump rallies ultimately resulted in 30,000 coronarvius cases, 700 Deaths.

“Proud Boy” Charged In Polling Station Bomb Threat.

Woman accused of impersonating prosecutor, dropping criminal charges against herself.

Jerry Falwell Jr. Sues Liberty University: You Damaged My Reputation And The Lincoln Project Is Behind It All. I don’t know what to say about this. It’s there a point where the judge can say (looking at the mountain of news covered that came out over the course of years ranging from the two pool boys to the sketchy real estate deals, to his own posting of the questionable drunken picture on his own Instagram account), “You had no reputation left to destroy”?

Republicans closely resemble autocratic parties in Hungary and Turkey – study – Swedish university finds ‘dramatic shift’ in GOP under Trump, shunning democratic norms and encouraging violence.

I’m not sure it’s so much a shift, as simply stopping hard on the accelerator in the direct the party steered toward first under Nixon, but what do I know? I’ve just spent the last 50 years reading the news and debating Republican supporters in real time…

I can’t deal with any more of this depressing news. Let’s move on.

It’s Halloween! Here’s a spooky song:

Ryan Adams – Gimme Something Good (with an assist from Elvira, Mistress of the Dark):

I've loved reading for as long as I can remember. I write fantasy, science fiction, mystery, and nonfiction. For more than 20 years I edited and published an anthropomorphic sci-fi/space opera literary fanzine. I attend and work on the staff for several anthropormorphics, anime, and science fiction conventions. I live near Seattle with my wonderful husband, still completely amazed that he puts up with me at all.
