Me and Mrs Sven made it to the Reagan Library to see Ben Shapiro yesterday. Big crowd for his lecture and book signing, but unfortunately the event was held in the Air Force One pavilion and the acoustics were awful -- hard to hear.

Happy Vernal Equinox Wednesday, Gerbil Nation!
Good morning, Fatwa, and Sven!

Sven -- glad you enjoyed your trip to the Reagan Library; sorry the acoustics were so bad.

Fatwa -- let’s hope the Jexodus is real, massive, and already begun.

Speaking of kids, great article on young IT professionals feeling old at age 30. A New Luxury Retreat Caters to Elderly Workers in Tech (Ages 30 and Up) https://www.nytimes.com/2019/03/04/technology/modern-elder-resort-silicon-valley-ageism.html EL PESCADERO, Mexico — At a luxury resort in Baja California Sur, everyone was recovering from a long day sharing how hard it felt to be getting older. Some of the participants walked pensively along the Pacific Coast at sunset. Others read from the resort bookshelf, choosing from sections labeled: “What can death teach me about life?” and “What are the unexpected pleasures of aging?” The next day, the group would… Read more »

I wonder if any of those “old-timers” had enough self-awareness to recall the ageism that they, themselves, had propagated?

A friend’s company -- a fairly large international corporation -- came out in favor of Pelosi’s Equality Act that adds gender identity and such to the list of protected classes that cannot be discriminated against per the Civil Rights Act. They posted their position on the company’s bulletin board and invited comments from employees. All comments include the commenter’s name -- nothing is anonymous. So 90% of the comments so far are praising the company and saying how wonderful it is -- a small number have voiced religious and commonsense objections to the Act -- from what my friend said,… Read more »

Maybe they’re just trying to identify the group that does not have the common sense to avoid putting their name to a controversial comment.

I know, Paddy, I know. I hate to think that voicing a respectful disagreement gets you on a list, but in today’s environment…
