28 February 12020 is Peace Memorial Day in Taiwan, Day of Andalucia in Spain, and People’s Sovereignty Day in Benin. (Thank you Time and Date for bailing me out on this one!) As far as I know it is still Linus Pauling Day here in Oregon. And I guess we can all rest easy now knowing that Mike Pence is in charge of meeting the coronavirus challenge here in the United States. His is a record that inspires—well, not confidence, exactly, but some emotion. Loathing, maybe. Or laughter. God, I’m bored. And hungry—it’s the end of the month and the refrigerator is not inspiring. I think I have some instant soup somewhere. Fuck this shit—I’m going to look for something to eat.
