I *know* we all want an edit button but we have to accept that the danger of paradoxes is just too great and protecting the integrity of the spacetime continuum must come first, always
I wanted to speak about today’s Catholic School Board Meeting.
A meeting that lasted only 13 minutes and was eventually cancelled due to a disturbing exchange between myself and Laura Thibert, the Board Chair.

When people freak out over the Cybertruck like it’s some sort of next level innovation... we could be doing so much more as a country. People need to dream bigger.
Oh, look, I’m briefly on TV (on stage in the panel format)
