Thoughts and prayers #1

  1. Today in neoliberalism: Knife crime is rising for the fourth straight year in Britain — there were 43K last year. Analysts claim austerity cuts to social services, like youth centers and interventions for children who are expelled from school, are the main reason behind this.

  2. I am quite fearful of the day I finish Adventure Land - what would I have to hold on to in this life?

  3. Pre-ramen excitement is a real thing!

  4. Tears of joy: Reaching 1400+ points in Rapid on lichess

  5. A profitable corporation that paid zero dollars in federal taxes last year is not a good neighbor for a city with underfunded public schools and a transit system in dire need of fixing. Jacobin
