Here’s a guided meditation to help Trump accept he’s lost the election. Hello, President Trump. You’ve lost the election. Soon, you won’t be president anymore - and that’s okay.

Angela Merkel's message to Joe Biden

Angela Merkel, the German Chancellor who grew up behind the Iron Curtain, was quicker than most to perceive Donald Trump's threat to the kind of US global leadership that has traditionally underwritten European security. Had Hillary Clinton won in 2016, Merkel may well have opted not to run for a fourth term. But she would not retire with Trump in the White House, seeing him as a peril to the West, its common values and security architecture like NATO.

An anonymous reader shares an excerpt from Wired: On Monday morning, when representatives from the drug company Pfizer said that its Covid-19 vaccine appears to be more than 90 percent effective, stocks soared, White House officials rushed to (falsely) claim credit, and sighs of relief went up all around the internet. [...] The arrival of an effective vaccine to fight SARS-CoV-2 less than a year after the novel coronavirus emerged would smash every record ever set by vaccine makers. "Historic is...

Flugennock's Latest'n'Greatest: "MABA (Make America Brunch Again)"

From Mike Flugennock, DC's anarchist cartoonist - "MABA (Make America Brunch Again)" http://sinkers.org/stage/?p=3092 It's this kind of clueless queefage from rich-ass Hollywood knobs like Mark Hamill which perfectly illustrates the attitude of the French aristocracy and bourgeoisie just before the head-chopping started — at last, the Democrats are back in the White House; now we can stop pretending to care about the poor and the working class and go back to brunch again.

LA Convention Center, sidelined by the pandemic, now considered as a homeless shelter

The Los Angeles Convention Center, which ended up unused as an overflow medical center for COVID-19 patients, may now be converted into a homeless shelter, under a plan city officials are exploring.
