Saving a Democracy - 2 years ago

Approximately 2,000 National Guard troops are currently posted in and around the Capitol Building, with more in surrounding areas, after a violent mob tried to occupy the Capitol Building on January 6th.

President-elect Joe Biden will take his oath of office on 20 January. The National Guard are providing security for members of Congress until then due to "very high threat level." The number will increase to about 20,000 by inauguration day.

    Can it get worse than a pandemic, record-breaking heat and a science-denying president? Yes, it can. All of that plus raging fires over big swathes of California, Oregon and Washington. If you don't know already, I live in southern Oregon. The closest fire to me is about 15 miles (24 km) north. The wind is currently blowing it toward the NW, but that changes, of course. There are so many fires all around that thick smoke is blanketing the entire region, making it highly undesireable to g…

I was reminded that I hadn't seen your photos for a while today. I saw a mention of Klamath Falls in a news item and thought I'd better see what cooking. I didn't expect angry capsicum though. :-) How are you? I've heard about your region being a bit hot.
