It’s behind a paywall and I’m not paying good money to read the whole thing. Essentially though Ingrid Jacques is a dime store Laura Ingraham who has relentlessly mocked the virus as well as any mask and vaccine mandates and those who support them. Now though she is shocked, SHOCKED I TELL YOU, that people could be so callous to mock those who died from their own COVID ignorance.
Probably should tag this as rant rather than article, but it’s both! I don’t know why I sometimes read the “Care and Feeding” section of Slate, I guess it’s entertaining and occasionally my bff (who is a mom) and I will share Slate articles and laugh, discuss or even wonder if it’s real at times.
But the response to the 3rd letter writer today who has changed her mind about wanting children and is now childfree I guess, is so insulting. Seriously, fuck this columnist:
“ From my vantage point, it seems as if you used your mental illness as an excuse to get out of your marriage. If it was important to you, I think you would have done more to try to save it. You’ve also automatically assumed the worst-case outcome for having kids, when it’s possible you’d surprise yourself by becoming a great mom. I’m so thankful that I didn’t listen to the voices in my head that said I wouldn’t be a good dad, because I couldn’t imagine my life without my children. I feel sad that you won’t allow yourself the same opportunity to try.”

This idea has Arkansas moving away from the SEC (as well as 3 other teams), to make 7 conferences and 1 Group of 5 to make up 8 teams, with only the conference champion making it to the playoff.
I personally do not care about the SEC as I think rooting for an entire conference is stupid. Then again I am old enough to remember the SWC days and I would die before rooting for Texas just because we shared the same conference.
Just as a reminder, before the season started their reasoning was that the Warriors aren't good enough to compete as is, so they must trade away their young studs for a veteran star now.
Now they are saying, "Look how good the Warriors are. They are competing. That's why they must trade away their young studs for a veteran star now."
F*ck those idiots. The Warriors are a top-5 team right now, and within two months they are going to get not one, but TWO STARTERS back from injuries. Who says that they need anyone else?
The Warriors have a 15-man deep bench already, so there's no need there. Not only that, but those young guys should have picked up enough during this long season to be able to contribute by the time the playoffs start.
And then there's the fact that the Warriors have an incredibly good team chemistry. Something that could get disrupted by bringing in a big ego.
For Eff's sake. The Warriors front office seems to be making all the right moves. So have some faith in the program, until proven otherwise.
