Back to that time when I brought the pale wonder, Ophelia Palantine, from Oregon to sunny Central Texas. She ended up blocking me on social media because I poked fun at the whole BLM madness of 2020. Apparently, not being racist isn't good enough for the woke crowd. You had to post your black square with reverence and say only the 'correct' things. The Ukrainian flag-as-avatar trend kinda reminds me of that now. I am mostly sure that we all detest war and the killing of innocent people, but I refuse to subscribe to a simple narrative of good vs. evil. That only seems to get world in more trouble. Complex issues are usually, hmmm ... complex. Go fig.
