Just think back to earlier in your life. There was no such thing as Facebook. Even before (gasp!) MySpace! Considering how coarse and demoralizing much of the discourse on Facebook is, I wouldn't characterize disconnecting from it as drastic. That's a peculiarly 21st century view. No offense, it's widely held.

Passed through Richland County today, home of a corrupt police force in the 80s-90s, not knowing that they nabbed Jakobowski until later. What a strange twist of fate for me...

I'm teasing about quiting FB as being drastic. But I'm to the point where I feel overwhelmed by current events combined with personal local events... Honestly wish I could be somewhere that feels normal right now.

Perhaps the WI 5th Congressional District is the Internet-optional utopia you seek? Though you'll probably need to go online to figure out where precisely its' gerrymandered boundaries are these days...

... just being near a small lake away from the chaos (IS & KDA) with actual fresh well-water/air, combined with cleaning up his yard this AM while he was hung over totally cheered me up.

There is much to be said for doing honest work, outside, on a nice day.
