• CALLING ON HOME SEWERS TO HELP HEALTHCARE WORKERS FIGHTING COVID-19

    The lack of proper masks, gowns, and eyewear equipment is making it difficult for health workers to do their work fighting the novel coronavirus. In a recent New York Times article, medical workers said they were worried about how they can both fight the coronavirus without imperiling themselves, as well as their loved ones when they go back home.

    If you are a home sewer, please consider helping my joining Hickey Freman Technical Vice President Jeffery Diduch in his effort to produce and deliver homemade gowns and masks to medical professionals in the greater Rochester, New York Area. Read about how you can help here

I'm imagining the whole lot going about taking notes and making scathing aesthetic judgements. Were this the 19th century, I think they'd hae quizzing glasses in hand.



It sounds like fun actually.

Manton, do you want to go?

Judge Bork was a professor of mine in Law School-- I have to admit, while I was, and still am, utterly opposed to his moral and political stance on almost every conceivable issue, he was engaging, personable, funny, and well spoken.

Lunch with him?-- yes. Cruise? ...uh...nope.

It would be weird to be cruised by Bork. Or were you talking about lunching with Tom Cruise? What's the difference, really...

You paying?

You guys laugh, and I suppose it is sort of funny, but little non-profit mags like this -- left, right and center -- depend on these cruises for revenue.

Actually, we could go together. Show them how to dress for dinner.

Certainly, the prices seem fairly reasonable although I daresay the venuse is slightly cheesy for the magazine.

I would suggest taking up a collections in order to make this happen, but you don't seem like you need or would even accept such a thing.

Dinner with LabelKing and Manton or party at JLibourel's would be excellent events though.

This would be the next seminal SF meetup.

I was a little dissapointed to see it wasn't for the Criterion Collection as I had assumed at first, but I still think I'd enjoy it immensely.

I've actually been on cruises, and I can say this with absolute certainty: you would be appalled at the way people dress. I fear that you would jump overboard, and the weight of your watch, chain and fob would take you straight to the bottom.
