This falls more into the "slightly annoying" category, but there's nowhere else to put it. I have a friend I've posted about in the COVID thread. Let's call him "Mark." Before the pandemic, Mark and I would watch a sporting event at a sports bar once a month. I've enjoyed that time, although he is not someone I would hang out in other contexts because we have little in common, even though he has suggested it. Mark enjoys talking on the phone with me for up to half an hour at a time. As an introvert, I dislike talking on the phone and particularly abhor taking phone calls at random times. Mark has called me several times this week and I have let the call go to voicemail (which he doesn't leave). I feel bad about this. I'm going to have to answer the phone at some point just to be polite even though I would rather not.
Oh boohoohoo Mister-I-Have-Friends.

Sorry to hear you can't watch the 1952 Kentucky derby because of rabbit ear issues.

I know it was sometimes in the 70s I was at a wedding reception in a hotel in downtown San Jose. I was already well into the mind altering substances but the open bar was slow setting up so I went down stairs to the lobby bar for a drink. It so happened that as I ordered my scotch I noticed on the tv they were just getting set to run the Kentucky Derby. Lucky me I'm jumping up and down cheering on my favorite horse. After the finish I noticed everyone in the bar was just sitting as though oblivious to this historic event. The bartender handed me my drink and I asked " wassup nobody into the Derby?" He said " Well it was better the first three time we watched it"

Just don't be born black. Then you are fine.

The good news is the Texas supreme court is looking at her appeal which is a good sign that they have something to say about this.

Knowing Texas they want to give her a longer sentence. But maybe there will be a good outcome.

I would never count on the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals to do the right thing.
