This week, Paulette D'auteuil of the International Leonard Peltier Defense Committee talk about the case of elderly indigenous #politicalprisoner held by the U.S., #LeonardPeltier. Paulette shares about his youth, activism, art and struggle.
And Sean Swain declares himself defacto U.S. President. Asks for your help and starts announcing his cabinet appointments!
I know this is just a joke but I also just have to say that it's not only America; the word was originally "erb" and didn't have an H at all.
Overcorrecting pedants added the H in the 1400s to make the English word look like the Latin word it derived from, but the H was silent for everyone until it changed in Britain in the 1800s (thus, after American English had diverged) as the result of more pedantry.

I often find myself rereading Bertrand Russell's letter to Mosley:
"Thank you for your letter and for your enclosures. I have given some thought to our recent correspondence. It is always difficult to decide on how to respond to people whose ethos is so alien and, in fact, repellent to one’s own. It is not that I take exception to the general points made by you but that every ounce of my energy has been devoted to an active opposition to cruel bigotry, compulsive violence, and the sadistic persecution which has characterised the philosophy and practice of fascism.
I feel obliged to say that the emotional universes we inhabit are so distinct, and in deepest ways opposed, that nothing fruitful or sincere could ever emerge from association between us.
I should like you to understand the intensity of this conviction on my part. It is not out of any attempt to be rude that I say this but because of all that I value in human experience and human achievement."

- Alias, a 3D-printed "parasite" that sits on top of your Amazon Echo or Google Home, feeding white noise into its mic until you say the wake word: http://bjoernkarmann.dk/project_alias
- The adminbook, a wonderfully ugly design for the ideal sysadmin notebook: https://m.habr.com/en/post/437912/
"Fascism does not threaten the bottom line of this settler-colonialist, white, hetero patriarchy, and anti-fascism does."
- William Goodenough of The Final Straw Radio, speaking on the different treatment of fascists and anti-fascists in the media
