I currently have a bunch of thoughts and ideas churning about inside of my very shaggy skull. Eventually, some of them might be posted here, and some in the regular forum. It will just depend on how politically incorrect they are as to where they go. Some of them are actually game related, so might make the forum. Here they are.

One: Is the United States worth defending anymore, given that governors and mayors are ignoring the 1st Amendment with impunity, viewing the free exercise of religion something to be suppressed in the name of "public health", as if man was strictly a material creature, with no spiritual component. Right now, I am viewing the destruction of my health for the past 44 years as a great mistake.

Second: Ideas on Space: 1889, not so much for a campaign run by me, but as ideas for campaigns run by others. I might give some thought to running a campaign, or at least a game, something maybe at Gary Con, if that comes back. The convention schedule is getting shredded by the over-reaching lock down.

Three: The Illinois lockdown on infinitum. When Chicago opens up is anyone's guess, but given the mayor, and the power she has as long as there is an "emergency", I suspect that it will not be sometime in the fall. Then, if there is the slightest hint of more case, another indefinite lockdown. Oh, and lots and lots of the cemeteries voting, just like in the old days. Nothing like mail-in ballots for that.

Four: The so-called "media". I hate to think of what they will do if Trump wins again. Maybe they will actually leave the country this time, at which point I would be more than happy to pay for one-way tickets to Western China, so that they can discover what REAL concentration camps are like.

Five: Summer thoughts. I have checked with the group that I spend some time teaching for in the summer, but right now, they are awaiting some idea as to what the morbidly obese governor of Illinois decides. He has actually inserted into a bill a provision making it illegal to criticize him on social media. I suspect that the media will fall all over themselves licking his shoes. About the summer, I am giving thought to maybe working with the center again, depending on what they can do. One teacher and nine students per classroom is not going to cut it. I am giving thought to see if my church, assuming that it is ever granted permission to reopen, would be willing to let me rent some space, and teach a few classes on the Constitution of the United States, so that they kids can understand what rights are in the process of being taken away, and then some non-standard history. Like actually talk about the Protestant Reformation and why so many left England to come to the, then unknown, New World. The nastiness in the Southeastern U.S. during the War of 1812, and the Fort Mims massacre. Which political party fought to retain slavery, and assert states rights to nullify acts of the federal government. What the U.S. Navy did to the Royal Navy in the War of 1812, which no other navy, except the Dutch, ever did. Stuff like that. I will have to see.

And for those regular readers of this blog, feel free to make comments. I promise that I will not bite. I have yet to figure how to do that online.
