Society initially gave phones permission to interrupt because there was no way to do it different, other than having a secretary to screen calls. Now we have ways to confirm that the other party actually wants to talk now, so we should use them.

In the weeks after my last child was born, I didn't have parental leave because I was my own boss. Had an appointment with our midwife, whom we were lucky to get because they're in short supply (because of lack of funding from the system), bought groceries at an understocked store, and walked through a residential neighbourhood with no sidewalks to a playground clearly showing it's age. Our experiences vary in "communist Canada".

I don't like making "memes" because I always feel like someone else has come up with the idea already. But I haven't seen this one, so I had to do it.

Trying out a website that automatically deletes your tweets (to see if it’s any different that the one I already use for Twitter and Mastodon).

It doesn’t let you use the service if you’ve liked too many tweets from “prominent racists, misogynists, antisemites, homophobes, neo-Nazis, and other fascists” because apparently that means you are one.

@adam @Johncdvorak this is from a Catholic canon lawyer (i.e. trained in the interpretation of Church law) who now runs an independent Catholic news-analysis site with another lawyer.

A broader point is that the precision of language is very important for the Catholic Church. It's part of why Latin is used for a lot of official matters.

The priest should have known better, and I think root of the issue might be an English-as-a-2nd-language thing.
