Strange bedfellows

Tuesday. Today is National Seafood Bisque Day.

I can’t remember what I had for lunch yesterday but some people know what was on the menu 2700 years ago.

What’s going on with Rachael Rollins‘ US Attorney confirmation? The Bay State Banner indicates that some of its readers have written in to urge disapproval so as to keep her in her position as the DA, where she can have the most impact, a position the Banner disagrees with. Tom Cotton, of course, is still holding things up. Where it will go from here is unclear.

Apple‘s latest pro laptops take design cues from the past, adding ports and removing the touch bar. That’s what people wanted. Appropriately, the unveiling of the new models yesterday coincided with the 30 year anniversary of the introduction of the original Mac laptop, the Powerbook. It was an amazing machines in its time.

It’s crunch time for the 1571 state employees who haven’t been vaccinated. Commonwealth Magazine reports that the state police union is warning of staffing shortages if non-compliant troopers are fired. But, as they report, the Governor appears unconcerned. He doesn’t think staffing is a concern since only a small percentage of troopers haven’t been vaccinated and a new class is coming out of the academy next week. In other words, those unvaccinated troopers are expendable.

And since there’s a shortage of truckers, a California vocational school is trying to get more high school students behind the wheel of those heavy big rigs. What a great idea! Roads full of teenagers driving giant trucks.
