Synopsis:

The GAA Firehouse Was Rented In May 1971. Ingenuity On Mars Today.

We talked about this month being the 50th anniversary of the Gay Activists Alliance renting The Firehouse.

This month is also the 50th anniversary of the Gay Liberation Front imploding.

We talked about Ingenuity completing its flying tests on Mars.

We talked about the Colonial Pipeline Company and Ransomware-as-a-service.

Pickles of the North talked about going out to see friends after 14 months of lockdown.

We mentioned a stupid Congresscritter who either thinks he can gaslight the world or else he's delusional.
