80th Anniversary of the Battle of the Atlantic ending, Late Spring. Manhattan is Sinking!

We talked about R. Paul getting his second bivalent booster shot this past week. We noted that the Battle of the Atlantic ended 80 years ago, May 22, 1943, and we talked about how this relates to Pickles of the North's mother not eating butter. We talked about a new study that says that Manhattan is sinking at a rate of one to two millimeters a year, partly from the weight of the skyscrapers. We talked about what we see as First Amendment issues in two states. Montana is trying to ban TikTok in that state, they don't seem to be saying how, and Florida's anti~LGBT+∞ laws are forcing some Pride events to be cancelled this June. Some states are so hot about Second Amendment rights that they seem to have forgotten that there's a First Amendment.
