I'm 31 years older and I'd be happy to see the Dept of Homeland Security gone.
@matthewseiji Indeed. Writer, do something.
'Climate despair' is making people give up on life.
Retweeted by Brett Douville @rmattson @HazelMonforton It's not that I like saying these things, it's that I generally can't stop myself. @HazelMonforton I heard they suck. @nickfolkman Saw it at the Nantucket Film Festival and totally agree -- well worth seeing!

@locust9 I loved your performance in Ghost Story. @suellentrop Always a feud between those too. (Would I be taking it too far to call it a "beef?" I probably would.) @suellentrop Ah, yes, the two best known cuisines in America, Iowa BBQ and Colorado BBQ.... @HazelMonforton Hazel Monforton: a woman so powerful even her naps have origin stories. @Imp314 Aw, thanks man, hope you are well.
@ParkerMolloy His columns are masturbatory but hurt everybody, so maybe it'll be its own counter-argument. @notquitereal Like a "cat," a "hat" will chase a red dot around on the wall.
