    It's ludicrous that our main motivator is the comfort of the shareholder, or stakeholder, or whatever they're calling them these days.

    Very odd. I have no issues. Try googling the exact headline. That might help

    Some items I am after are hard to come by right now, allegedly because of production and shipping difficulties due to covid:

    - telescopes
    - astrophotography sensors
    - advanced camera lenses that contain semiconductor chips
    - high resolution laptop displays

    The biggest day-to-day shortages here are at our local food markets. Due to covid issues with their shipping companies, food delivery trucks are not arriving on as regular a basis, and tend to have orders underfilled. In combination with our State ferry system running poorly (~1/2 the sailings this week were cancelled with near-zero notice) which further complicates transport of supplies, the markets' shelves are looking pretty bare, and the hardware store is quite low on goods.

    We may have to postpone a substantial felony trial next week because the ferry system may make it impossible to get the jurors to/from the courthouse.

    I finally decided to splurge on a couple of LL Bean tshirts since I usually buy used. Just got an email that they are backordered until late December. I canceled yhe order.

    I was hungry. And we were out of pork rinds.

    I think it would be great if manufacturing came back to the US. Personally I would much rather work on an assembly line in a free to breathe state than in a customer facing position for an employer who mandates their staff wear masks.

    You could move to South Dakota and work in a meat packing plant. They are super pro covid in that state and that type of work environment.

    Not on keeping with my vegetarianism, but thank you anyways. Fun fact - I was actually conceived in South Dakota.

    May plagues and famine and supply chain disruptions afflict the heathenish red tribe!
