  •  I can't ever recall seeing a mistake from you, (4+ / 0-)

    Ruby.
    My problem is, I'll preview my post and read what I intended to write rather than what I actually wrote.
    I'll the read the darn thing 2 or 3 times after I have written it and not see the glaring error. And then! then someone responds and in writing my reply I see, o no! "persona no grata?! What's that? lol.

    •  LOL!!! I make them, but not quite as (3+ / 0-)

      glaringly stupid as this was. Three times!!! And, a man's name that is sacred to me. Oh lord.  

      I am a copyeditor. I am supposed to know how to write, spell and type. Obviously, I don't.

      For you, my sistah, the beauty in what you have to say will always overcome any little ole' typing error you might make.

        Wish I'd stayed here and just read comments, RR.
        Just wandered off to Kos's diary today and saw that there is another move afoot (what is it now? Round 10?) to have our very own national treasure banned.
        Seems like she is the leader of black folks or somethin' and they think that if they manage to get rid of her, then the rest of us will be that much easier to defeat.
        Thanks to Yas, Ono, Edwards and AnnetteK for taking on the pack.
        Those guys just never give up, do they?
        Now I am off to bed in a cross mood.
        Wish I had seen this coordinated attack earlier.

          comment about that diary and somehow I lost it. I hit something and it disappeared, which is probably for the best as I care about you and don't want you subjected to me in a rage. Summed up: they are relentlessly obtuse, mean, vindictive, repetitive and boring and I agree that Ono, Yas and Annette have the patience of saints.  

          Sweet dreams, my friend.❤

            some sleep, ruby.

            Don't think any of us have slept right in the last week or so and we need to be taking care of ourselves.

            As far as what happened in Kos's diary goes, there's nothing else to say in there.

            For those who care to see, the nasty game being played is obvious - same as it ever was, with a few added twists and turns.

            I find it all rather pathetic and sad.

            So let's all take the time to count the small blessings of the day. Think we all need too.

                With you on the lack of sleep going around. The last week or so has been profoundly upsetting and sad.

                What happened in Kos's diary and elsewhere just continued that.

                I'll never understand why simple kindness is so difficult for some people. And I'll never understand why assuming the worse and cruelty badly disguised as snark have somehow become "proof" of higher awareness and progressive values.

                The blind ego in that is astounding.

                Anyway, here's to better days for everyone.
