no one leaves home unless
home is the mouth of a shark
you only run for the border
when you see the whole city running as well
your neighbors running faster than you
breath bloody in their throats

who kissed you dizzy behind the old tin factory
is holding a gun bigger than his body
you only leave home
when home won’t let you stay...
- Excerpt from "Home" by Warsan Shire, 2011
Remembering bad-ass radical journalist I. F. Stone (my son Isidore's namesake) who died 30 years ago this week.
"From the 1930s through the early 1970s, Stone was an indefatigable researcher and an uncompromising critic of political oligarchy, crony capitalism, racism, and American militarism. He challenged mainstream journalism’s conservative “he said/she said” approach to reporting and, in doing so, inspired several generations of investigative journalists to follow his example."

Checking out @SubwayTooter for Mastodon on Android and so far I love it. The UX is not pretty but that's the trade-off for letting me have more control over the experience, like making my own columns with my own colors, do stuff from alternate accounts, schedule toots, etc. it's really powerful!
The only thing so far that I can't do is toot to more than one account simultaneously.
