Update: Email to Ivanhoe Cambridge

to Nathalie Palladitcheff, Ivanhoe Cambridge

Hello, I am just learning that I believe your company manages the property in New York where Fox News is headquartered.
You perhaps are aware that Fox News has been criticized for maintaining a propaganda apparatus in support of the Republican party messaging.
I think they are doing harm to the American public by producing content that is putting all of us at greater risk to the Covid-19 pandemic. They routinely feature individuals who mock the proven protective measures of mask wearing and social distancing.
Today, as I write this, the US just experienced the worst day of Covid-19 outbreaks of the entire pandemic. I believe this situation has been made worse by the Trump administration and its enablers such as Fox News.
Knowingly allowing space to Fox News also discredits your organization.

I ask you to consider refusing service and space to Fox News, in hopes that a show of solidarity with the people against a known propaganda outlet might help get better information to us all.
Best regards.

Protest at SF Mission Police Station

I participated in a peaceful protest with thousands of people in the SF Mission. We stood in front of the police station. SF had not yet lifted the 8pm curfew. When 8pm came some of the protesters announced they were leaving peacefully. About a tenth of the protesters remained after curfew. I did not witness any violence. There was a moment when someone threw a bottle of water down from an upstairs window or rooftop of one of the buildings immediately north of the police station. A man in the crowd picked up the bottle while others urged protesters to remain peaceful. I stood at the steel barricade past curfew. I wore a black skate helmet and heavy gloves. A 23 year old woman spoke at length to the officers. She told them it was their fault we had to be out there. That she just wanted to be living her life in peace.

Bring them to Justice (update 6/4/2020)

Thank you, to the people of Oakland. In solidarity with the people of Minneapolis.

I received word yesterday that the four former police officers have all been charged for their roles in the death of George Floyd.

I was with you at a barricade last night (May 30th) in Oakland at 14th Street, just East of City Hall. After we complied with the police demand that we “move back”, in the street, the police THEN shot at us with a tear gas canister. We held our position and I pretty much wanted to rip the cops fucking head off at that point. But I kept my shit together. Thankfully, one of the protestors was able to cover the tear gas canister with some traffic cones and water.

I would like to express my thanks also to the people of Minneapolis.

The police failed you, by allowing an officer to violate his oath, by committing a public execution of George Floyd.

To add insult, rather than immediately arresting the offending officer, his employment was terminated, and reports indicate he is at a residential location surrounded by police officers. Reports are he is in custody today.

The other offending officers must be brought to justice.

The officers who were adjacent to him during the crime are complicit.

Those officers must also be brought to justice.

The precinct that houses the offending officers must be brought to justice.

No peace exists until the officers are brought to justice.

Cliffs Happen

We get quarterly reports from this investment advisor.

I notice the cliffs happen to coincide with significant life events.

Immediately after some of the most important events in my life, big cliffs happen.

The cliffs happen on average at 12 year intervals.

One indication a cliff is imminent: In architecture we start seeing projects being proposed that “don’t pencil out”.

Super tall buildings are an indication.

Another indication is the % of bad debt in a population.

Another is we start to see people in really important positions who clearly have no idea what they are doing…

I don’t like Mondays

The global daily Covid-19 death rate is basically flat, global new cases rate is still increasing. States must not reopen. Any state reopening is an enemy of the people. We have lost 345K humans and we are not yet halfway through this.

This is the Monday where we say thanks for all the dead people who out of desperation and manipulation died needlessly for corrupt governments. Thanks. But you can’t read this, because you are all dead. So it is really to control the living people.

Ode to 3 dead moths

Ode to three dead moths by David Curtis 2020

If you come back

If you live again

I hope your next existence

has more dignity

the three of you

I want the Universe

to provide another chance

for you

Than floating

in that urine

in this rest stop

during a pandemic
