A women's movement grows in 'the most Trumpian place in America' (Note the road sign in the picture: Coal Miners' Memorial Roadway. Every time I hear inane bleating about how we need to bring back coal, I'm gonna point them to that picture. So many miners have died working for low pay in that shitty job that they get their own memorial road named after them, just like soldiers and AIDS victims.)

And she volunteered me to help out if they needed urgent, uh, help. Which... geez. I like our neighbors just fine, but my plate is full! SOOOOOOO full, and things are falling off.

So, yeah, this is a small street, and yet... my mother's right, there is a heck of a lot of cancer on our block, particularly among the people who have lived here a decade or more. Our neighbor on this side, our neighbor down the block, our neighbor down the block and across the street, her next door neighbor.... Or, at least, it seems like a lot, but I have no idea how to evaluate the numbers to see if it's probably just a statistical fluke after all. (If nothing else, most of the people who have lived here a decade or more are getting on in years. The older you get, the more likely you are to eventually develop cancer, right? I don't know of any children on our block with cancer, anyway, and I'm sure I would've heard about it if there were any.)

About three months (her guess), very friendly, but skinny. I was going to do a simple rescue and drop it with my neighbor who rehomes cats, but halfway through planning I realized I hadn't asked her yet. I like to hedge my bets, so if my neighbor, rather improbably, says no - is there anybody in the NYC area who would like a new friend? I'm sure either one of us would be willing to go out of our way to make this work if so.
