My bag is mostly packed, I just need to eliminate a few t-shirts, since no doubt I’ll pick up a couple of t-shirts there.
That last post, about the Citizen app, came from a File 770 discussion. There is a “protest” scheduled for next Saturday, and already there have been fliers describing the invaders as Nazis, and an argument over whether Trump is, in fact, a Nazi is percolating on my Facebook, which is probably as good a reason as any to go on vacation.
Citizen is a phone app that picks up dispatch records for emergency responders like police and ambulance, while lighting up a dot on a map to give the location. It’s only available in New York and San Francisco, and San Jose (only 60 miles away) is considered a suburb of San Francisco by some. If it starts lighting up with notifications about ambulances or mass arrests, I’ll head in the other direction.
