“But the range of issues dilutes the power of abortion rights lobbying and outside spending, experts told OpenSecrets, as top-spending abortion rights groups like Planned Parenthood and EMILY’s List are not singularly focused in the way many anti-abortion rights groups are.” https://www.opensecrets.org/news/2022/07/abortion-rights-groups-consistently-spent-more-on-lobbying-and-political-contributions-than-their-counterparts-so-what-happened/

"rich and mysterious 2018 collaboration with Alexander Hacke of Einstürzende Neubauten...

Anyone else having problems setting up TigerVNC on Fedora? https://docs.fedoraproject.org/en-US/fedora/latest/system-administrators-guide/infrastructure-services/TigerVNC/
I've been to actual movie theaters three times in the last week. 2 in the Megaplex (Dr Strange and Jurassic World) and 1 at the art house (Crimes of the Future). I wish the megaplex would use at least some of those screens for regularly showing films like Cronenberg's. At the very least they are doing some one-night onlys of classic films. The Thing and Studio Ghibli movies, for example.
