But What About the Library Cats??

Welcome to Check Your Shelf. There’s been another police shooting, and this one has taken me aback because I grew up very close to Kenosha, Wisconsin, and now it’s on the national news. And there are too many news articles about property damage and supposed rioters, and not enough articles questioning why the police (and their white male supporters with assault rifles) are given free rein to act as judge, jury, and executioner on the streets. It just keeps going.

On the Riot

Take a breath and take care of yourselves, folks. If you need something cute, here are photos of Houdini exploring our bathroom. I’ll see you all next week.
