It Was Close: Wall Street Journal, Wednesday, 13 January 2021

With rioters ransacking the Capitol, Rep. Jim Himes hunkered in the visitors’ gallery overlooking the House chamber. He watched colleagues below rush to exit the floor, heard the reverberation of a single shot from somewhere close and waited his turn to evacuate.

A trio of Capitol police officers with guns drawn then led Mr. Himes and about two dozen colleagues — the last lawmakers in the chamber — across the long gallery, maneuvering through narrow rows of seats and over brass handrails. The officers were agitated and shouting at one another, he said, because they didn’t know which of the doors leading to the hallway to pick.

“They had no idea which door didn’t have a mob behind it,” he said.

Despite this, 197 GOP House members voted against impeachment. Unbelievable.

So sick of the WordPress Block System, what a huge waste of time, not everyone wants to fiddle with layout, some people just want to type. Self had to write this entire post twice because those damn blocks kept floating to places on her screen where she didn’t want them to be, and dealing with blocks so unstable is worse than — trying to walk on the surface of the moon?

Stay safe, dear blog readers. Stay safe.
