The death of RBG adds a new dimension to the US election. Promptly, the Senators are drawing their lines. The GOP slim majority will become thinner as Collins and Murkowski see writing on the walls. Collins is already trailing in the polls. Murkowski publicly declared she would not vote for a GOP nominee for SCOTUS. Graham is in a close race in South Carolina. Another fight over SCOTUS could put the Ds in control of the Senate. RealClearPolitics shows the parties tied in sure and likely seats. RBG could shift that thinning margin. Women make up more than 50% of voters. Women in the suburbs may see this issue as vital to their interests. It remains to be seen whether Moscow Mitch can push a nominee through before the election or will the GOP run on a promise of doing so? When will 2020 end? Not for decades if the GOP succeed in appointing yet another justice.

My MissionMy observations and opinions about IT are based on 40 years of use in science and technology and lately, in education. I like IT that is fast, cost-effective and reliable. My first use of GNU/Linux in 2001 was so remarkably better than what I had been using, I feel it is important work to share GNU/Linux with the world. Now that I'm retired I still use GNU/Linux on every computer in my home except the smartphones which run Android/Linux.
Lately, I've been giving lots of thought to the world I inherited and which I will leave to my descendants. I'm planting grass, trees, flowers and vegetables in my large lot and I've ordered a Solo EV. I plan to charge my Solo by means of a tracking solar array. Life is good if you have a purpose. I do.
