Back on the Habitica horse (giant wolf, in my case) but giving myself very easy passes. Wrangled five Wiscon program items? Sure, check off "volunteer". But I signed on to a Challenge to do the 10 actions in 100 days from https://www.womensmarch.com/100/

I like [profile] sidearea's essay on what the Women's March accomplished. Nowadays, if you say "women" when you mean "white women", you are asking to be called out. But that is not the end of the world! You can respond in a good way, and make wonderful things happen!

I saw him perform a lot, but he moved to Austin in the 1990s, and now (I discover) he's still performing while running a motel in Sturgeon Bay (where many ships were built for WW2).

http://video.wpt.org/video/2352168800 is a recent 30 minutes concert from Wisconsin Public Radio.

That video has captions, so you can even understand his lyrics.
