    RIP Stan Lee.

    Never read a single comic in my life, but this guy's cultural relevance is legendary.

    Although it's hard to maintain an election with Brenda Snipes watching you.

    No fraud, but what a train wreck she is.

    Government administration all over this state has been a complete cluster since I arrived in the 90's. Combine this with an average iq in the population of about 85 (outside metropolitan areas), and one might begin to understand the immense undertaking that is election day. Mass is and has always been replete with excessive bureaucracy and red tape, but it's always been facilitated competently.

    There was a discussion here, if the spotlight were on us and the increased amount of ballots, etc.would we be in this mess? The answer is a resounding no, as OC and Los Angeles both have stellar records and so do other major metropolises. IT'S HER.

    Horrible air quality here. I've never seen it so bad for so long. I've taken to wearing a mask when I go outside. I feel like I'm in Linfen.

    Wearing a mask is smart. You appear to be really effected by the Camp fire, and us over here with the Woolsey, the smoke isn't blowing this way.

    Smoke-filled air poses health risk in San Francisco

    It has been more than a week of unhealthy, even hazardous, air quality in Northern California. The smoke has obscured the San Francisco skyline – almost 200 miles away from the Camp Fire. CBS San Francisco's Anne Makovec reports.

    3 midterms this week. I definitely failed one of them.

    My friend in Daly City said his school was only closed a day despite the air being so ash heavy.

    I heard there were more than a few instances of schools remaining open when others in their district or general area were already closed, and the students and parents needed to complain, then some closed at noon.

    There is a very high bar for closure by air quality, it's a value of 200 or above, and even riding a reading of just under 200 schools won't close unless outside direction steps in.
