We're taking tomorrow off in recognition of Juneteenth.

As always when we take a day off, we may pop in if news breaks or if there's another reason to post. Otherwise, we'll see you on Thursday back at full tilt.

Juneteenth is a celebration of the ending of slavery, and without getting too political, I think we can all agree that that is a good thing.

Speaking of politics, since this is a fraught topic, please play nice in the comments. I will be monitoring -- I might even pop in tomorrow -- and banhammers and deletion buttons are ready.

We'll see you Thursday.

      Anal/Fake Bd2 = Loser with 15 year old Toyotas, claims this and that about driving Evoras and whatnot. Real Bd2, me = Brand new Kia Telluride, Hyundai Genesis setup to match a 911 GT3 and high paying data science job for the aforementioned Hyundai/Kia/Genesis which only comes with a level of education he can't even reach so really he's just jealous and trying to impersonate me all of the time.

    Compared to the issues we have in the U.S. that's minor.
