I wrote my Senators in support of Net Neutrality yesterday and today. The Senate is scheduled to vote on restoring Net Neutrality rules tomorrow. Several Senators have not publicized their choice of vote. The vote is expected to be very, very close and will impact freedom of information on the 'net for years to come.

For more information, the Electronic Frontier Foundation is the go-to source.

The grocery store chain Publix has for supporting a Republican candidate Adam Putnam for Florida governor. They clarified that they did not financially support the NRA, but Putnam has tweeted that he's a [url=http://www.sun-sentinel.com/news/politics/fl-reg-adam-putnam-governor-forum-club-20180427-story.html]"proud NRA sellout".

This past weekend we got our groceries somewhere else. Normally we're at a Publix three times a week since they're also a convenient lunch option. It's going to be awkward for a bit while we figure out shopping at a new grocery store and what other easy lunch options we can do, but all well. I don't have Twitter so I may look for a phone number later to call Publix to let them know they've lost a decades-long customer.
