Medieval diseases are spreading across California’s homeless population:

Los Angeles recently experienced an outbreak of typhus—a disease spread by infected fleas on rats and other animals—in downtown streets. Officials briefly closed part of City Hall after reporting that rodents had invaded the building.

Prevention of these diseases is largely related to sanitation, rather than vaccines (there is a vaccine called BCG that prevents tuberculosis, but it’s not typically used in the US), so it’s not directly related to anti-vax concerns, but it is alarming none-the-less.

"We are told that cars are about freedom of choice. But every aspect of this assault on our lives is assisted by state planning and subsidy. Roads are built to accommodate projected traffic, which then grows to fill the new capacity. Streets are modelled to maximise the flow of cars. Pedestrians and cyclists are squeezed by planners into narrow and often dangerous spaces"

Hi @jpl@gnu.aspisdata.com, for some reason I am unable to follow you from my Mastodon instance but it's great to reconnect with you at

Quincy, WA is a weird city. On the one hand it’s a tiny farming town of 7000 people. On the other hand it’s got some of the most massive data infrastructure anywhere, and between that and cheap hydro power they’ve had to place a moratorium on bitcoin miners coming to town.
