Today is a continuation of our “Evacuation Special”, as our town and surrounding areas are still literally on fire. Today’s post will be notable for its lateness and weird format.
#1 – Assistance gratefully accepted.
Our co-director Veronica was on a writing assignment in Cuba with her husband earlier this week. She’s the one who put this website together and keeps it running, organizes all our resistance events and watches over me. All the hard jobs. While they were gone, the Thomas Fire destroyed her apartment building and literally everything she and her husband owned except for their car at the LAX parking lot and two carry-ons with warm-weather clothing.

Any assistance to help them get re-started would be gratefully accepted. https://www.gofundme.com/david-and-veronica-fire-fund
#2 – “I’ll take ‘Natural Disasters’ for $100, Alex!” – Keep up the pressure on the #TrumpTaxScam.
Fun new fact: The House Republican tax bill would eliminate deductions for personal losses from wildfires, earthquakes and other natural disasters. (If this were Jeopardy – “What are disasters that happen in California?”) Interestingly enough, it would keep the break for victims of the recent severe hurricanes (“What are disasters that happen mostly in red states?”).
