Idea for a cartoon based on the Oberlin affair: A shoplifter who has just been arrested, shown in profile, with the shape of several stolen objects clearly protruding under his coat as he's yelling, "Profiling!!"

There was a multi-vehicle collision on Route 2 in Randolph, NH, something like 20 miles from Lancaster. There were 7 deaths and 3 injuries requiring hospitalization. I don't know if any PorcFest people were involved or affected.
Trump's threat of millions of arrests may be a gross exaggeration, but the ICE is planning massive raids. Be extra careful if strangers ask you questions about your neighbors. https://www.nytimes.com/2019/06/18/us/politics/trump-immigration-deportations.html

Liberdon is a Mastodon instance for libertarians, ancaps, anarchists, voluntaryists, agorists, etc to sound off without fear of reprisal from jack or zuck. It was created in the wake of the Great Twitter Cullings of 2018, when a number of prominent libertarian accounts were suspended or banned.
