If you're looking to adopt a cat The Cat Connection in Brighton has a bunch of kittens.
  • Absolutely! I have two cats and I think it's less work with two cats than if I had one. They keep each other company, they get exercise by playing, and they eat so little that it doesn't even matter. I have always gotten away with one litter box for two cats (17 years for the first pair). And I highly recommend getting a litter robot or something similar because it makes the litter box even easier to deal with.

  • Milky Way at Nauset Light
  • If I had to guess I would say that he was doing a lot of work in the compositing. The night sky exposure was probably mostly from a shot where the light was shining completely the opposite direction so is not to overexpose the sky. That is just a guess though. It is from Mastodon so theoretically you can post a follow-up question to him.

  • Boston’s First LGBTQ Affordable Senior Community Opens
  • Yeah, the article is basically a press release from one of those sketchy real estate websites, but I thought that the topic was really important to get out. There aren't a lot of options for the aging lgbtq community. Hopefully it's not a pure AI hallucination, but either way I thought people needed to know about the subject.

  • This article says government subsidy for local news is always a bad idea. Do you agree?
  • Thank you, I felt the premise of the article was too black and white. I think independent journalism is critical to a functioning society as is government. Therefore, government needs to encourage independent journalism somehow. It's easy to find examples of state sponsored media that is obviously propaganda, but there has to be an middle ground. If public funded journalism was the ideal balancer, for example, maybe government could have a system of helping news outlets setup public funding infrastructure? I just hate the idea of saying "government bad".

  • How would ranked choice voting work in Boston? Here's a look
  • I think what is hard to explain is how you determine who wins. Most people understand that in "old school" voting the one with the most votes wins. With ranked choice, how does it handle multiple people with very different rankings. Its easy to say "the one that most people preferred" or "instant runoff" but explaining how that is calculated is not easy. I am very much for ranked choice, and I was devastated when it lost the vote, but it's biggest hurdle is comprehension, and that is something for FUD'lers to prey on.
