Apparently this is a thing. And I'm just... surprised, but also surprised that I'm surprised?

Don't know what this says about the US, but it by God says something...

Micro SF/F stories by O Westin

There is another here entwined with us /
Another girl who'll learn to hate before /
He learns to love, to break our curse and thus /
Release my life, for far too long endured

She'll hate and run and die and he will rage /
And I will feel another petal gone /
The last I have, and oh! I feel my age /
This Rose will die, and leave the Beast alone.

My family is selling used K-2 stuff for . Can't afford to give it away free, or we would. Details on craigslist.

We're in PA near Allentown. Willing to try shipping stuff, by health issues will make that challenging so would rather they go to someone local-ish.

Any mastonauts have good reading resources on and ?

I found a book that piqued my interest but I’d rather see if anyone else has a rabbit hole they enjoyed going down before I make my own.

Random --
Who don't we call important rabbis by their names?

I was just explaining the influence of the Tzitz Eliezer, and it occurred to me that I have no idea what the man's name actually is. Ditto the Rambam. Ditto many others.

Does anyone know why we do this/where this custom started?

Child Protective Services, Help needed

Boston CPS has taken kids from my fam. They can't afford a private lawyer, but don't trust the court assigned lawyers or CPS. If anyone knows a lawyer or legal service in MA that would help, please let me know! MA CPS is notorious for their bullshit and my fam is very vulnerable.
