I'm installing #manjaro with #xfce on a retired Barracuda spam filter tonight... Very excited about this budget setup. The device was super cheap and so were parts.

Neo fash in chief rewriting history. Again. That guy has a massive reach as a “journalist” and “intellectual” (yes, really)
Overall, Americans took 9/11 pretty calmly. Notably, there wasn't a mass outbreak of anti-Muslim sentiment and violence, which could all too easily have happened. And while GW Bush was a terrible president, to his credit he tried to calm prejudice, not feed it 2/
