DW issues

When I backed up my LJ, DW unfortunately tried to import my entire LJ friendslist (which is good, in some ways -- but most of those people don't have DW accounts), and that's why I'm running into the "can't have more than 1000 accounts in your circles" error that prevents me from adding anyone new.

(Also, TBH, I'd be leery of switching to a service that tops out the number of friends you can add, bc I do have quite a few people on my LJ, and am happy to keep it that way -- some stuff just gets filtered a little more tightly, if necessary.)

Ugh, it's going to be *fun* trying to figure out which of those 982 "DW friends" listed actually even have DW accounts under the same name!

So, I'm about to do a mass unfriending and then start adding people back -- I've taken a screenshot of my few friends who I'd already added as DW accounts, so if you see yourself removed and re-added, that's why.

*rubs temples crankily*

Senator-Elect Kamala Harris asked her consituency for our priorities in the coming years. If you're a resident of California, you can fill out the survey here: http://www.kamalaharris.org/landing/e151209/

A friend shared his responses, and they were so well-thought-out I used them to frame my own.

As a member of a sexual minority, married to a disabled man, my first and most important priorities are as follows:

  1. Single-payer health care in this state, if not nationwide.
  2. Protections for the LGBTQ community in health care, housing, jobs, parental rights, and education.
  3. Protections for Muslims, Jews, and other religious minorities in freedom of worship and speech, housing, jobs, and education.
  4. Protections for all persons of color, regardless of immigration status, in freedom of speech and assembly, health care, housing, jobs, and education.

I realize this is a lot to ask for, particularly of a first-term senator. But if these issues aren't addressed, many people I love and care about - my husband, my family, my friends and colleagues - will be in grave danger.
