Not much to say this morning. You read the recap. You saw the Final Thoughts. You know where I’m at. What you may not know is that before I wrote that recap, I wrote another one and then accidentally nuked the whole thing as I was embedding a Tweet in it thanks to a faulty track pad. Thanks, Toshiba.
Thanks again for kicking whole asses in the GAME THREAD last night. Almost 200 comments? That’s not that close to 99 at all.
EDIT - OK, I lied. Fuck Bell:
I do not want to hear a single word about Bell "supporting mental health" ever again. You wanna know what is bad for mental health? Firing people en masse during a pandemic.— Rachel Doerrie (@racheldoerrie) February 9, 2021
Especially after those dividends, wage subsidies and Q4 earnings.
