    Someone has to implement a WORDLE test for Vice President
    They can't use the same word twice or three times

    6 touching stories about Mister Rogers' impact on fans (today.com)

    After a 5-year-old blind girl wrote a letter to Rogers asking him to tell her when he fed his fish, Rogers began narrating the feeding of his goldfish in every episode.

    The fish story appears in "Dear Mister Rogers, Does it Ever Rain in Your Neighborhood?" a collection of letters received by Rogers from children throughout his career, and his replies. The book reads:

    "One girl and her family wrote to tell us there was a special reason why she wanted me to talk about feeding the fish each day."

    "Dear Mister Rogers, Please say when you are feeding your fish, because I worry about them. I can’t see if you are feeding them, so please say you are feeding them out loud. Katie, age 5."

    "(Father’s note: Katie is blind, and she does cry if you don’t say that you have fed the fish.)"

    Why is the press focusing on Trump stealing secret nuclear documents and hiding them at mar a Lago and selling them to foreign actors when we still have the Kamala Harris wired earphones controversy to discuss?

    How many football fans do you know that buy the jersey's of the backup quarterback?? The VP just plays a support role. I don't know why this is so hard for the media to understand. There's really nothing to talk about with Kamala... and that's fine. Let Brandon do his thing, and help be a partner and spend time getting votes in the Senate.

    The stuff the VP is working on isn't controversial, and sexy but is still important stuff like this:

    https://www.space.com/vp-kamala-harris-commercial-space-industry

    If she's able to work on future issues like this, and lays the groundwork for international coalitions to be built to get something like this done in the coming years, that's great. It's the non-sexy but important stuff VP's are supposed to be doing. If they are in the news, it's usually not a good thing.

    in the wake of unprecedented legislative successes in the first 2 years of the Biden presidency, as well as the steady decline in gas prices and the killing of the Al Queda leader, haters avoid talking about POTUS.
    so, they've opted to move the goalpost targeting the VPOTUS


    btw, "popularity vanishes" suggests that she was popular at one time. everyone not living in a cave knows that Harris has never been popular

    That's touching, but aren't you sort of comparing these grown non-binary people to little kids? This story is sweet because she is a little girl. If she was a grown woman making the same request, our reaction would be very different.

    I'm not understanding your point... can you explain again?

    The post there is simply about Mr. Roger narrating for the visually impaired. Harris was doing that when she was narrating for her audience who were visually impaired.

    Sorry, I missed that part of the story. I thought you were comparing that to her declaring her pronouns.

    She was declaring her pronouns to the visually impaired sitting in front of her. It's appropriate for her audience.

    It's common to do that in a work setting now. Maybe people are seething because it is?

    yea, I’m seeing more of it at my workplace but it’s not that common

    really who give a damn either way… let’s people express themselves in whatever way they want to

    Kamala might be the most awkward dork VP since HW Bush.

    Thinly veiled misogyny. Which is the GOP jam.

    Like I sincerely don't get it especially reading the Twitter comments. They seem so confused about the point she's making. To me it's simple. America needs to be the leaders in investing in new technology (I'm assuming energy systems is the premise) because that's how nations corner a market and become market leaders and that's how they generate leverage. You don't want China to be market leaders in energy storage systems in the future right? It's a very obvious non confusing message where I'm lost where the confusion comes from?

    @Os Trigonum can you explain the confusion?

    She basically said nothing. It was completely useless gibberish, in a tone that was meant to sound important. You're welcome.
