Coming Out of Left Field

Today's word ...

... is schadenfreude, which Merriam-Webster defines as "enjoyment obtained from the troubles of others".

Normally I try not to feel pleasure from things going badly for other people. However, when the other people are trying to carry out a harmful, bigoted, misogynist agenda that will benefit the rich and hurt the poor, women, Muslims, students, scientists, the planet, etc. ... then anything that gets in the way of that agenda, I'm good with -- and will certainly do my little bit for.

Speaking of which, writing a note to myself to pick up more postcard stamps. Between Texas trying to enact its own "bathroom" bill and a bill in Mass. to prohibit discrimination in state contracts, it's time to send out some more pro-equality messages.
