And this for Joe Manchin being a asshole:
Democrats, Republicans & Independents across the country (and West Virginia) all know & agree that we must protect the vote for all Americans; stop billionaires from buying elections; and end gerrymandering where politicians choose their voters.

The company behind Tuesday's massive internet outage has apologized for making a costly mistake that knocked out websites, apps and online services across the world. https://t.co/hIXSzh0wCk

Per CNN earlier today:
Fastly supports news sites and apps like CNN, the Guardian, the New York Times and many others. It also provides content delivery for Twitch, Pinterest, HBO Max, Hulu, Reddit, Spotify (SPOT) and other services. The 49-minute outage Tuesday morning took down other major internet platforms and sites as well, including Amazon (AMZN), Target (CBDY), and the UK government website — Gov.uk. It affected dozens of countries across the Americas, Europe and Asia, as well as South Africa.
The culprit was a bad software update that Fastly (FSLY) applied May 12. The update introduced a bug that could be triggered by a customer configuring their service under specific circumstances — which happened Tuesday. Fastly said the bug caused 85% of its network to return errors.
Although Fastly was able to get around the bug within an hour, it continues to deploy a permanent fix across its network. The company also said it is reviewing its processes and practices to determine why the bug wasn’t detected when it was introduced last month, and it will figure out how to get its network up faster if something like Tuesday’s outage were to happen again.
Nick Rockwell, Fastly’s senior vice president of engineering and infrastructure: ‘“Even though there were specific conditions that triggered this outage, we should have anticipated it … We provide mission critical services, and we treat any action that can cause service issues with the utmost sensitivity and priority. We apologize to our customers and those who rely on them for the outage … This outage was broad and severe, and we’re truly sorry for the impact to our customers and everyone who relies on them,”‘
Anyway, we end with the dumb of the dumbest in Congress — which covers a lot of assholes:

Idiotic background via The Week:
During a House Natural Resources Hearing with the U.S. Forest Service and the Bureau of Land Management, Texas Rep. Louie Gohmert (R) asked, apparently earnestly, if there was anything the two government agencies could do to combat global warming by changing “the course of the moon’s orbit or the Earth’s orbit around the sun?”
He then stated that such an interstellar overhaul would obviously have “profound effects” on the Earth’s climate.
After a brief pause, the woman fielding Gohmert’s question said she’ll have to “follow up” with him on that.
Well, if there happens to be anything the Forest Service or BLM could do, Gohmert said he would “like to know.”
So, attacking the way-rational fear of rabbits:
As I’ve said, documentary evidence…
