Well. Here's what I posted on Twitter just now:

--------------

This 2016 is defective and I would like to return it, please. I believe the six-month warranty is still in effect. Er, right?

--------------------

That being said, Folderol is taking a week off and will be back after July 4th, provided the world does not implode or explode or anything exciting like that. Stay safe, and see you soon.

A sit-in today at the U.S. Congress, a vote for/against Brexit today in the UK. We live in interesting times, don't we?

Happy Solstice! (Many thanks to Cassandra for the link.)

 I am still not really sure how much I want to interact with the outside world, so links may be on the skimpy side for a while. Today, we feature modern ghost towns – one in China, one in Uganda. I think they should start calling these Ozymandius cities (Ozymandia?).

Links from others this Friday. Thanks, everyone, and here’s hoping for some better days to come this year.

From Cassandra: The connection between human sacrifice and social inequality. 

From Julie: They’re auctioning off the Hammer Horror tomb from Lust of the Vampire! 

Have a safe and spiffy weekend, everyone. See you next week.
