So it turns out my government has been lying to me again.
travel.state.gov says:

"14. Will REAL ID still be enforced at airports later this year?

No. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) extended the deadline for REAL ID by one year until October 1, 2021. Beginning in October 2021, DHS will require customers to use a REAL ID to fly domestically. The most common REAL ID is a state-issued driver's license. A U.S. passport book and passport card are two of many alternative documents that customers can use to fly domestically if they do not have a state-issued REAL ID. For more information on REAL ID, go to DHS’ website."

Indiana has been assuring me I can't fly without real ID after October, and they won't issue me real ID. OK, they have updated their page to now say 2021 instead of 2020. They do this once a year for years; it's a big game of chicken. Shouldn't hold up in court once challenged.

i'm researching online right now about what would be involved in getting a series 7 stockbroker's license for my ego wall, and thought this was interesting enough to pass along.

Of the 20 cities, the police forces of Chicago and Los Angeles are at the top end of the table in terms of the degree to which they comply with human rights laws. At the bottom is Indianapolis, in the state of Indiana whose governor between 2013 and 2017 was Mike Pence, Donald Trump’s vice president.
The Indianapolis PD ranks so badly because it breaches international standards on numerous counts. It allows the use of lethal force to prevent a felony being carried out – without specifying what kind of felony.
Its rules carry no mention of the need for force to be proportional to the danger. It also makes no requirement on police officers to apply an escalating set of measures before they reach the point of lethal force – Indianapolis only talks about issuing a “verbal warning, if feasible”.

Let's assume all of that is true, just for the sake of argument. We've still never had a president as awful as Trump during our lifetimes.
