Fugs & Pices, June 24, 2022
Another week, another Fags & Peace where I have to be like, “Terrible thing X happened, whatever you can do here to help, now I’m going to segregate the links about apple peel weirdly.” It’s a skill I didn’t want or didn’t want to acquire. So yes. Rowe vs. Wade turned upside down this morning and even though we knew it was happening, it was no less surreal or terrifying. And this week has already been catastrophic in terms of the Supreme Court ruling. Here is a list of abortion funds, if you can, via The Cut, which reads, “If you feel panicked and want to take action, all you can do is donate to an abortion fund: an on-ground organization that “These funds can help arrange and pay for abortion care for patients in need. These funds can help pay for travel and accommodation for patients who only have to travel hours to get health care.” I gave up in Arkansas because I have a family there. Unfortunately, I think this is just the beginning. You can still get an IUD or a diaphragm.
Do you, ah, need to buy yourself a treat? I round up some cute little things you might like.
I guess that’s a good thing: have you heard of Cost Plus Drugs, Mark Cuban’s website that sells prescription drugs at more-or-less prices? Check it out – my asthma medicine is just under $ 5 from Walgreen’s $ 170 per month – yes, five dollars – there. For this I need to get my PCP to write a new script – there doesn’t seem to be any way to transfer your prescription the way you can, say, right aid from CVS, I don’t think so? – But $ 165 per month, I’m going to do it.
In the Washington Post: We need legislation to protect election workers like ‘Lady Ruby’ Freeman. I don’t know if you saw the testimony of Mrs. Freeman and her daughter Shay Moss during this week’s batch Jan. 6 hearing, but the way Trump and his people have treated them is absolutely outrageous and unacceptable.

Impressive, Atlantic: Fashion has given up on people’s tastes: “Four years later, puff sleeves still have their boots firmly on the neck of the American apparel market. If you’ve been trying to buy any women’s clothing this year, you already know that sleeves are everywhere, in every size and price level, most of them have fallen out of the weirdness that compels the original and makes you look like a milkmaid. The most annoying way can be imagined. At a time when most fashion trends have become more fleeting and less universal due to constant product churning, some manage to achieve the opposite: a ubiquity that feels disconnected from perceived demand. “
