Notes and various bits and pieces, reverse chronological order:
So I’m finally rebooting this book after months of inactivity. Turns out I needed time, sleep, and some personal space to do this kind of work — and those are precisely the things I haven’t had have since my daughter showed up and we got booted out of our place in Los Angeles and went on the road. Now that we’re a bit settled in San Francisco and getting some help from grandma, I think I can start to write again and get deep into the this thing. So keep a look out for an update in the next week or so.
Since this book is only gonna grow and grow and get more chaotic, I figure it needs a permanent table of contents. So this is what this page is gonna to be — that, and a place where I can keep some of more disorganized notes and thoughts and earlier writings on the topic of weaponized immigrants. So bookmark it for future reading.
Have a great New Year’s Eve. See you in 2022.
