DC Kickball Registration Ends March 6, Sign Up NOW!

Wonkabout

If you are desperate and have no friends -- or, conversely, if you have a lot of friends and you want to round them all up on a weekly basis -- sign up with theDC Kickball league. The organization sets up teams to compete against each other once a week in various locations and occasionally throws parties and happy hours.


DC Kickball is totally legit, and by the looks of the website (which has a “Flip-Cup” tab in the menu bar and pictures of Happy Young People drinking), it looks like a good time.

“If you encounter anyone who isn’t into this, please tell them to chill out,” the website says, “It’s just kickball, people.”

The District registration for DC Kickball closes on Friday, March 6, so hurry and sign up if you haven’t already.

The following neighborhood registrations are still open: Adams Morgan, Mon/Wed evenings at Walter Pierce Park; Capital, Wed/Thurs at the Mall; Constitution, Sun at the Mall; District, Thurs at the Mall.

A guest post by "Knitsy McPurlson," which we suspect is not a real name.

Yr Wonkette is not the only website run by brilliant peoples unafraid to poke people with sharp, pointy sticks. Ravelry.com – a website for knitters, crocheters, and other folks interested in textiles and fiber arts – is poking people with knitting needles, which are very sharp indeed.

This past weekend, Ravelry.com's founders showed the world how easy it is to de-platform white nationalists and racists when they banned all "support of Donald Trump and his administration" from their website, concluding they "cannot provide a space that is inclusive of all and also allow support for open white supremacy." Seems like people smart enough to decode a knitting pattern are also smart enough to decode Trump's not-so-hidden message of racism and white nationalism.

One day, God willing, my grandchildren will click open their history textbooks and read about the Central American migrant internment camps. They'll learn about sick kids, locked in cages, kept hungry and dirty and cold for weeks on end, and they'll be horrified.

"Bubbie," they'll say, "how could this happen in America? How could there be toddlers sleeping on the ground without blankets, without soap or toothbrushes to clean themselves?"

"I don't know. I wish I had done more. I'm ashamed," I'll say. We will all have to answer for this atrocity. But some of us will have to answer more than others. Not just the archvillains like Stephen Miller and John Kelly, but the people who kept right on doing their jobs, even as those jobs morphed into defending concentration camps.
