01/09/21: "Slow the injection of truth. Insert the needle of truth into my vein, into my brain, slowly. First, hold the needle upright. Squeeze out any air.

Inject me slowly, or quickly watch me die." - [This little quote in the middle of a post I wrote about Confronting Truth turned out to be about the most controversial thing I wrote this whole year, mostly because of the very graphic picture of a hypodermic needle that accompanied it.] The rest of 2021 has been relatively smooth sailing since then:
