Though Masthead has been up a few days, I'm declaring tomorrow its beta launch day and sending out an announcement to the tech press, especially outlets that have covered Mastodon.

Incredibly, Mitch McConnell went to the Senate floor and blamed *Democrats* for the mess in NC-09 because they don't support voter ID laws.

Despite the fact that they wouldn't have done *anything* to prevent the Republicans from cheating.

Giving this new thing a try. Just a test, for now.
