took a photo of the lunar eclipse. astrophotography is my passion

i got an email from Ed Gainey asking for money, and realized he's been the mayor of Pittsburgh for 4 months and i haven't had a single reason to think about the mayor that whole time. i'm glad Fuckface McSmokeGrenades is gone, here's to never thinking about the mayor again.
