October is Blindness Awareness Month, AMA! Fun facts to start:

93% of people with sight loss have some level of sight, even if it's just telling the difference between light and dark.

Braille users are pretty rare (I've heard different percentages but all in single digits) so don't think slapping Braille on everything means you're done with accessibility.

(It's explicitly inspired by Hometown and very nicely links to my Patreon on their github, too.)

But hey, it looks like my monitor will the delivered on the 10th! Yay!

A friend of mine was telling me a couple of travesti candidates got elected. _Those_ are some good news!
