LibreOffice 6.2.8 is available, the last release of the 6.2 family
"As on impeachment, Trump cannot spin his way out of a self-made disaster on Syria, cannot distract the media and cannot control Congress’s reaction. When deprived of scapegoats and the ability to distract the media, Trump melts down. He cannot acknowledge fault nor ignorance nor gullibility. Hence, like a toddler, he pitches a fit. One wonders what he will do when the House actually votes on impeachment."

Happy 9th Anniversary, LibreOffice

Don't confuse evil with incompetence.
Evil always has all the right words to say. Incompetence makes brash and indefensible statements. Evil uses deception; incompetence uses mismanagement. Evil marginalizes its critics, incompetence marginalizes its allies.
Incompetence should be removed from positions of responsibility - gently and respectfully. And we must always remember that it is when we begin to turn on each other that the real evil wins.
