President Donald Trump has
tapped Dan Simmons — an opponent of renewable energy — to lead the
Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy, according to reports.
— formerly the vice president for policy at the conservative,
pro-fossil fuel Institute for Energy Research think tank — has yet to be
officially announced, according to the Washington Post.
But E&E News,
an outlet focusing on energy and the environment, is reporting that the
renewables critic will be the acting assistant secretary of the office
until the Senate confirms someone to the post.
would seem an odd choice to head the Department of Energy office tasked
with developing renewable energy, but his selection is in line with a
number of officials Trump has nominated to run agencies whose mission
they apparently oppose. Read more (5/2/17)
Remember when Andrew didn’t want anything to do with Higgins and just wanted him to leave, but then Higgins mentioned other kids being around Drake and Andrew asked how many, then clearly got upset and stormed off? Remember how Higgins even said “You wouldn’t care about the number unless there really was something there for me to find”?
Remember how Nicky and Dan watched this whole interaction and still thought Andrew was an emotionless monster who didn’t care about anyone but himself and keeping Aaron, Nicky, Kevin, and Neil around as human property?
And then even after Andrew left, Dan and Nicky just discussed how the Andrew and Higgins situation was turning into a problem, even though Nicky said Andrew would take care of it if it was? And they were still acting like Higgins was there because Andrew was a problem?
Like gee, I wonder why Andrew didn’t trust them and played along with the whole not having emotions thing with that kind of obliviousness out of them.
Summary: Dan starts to get love notes in his locker in the form of origami stars, so he gets the help of his best friend, Phil, to figure out who it is.

The day Dan opened his locker to a strange slip of paper folded into an origami star was one of the strangest moments of his life.
“What,” Dan said simply, giving the offending paper a strange look. He bent down and retrieved it, staring at it long and hard. It was thin, made with a flowery paper, and he could just make out words written in very small print on it. “What,” Dan said again.
With a small amount of struggle, Dan managed to unwrap the star, revealing the writing inside. The script was sloppy to the point where Dan thinks it was written with the wrong hand. Dan said “what” again and the word didn’t even sound like it was real anymore. It took him a few minutes to read what it said due to the scribble, but he eventually managed.
