The Linux / KDE file dialog never opens up to the directory I want it to, and often it opens up to ~/Desktop, which I never want it to. I store almost nothing on the desktop, because the useful windows cover it up and anyway I always use the command line for accessing my meticulously-organized hierarchical file structure.

But I do have one file on the desktop, an image file called Lesbians.jpg:

File selection dialog box listing the
contents of /home/mjd/Desktop, which contains only one file, named
'Lesbians.jpg'

This file startles me every time the dialog pops up. “What the hell is that doing there?”

Then I remember what it is, and I smile. Sometimes I stop and take time to look at it:

Two elderly women with white
hair, both smiling.  One is seated in a wheelchair, holding up an
official-looking certificate.  The other has her arms raises in
triumph.  A third woman stands beside them, smiling.

These are Phyllis Siegel (standing with arms raised) and Connie Kopelov (seated), the first two women to be legally married in New York State.

HA HA HA TAKE THAT, LOSERS.
