It’s funny that Amazon is giving up on walking out when Apple stores have had it for years.

This is some bullshit!,” Merrick Garland, presumably.

Our media will be our downfall. Part whocankeeptrack?

A lot of people (all smarter than me) are very perplexed by the Apple lawsuitt brought forth by the U.S. DOJ. I wonder if this office shutting down is the answer to this and many other confusing statements by members of Congress when it comes to technology.

A quick follow-up to a post I wrote about years ago: Joni Mitchell et al., return to Spotify. Ah, well.

We watched American Fiction last night. It was excellent. Jeffrey Wright was so damned good. 👍

💪💪💪 Good for these folks. I hope to see more unions in the tech and publishing space.

Kids today! Are so awesome!

I just finished reading The Stand by Stephen King. It was long, but good. Rating: 👍 📚

Jon Stewart coming back to The Daily Show once a week got me thinking. It would be great if there were 20 hosts and they each did one show a month. The Daily Show would always be fresh and all these awesome hosts/staff wouldn’t be burdened with coming up with so much of the same material. I know I’m making it easier than it really is, but more Sam Bee, Jon Stewart, Larry Wilmore, Wyatt Cenac, etc.

We do love our children so part 293845. So many of our elected leaders are monsters.

Some months ago (I guess about nine at this point), I, along with thousands of other brilliant people, backed a Kickstarter project called Shift Happens. Since then, we’ve taken a journey with the author (and even his editor, Glenn) about not only the work behind the book but the work behind its printing.

Yesterday, we all got two more updates from Marcin Wichary about the project’s status. Each update (and there have been dozens) feels put together with such care that the updates and newsletters were worth the cost, and the book is a bonus.

I hope to find more projects like this. Thanks, Marcin.

Uh oh.

Our media willl be our downfall, part sigh. Nice work by CJR.

Super gross that Apple still advertises here.

It’s also pretty terrible that reporters are stilll using this service to post about their work but, for now, I’d rather punch up to Apple.

Idiocracy is coming on fast.

We are led by the best and the brightest, aren’t we?

Right! Our media will be our downfall, Inquirer!

People: Can we get affordable EVs?
Toyota: Best we can do is a fake transmission.

How many GOPers are wearing their assault rifle pins still?

If you had asked me at any point in my life up until this week, “Would attempting to illegally invalidate a federal election result in prison time?” I would have said yes.

I would have been wrong. The answer is, mostly, bygones.

People: Can we have a single-payer healthcare system?
Government: Can’t afford it.
People: Fully funded schools?
Government: Can’t afford it.
People: More trains so people don’t have to own cars?
Government: Can’t afford it.
People: What can we afford?
Government: Best we can do is war.

The last few months I’ve made a concerted effort to do brain things like Wordle and crossword puzzles. Conclusion: I am sad.

America’s priorities are something else.
