Drag and drop doesn't need a target. If you want an app to handle drag and drop, if it can do things other than edit files, just be willing to accept a drop anywhere in the window. When the user lets up, confirm that's what they intended to do. Prior art is Google's image search page. #
Re the NRA. Dick's Sporting Goods is no longer selling assault rifles. And won't sell guns to people under 21. This is a huge deal. We need more like this. But -- trying to get Roku to drop NRA TV, that's not only not useful, it's very very very bad. The First Amendment is super important, as is The Golden Rule.

Picket gun stores until they follow DSG's lead. That will save lives. Measure success for now as stopping sales of new weapons of war. #
