Brilliant tweet. When journalists ask how Warren will pay for something she should say Mexico will pay for it. #
As a newbie in town, I have basic questions like where to shop for groceries, ride the bike, look at the stars, which airport to fly out of -- really basic stuff. I usually post the question in the private Facebook group for the town. I keep an outline of some, not all of the questions and the best advice, on this.how. It's for things that aren't blog posts, stories I want to come back to, edit, refine, add to. #
Did a little prototyping for the tweetsucker project I wrote about the other day, and noted that the Twitter API toolkit that I use is now marked as not maintained. It still works, but It seems this is something Twitter ought to maintain, or pay someone to maintain. Letting this fall out of sync with the actual API wouldn't be very good. #
I couldn't bring myself to watch the Knicks game last night with the Mavericks with their new star, and former Knick, Kristaps Porzingas, who for a few years was the embodiment of hope for the team. I was sure the Knicks would be blown away. What a surprise to wake up to find out the Knicks won. I don't think anyone was humiliated, but there's a sadness when you realize how great the team could be now if KP hadn't demanded a trade, had found a way to work with the Knicks. #
Not sure if this photo is real. It's supposed to be a 2008 picture of Rudy Giuliani, Donald Trump, Michael Bloomberg and Bill Clinton. The only thing that would make it better is if Jeffrey Epstein were photobombing. 💥#

You know those obnoxious sites that pop up dialogs when they think you're about to leave, asking you to subscribe to their email newsletter? Well that won't do for Scripting News readers who are a discerning lot, very loyal, but that wouldn't last long if I did rude stuff like that. So here I am at the bottom of the page quietly encouraging you to sign up for the nightly email. It's got everything from the previous day on Scripting, plus the contents of the linkblog and who knows what else we'll get in there. People really love it. I wish I had done it sooner. And every email has an unsub link so if you want to get out, you can, easily -- no questions asked, and no follow-ups. Go ahead and do it, you won't be sorry! :-)
