It's even worse than it appears.
Enes Kanter speaks. Please listen.#
A flight where everyone was watching the impeachment.#
How fucked is the United States? Let's find out! There should be hearings like this for years, covering the corruption of the Trumps. #
Very confused about Jimmy Wales' supposed Facebook/Twitter competitor, WT:Social. What is the monthly fee? And what is it behind the paywall? Tech journalism is basically nonexistent these days. It does not actually appear to be a competitor of Facebook/Twitter, more like Reddit.#
I'm glad that Carmelo Anthony is getting another chance. He was the face of the Knicks for many years. I was surprised to find that even though his attitude about himself and the team was the source of a lot of the Knicks' problems, after he was gone, I felt affection for him. I look forward to seeing him play for Portland and I hope the team and the fans give him a chance to get settled in. He's more than a player, he's part of the soul of the NBA. There's no doubt when he returns to the Garden with his new team, there will be a huge outpouring of affection for him. #
BTW, amazingly, the Knicks beat Kristaps and his new team again last night, this time in New York. Hard to believe.#
For the first time, I am able to communicate with my doctor via email. What an innovation. Why didn't we start doing this a long time ago? Oh well better late than never. #
  • If you watched Maddow last night, it would be hard to call the first day of testimony in the impeachment hearings a snoozefest. Here's the deal. Everything the president does not only benefits him personally but it also benefits Russia. All of it. #
  • So more than an impeachment, we are hearing a case study about how the Republican Party and the American president are servants of a foreign adversary. A truth most of us find hard to accept, I guess. But there's a lot more of this than has come to light. This is just the first that has been so microscopically exposed. Expect that when we peer into the Turkish invasion of Kurdistan, we will find another clusterfuck of your favorite country and mine. #
  • We need more than impeach and remove.#
  • We need an exorcism.#

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! :-)
