Are you still trying to get ahead while our civilization ends?#
Watching Adam Schiff on CNN yesterday, he tried to explain that this is not Democrats vs Republicans, that we all lose if we lose our democracy, and Jake Tapper was having none of it. Excuse me Mr. Schiff can you tell me about the horse race please?#
Journalism, get a grip, some things are not a horse race. If Trump wins, kiss our species goodbye. That includes you. #
Another example of horse race journalism. They say "black turnout" could make or break Democrats. I would change the headline to "Black turnout could make or break the human species." #
A contract for the web backed by Google and Facebook. What's next. Exxon fighting climate change? Please. This is a joke. They're strangling what's left of the web. The best way to help the web is to cancel Google and Facebook. #
Now would be a good time to re-watch Goodfellas for an idea of how the US government works.#

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! :-)
