It's even worse than it appears.
After many attempts, I'm now rolling on The Expanse. In the middle of season 2, I more or less understand who the characters are and the plot. I don't know why it took so many tries to get it. I am sure that Julie Mao and Miller are melding into some kind of incredible love monster whose body is the planet of Venus. I also think their meeting was the sexiest thing I've seen on TV ever. #
Demo of a new feature on my blog. Spoilers are now hidden behind a placeholder. This is how it works. Warning there's a spoiler in this video about how spoilers work. Not kidding. If you haven't seen The Expanse and think you might, you should avert your eyes at the right moment in this video. Sorry! #
Democrats have one goal. Trump out in a landslide. All the insiders talk about turnout, but you know what, that's up to us, the voters. I think that's the message of tonight. If he wins, Biden has been drafted to be our representative. We should organize ourselves so we can't be ignored after the election. #
Idea for Mike Bloomberg. Hire some smart ex-CDC people and have them solve the testing problem in the US. Commit say $1 billion to the effort.#
Wonder if they're testing people at the White House. What are the chances that it's a hot spot for transmission? Lots of people coming and going.#
What sense does it make to stimulate an economy that will be crippled by lack of parts and workers? The economy will shrink, no way to avoid that. Maybe we'll need stimulus later, once (hopefully) people are back at work. #
When the WSJ gets an important story in the public interest down comes the paywall. But when do they publish a story that isn't in the public interest? So news is socialist too. 💥#
So many forbidden topics on Twitter, might lead you to believe no one is offended by your ideas (assuming you're politically correct) but voting is private which provides a channel for anger and resentment. Might be a good idea to factor that in.#
Thoughts and prayers to friends in Nashville after the deadly tornado that struck downtown in the middle of the night. #
Come on people now smile on your brother, everybody get together try to love one another. #
  • Something really weird happened in a dream last night.#
  • My father apologized for something. #
  • He's been dead since 2009.#
  • He never apologized for anything to anyone as far as I recall, certainly not to me. He said and did plenty he should have apologized for.#
  • I think in a weird way this is my subconscious telling me that it's ready to forgive him. #
  • In the dream I felt so safe and secure in the moment, I said genuinely, don't worry about it, we can fix the problem right now. Then we went to the post office and I mailed a package to someone.#

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! :-)
