It's even worse than it appears.
I started a thread for people using Drummer with #
A longish podcast about the origins of blogging in the mid-90s and a lot more, and why it's time to return to the roots. We couldn't trust journalism then, and nothing has changed, and today the stakes are much higher. And there are reasons they don't tell the truth in journalism. It's the same reason no one got fired for buying IBM. #
Trump is the broken clock that's right twice a day. The people who are gushing about Powell are wrong. He owns the Iraq war. It was on his say-so that we accepted what Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld and Rice were saying. He was their credibility. #

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! :-)
