  • My mother was born in 1932 and died in 2018. #
  • She did a lot of good in her life. #
  • She got a PhD at age 50 after raising two kids. #
  • She was active in political causes, from school integration, to getting buses to stop running their engines while parked at the Main Street bus depot, to planting trees in the neighborhood we grew up in. #
  • She spoke English like a native even though she was born in Prague.#
  • She was my mother and I loved her and I still to this day want her love. #
  • She did the best she could. #
  • Mom with cat, knitting#

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! :-)
