There was a time when all the rivers in NY were polluted. When every apartment building had a furnace where they burned all the garbage.#
I remember walking to school in second grade, scrubbed clean by my mother, with soot falling in my hair and on my clothes.#
But then we decided this was no way to live, and we cleaned up our act. We stopped dumping waste into the rivers and air.#
The point is when we decide to fix something we can.#

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! :-)
