It's even worse than it appears..

Henry James: “Three things in human life are important. The first is to be kind. The second is to be kind. And the third is to be kind.”#
Default is even more insane than Brexit, and that's hard to do!#
Just heard on NPR that there's nothing we can do about the default thing. Not so. Call your representative esp if they're Repub. Explain how valuable the US's reputation is and how if they continue obstructing you'll do everything in your power to vote them out next election.#
These days I write my tweets for Mastodon, Bluesky, Twitter and Facebook. I do this by hand. Open a tab for each and do a lot of copy/pasting. The tech industry by refusing to interop has turned me into software.#
  • Default will not be a moment as defined by the Treasury, it will be when the world decides the US as a bank isn't trustworthy.#
  • That will be a virus like Covid.#
  • A virus of the mind.#
  • The virus has a name -- it's called a "bank run."#
  • Not one bank, but all banks at once.#

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! :-)
