It's even worse than it appears..
You say you want Biden to step down. You've been heard. This is the President of the United States. If you don't respect the man at least respect the office. #
Congrats to Threads on a good first year. Looks like I signed in on opening day, July 5, 2023. They have done a good job of slipping into the spot previously occupied exclusively by Twitter.#
Threads gives you a virtual ticket stub for when you join, nice touch.#
Threads: "The reason people are finally talking about Project 2025 is because an actress used her platform to bring attention to it when the media failed to."#
This year I'm thinking how we can boot up a source of news that has the balance we deserve. Now that the Supreme Court is no longer keeping up any pretense of respecting the Constitution, and journalism is either colluding, or preparing for their meeting with a military tribunal in March next year, followed by, if lucky, a re-education camp, we need help knowing what's real and what's not. #
I hear that cancelling a NYT subscription is wicked hard. That alone makes me feel like cancelling. I cancelled their morning email of things I need to know about. It's one thing for them to exclusively report on Biden's age in their space, but my mailbox is mine. Get the F out of my mailbox. #

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! :-)
