President Joe Biden wanted Gigi Sohn to fix America’s internet — what went wrong?
If Rudy had made his announcement from the Four Seasons Bora Bora, people would have sat up and taken notice.
Ohio has become has become the poster child for what happens when a state becomes so gerrymandered that none of its representatives fear the voters any more. These are the kind of people who rise to power.
That Texas testimony is infuriating. Especially the woman who threw up on the stand as she relived the trauma that law put them through.
Sadly, it wasn’t the first and won’t be the last time Texas republicans have made people want to vomit.
Isn't Hunter paying prostitutes out of his lawfirm funds really between Hunter and his lawfirm? Maybe they have an "Entertainment" perk and it's perfectly legitimate. Wait, Hunter is employed by a lawfirm? I thought he was a criminal drug addict loser.
Humpty Trumpty wanted it all,
Humpty Trumpty hasa great fall
All of his cowhorets, and all the lawyer men,
Couldn’t put Trumpty together again.
Apropos of all the important stuff, may one note that today's birthday honorees include Gregor Mendel, Cormac McCarthy, and Diana Rigg?
A repost, because I finally got a timelapse to fit. https://open.substack.com/pub/theestivatinghibernian/p/crepuscular?r=2kpb71&utm_campaign=post&utm_medium=web
My oldest nephew is 13 years old today, which is so hard to believe! It's such a cliche to say, but time really does fly.
Oh man, now I want Quizno's for lunch and for some reason all the ones local to me have gone out of business over the past decade. Yet there's a fucking Subway on every corner.
Fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuck all the AGs that think they get to decide what happens to people in other states. If I go to CA to smoke week, I get to fucking smoke weed. My state justice department doesn't get a say in what I do elsewhere.
Help me out here with a better way to reply to comments:
I'm finding when I go to my notifications and I see that someone has responded to my comment or my response to their comment, I have to click to open the article, expand comments, and expand one or more times to find the conversation I'm trying to continue. That's really annoying! (Disqus absolutely sucked for this too, I was hoping for better.) One way both fails me is often I need to see the prior chain to regain context. I would like to be able to click somewhere/how that not just opens the article, but automatically scrolls me to the comment I'm trying to respond to. What am I missing, if anything?
Oh, ALSO pissing me off is that I saw a notification that someone had responded to my recent substack post, comment about the substack post, or note. I couldn't click on it before it disappeared - I was on a mildly traumatic phone call at the time - and I cannot, for the life of me, find it now. I was not expecting a lot of feedback, but I really want to brush up my writing so every such post is precious.
Knock 1 full star off of Substack scoring for me today.
Maybe we could ease up on posting a comment and sharing to Notes, they're the same thing. The Notes are getting clogged up with repeated comments that are already here and people's photos are getting buried. The Notes are becoming just another comment section. Thank you!
