And they come with no warning,
nature loves her little surprises.
Continual crisis!

Linkee-poo bits

Okay, so we're going to be traveling until the 18th, so don't expect anything regular until then.

"Have you ever noticed that when something important is missing in your life, your brain can only seem to focus on that missing thing?" The Hidden Brain podcast on tunnel vision.

"AT&T employees took bribes to unlock millions of smartphones, and to install malware and unauthorized hardware on the company's network, the Department of Justice said yesterday." The fuck? (Grokked from Kameron Hurley)

Rest assured the president will remain as he is, Congress will remain on recess, no new legislation for gun control will actually be proposed or get out of committee, but a lot of people will talk about it. Basically, August is usually a holding pattern as we all suffocate in the stifling political hot-wind.

Isn't that a pleasant thought?

But be excellent to each other. Support your neighbors. Help someone off the ground when they fall. Step by step we will change this. There will be disappointments aplenty to go around. There will also be minor victories. It's not so much a marathon as a long walk.

We're all in this together.
