I wrote about bridges collapsing in Pittsburgh and the absurd lies Americans tell ourselves about our crappy country more than three years ago now.

Many are making WMD jokes about this ghoul, but as for me, I am simply appalled at his ignorance of what is frankly a crisis point in the sizing of off-the-rack women's wear.

1-6 inches of snow predicted tomorrow? Can you imagine if any other profession allowed itself a similar range? "Your plane will depart tomorrow between 1 and 6." "We've bought you a dress between size 1 and 6." "Best to limit your daily wine intake to between 1 glass and 6."

The past already happened. But the future is different. Models might be educated hypotheses. But they're still hypotheses. Not "facts." Not "the science." And certainly not "data." And they accumulate error across long time spans.

The person I nominate to replace Justice Breyer will be someone with extraordinary qualifications. Character, experience, and integrity. And they will be the first Black woman nominated to the United States Supreme Court.

Lots of listeners to our ep with @DLeonhardt said their anxiety about COVID was not personal health, but infecting others and their community. David addresses this here ---- >

From egirls to Oath Keepers, from the dirtbag left to the TradCath right, every political tendency in America agrees on one thing: they all want to fuck cartoons.

"They're not banning the book; they're just removing it from the curriculum" has a powerful "Our policy of emigration is now a policy of evacuation" vibes.

Rizzo's won't scam you by selling you a bottle of midlevel Mersault for 172 smackers, though.

The funniest thing about the Sarah Palin restaurant story is that the restaurant basically has the same "Spaghetti with Meat Sauce" menu as Rizzo's Malabar Inn in rural Crabtree, PA, but they charge you 28 bucks for the De Cecco spaghetti and ground hamburger.

LMAO. The times-revenue multiplier for apparel businesses is about 1.75. American capitalism has gone insane.

Kim Kardashian's underwear label Skims has raised funds at a $3.2 billion valuation. That's double what it was nine months ago. @KimKardashian

It occurs to me that the vast majority of Americans have confused the end of the Anne Frank story with the end of The Sound of Music.

Streaming broke the model by aping the movie studio model *WITHOUT THE BOX OFFICE*. So now they've crafted a business model where instead of putting out one episode of Law & Order every Thursday forever, you have to put out an entire $200M Star Wars every Thursday forever.

Also, different shows on every different day of the week, further serializing and disaggregating the productions.
