An examination by The Washington Post found a candidate uniquely undeterred by facts.

Here's the bottom line on dealing with cops when you're stopped for any reason or for no reason. Do exactly what they tell you to do. Even if what they're telling you to do is wrong, or illegal, or stupid, or immoral. Follow their instructions explicitly. Do not argue with them, do not try to convince them, do not improvise, do not make seemingly minor deviations. Just slavishly do what they say. You may still get hurt or killed, but you vastly improve your odds of surviving and having the opportunity to make your case to authorities and the public later. If you're killed, your opportunities to be heard will be greatly reduced, to say the least.

+Karin Curran I never use those site-based sharing tools, for reasons I won't get into here right now.

IMDb got themselves into this mess when they got caught publishing age information provided by subscribers in the course of ostensibly private transactions with IMDb.

I say go for it. If Trump thinks he can rattle Hillary with someone her husband boinked 25 years ago, Trump's projecting his own fragility on her.

Strong Santa Ana winds and very hot temperatures predicted for my corner of L.A. A good time to elevate the giant wind turbines while the giant lightning collectors are idle.

A lot of rumors flying around about Google's Oct 4 announcements, but no hard facts.

http://www.nytimes.com/2016/09/25/us/politics/gennifer-flowers-debate-trump-clinton.html [New York Times articles are no longer linking properly in G+] // Campaigns often engage in psychological warfare when picking guests, as appeared to be the case with Mrs. Clinton’s choice of Mr. Cuban. But inviting a woman who had a sexual relationship with an opponent’s spouse would be in a different category. If Mr. Trump does invite Ms. Flowers to be in the audience, he could also be taking a risk because he faces a potentially record-high gender gap with women, who might be troubled by such an aggressive and personal move. //

Clinton: "I'd like to thank the organizers of tonight's debate, and all our guests this evening, particularly Ms. Flowers, who slept with my husband. Gennifer: Welcome. I see you're still a ho, and still eager to be used -- now by this absurd little troll -- as a lurid distraction from real political issues. You'll notice that I'm still married. Now watch as I become the next President of the United States."

An excellent analysis of how well meaning changes to one of the worlds most important system caused undesirable unintended consequences and caused chaos.

Trump is merely a symptom, and not the disease!

Republicans and Democrats of 2016 have neither intelligible boundaries nor enforceable norms. As a result, renegade political behavior pays.

Best part about this one is that it features my old cohort John Levine (still a frequent commenter on my lists) -- who wrote the original "Internet for Dummies" book.
