Or maybe afraid of her. I'm not quite sure.
Still, it's a great parody, and great advice.
> The bigot is fat and loud, he throws punches, he uses bad language. But there’s another fellow behind him. He’s 55 or so, an ex-factory foreman. Or a contractor. He has no problem in principle with Arabs or Mexicans. Maybe he’s Mexican himself.
> Not that he’d say so. Who knows when his people came over? Who cares? He worked hard, kept his head down, speaks English. He’s American. And he’ll be damned to see jobs fly across the border, or go to barrio kids who work for pennies and send it all back to Juarez anyway. And don’t get him started on the Chinese, or the expense—hell, thehuman cost—of keeping troops in every tinpot nation on earth.
> His son, his nephew, his neighbor, the kids he sees in the papers—they joined to serve their country. Theirs, got it? So why are they dead in some sonofabitching desert?
> Once upon a time this guy made Election Day phone calls for his union. He voted for Bill Clinton. He was proud to call himself a Democrat.
> Now the factory’s closed, his wife left, the kids moved away, and he competes for fry cook jobs with ex-convicts. He considered Sanders, because “revolution” is a nice word, but Bernie talks like a damn shoe salesman.
> Our guy wants a real bastard, someone who’ll put them all against the wall.
Clinton needs to make America afraid of the prospect of Donald Trump in the White House with control over the US military and nuclear arsenal. She needs her version of the Daisy commercial.
Arment is not only a smart industry observer, but he's also an Apple enthusiast and iPhone app developer. He's the opposite of an Apple hater.
In 2007, BlackBerry was the pinnacle of mobile email and voice devices, which was what mobile phones were for. But the market moved on and BlackBerry didn't. Apple is at risk of the same here in 2016, Arment says.
Related: I recently had my first experience with Apple CarPlay and was delighted. Pairing your iPhone to the car is accomplished with a single tap, and after that you can get your Maps, messaging, phone calls, and listen to podcasts on the screen on the car's dashboard and using the car's speakers. Like the Apple slogan used to go: "It just works." And, quoting another old Apple slogan, "you already know how to use it" – even if, like me, you've never used it before, have never read about it, and have had no training.
And that reminds me of how so many Apple tools don't "just work" anymore. My MacBook Air freezes up sometimes. It seems to not do that if I don't use Safari and I reboot every day. Not sure though. Haven't found a cause. And recently I was getting quite exasperated figuring out how to share an album in Apple Photos. I'm still not sure I did it right.
Apple is becoming like Microsoft in the late 90s.
The premise: A criminal steals a time machine, and a team comprising a pretty woman historian, a roguish Delta Force officer and a pilot go back in time to prevent the crook from rewriting history.
I like that one of the characters is black. I enjoyed the hell out of "11.23.63," but noted it would have been a very different story if the main character had been black. His life in 2010 might not have been all that different, but in 1960? Boy howdy.
There are supposedly a few time travel shows coming this fall. Fine by me; I like time travel stories.

I’m a technology journalist, editor, blogger, writer, husband, dissatisfied Democrat, American, nonobservant Jew, and science fiction fan.
I live in San Diego with my wife, three cats and a dog. We did not intend to get quite so many pets. We’re a little confused how it happened precisely.
I grew up on Long Island, and I’ve lived in New Jersey, Boston, and San Francisco.
I’m West Coast Bureau Chief for Light Reading, a news and community site for the telecom industry — the companies formerly known as phone companies.
That keeps me busy.
I've finished a novel and am nearly finished with another, as well as a 41,000-word novelette.
