For those one or two wondering where I've gone to, my recent problems with goo.gl short links created by Magenta River were the impetus for me to really set up a POSSE solution, so now I blog at https://herereadthisarticle.wordpress.com/ , and https://ifttt.com/ forwards all my posts to Twitter, where I am @JohnL4.

If I could automate posts to Google+, I surely would.

Special callout to +Magenta River for fixing a problem I had with goo.gl links pretty quickly. Looks like they switched over to bit.ly; I don't know if that's just for me or for everybody, but: wow, such responsive.

G+ denizens interested in cross-posting might want to consider them.

[Update: I've switched to a blog and IFTTT.com to crosspost; I don't get warnings about failures from IFTTT, but I don't really monitor that closely, so it's possible they're just swallowing errors instead of fessing up?]

The beat goes on:

«And earlier this week, we learned (also from AP) that at least two political appointees at the EPA received permission from the agency’s ethics review board to continue getting paid for work outside of their government jobs.

John Konkus, a former Republican political consultant and a senior official in the EPA’s public affairs division, received permission from the agency’s ethics review board to keep working for at least two undisclosed outside clients.
....
Another former Republican political consultant, Patrick Davis, who works at an EPA regional office in Colorado, received an exemption last year so that he could continue getting paid for his work as the sales director for Telephone Town Hall Meeting, which provides services like robocalls to political campaigns.»

"Let's drain the swamp into the EPA! We hate that agency anyway."

The tooltip on this is the killer.
