1. Let us not forget the legacies of Jay Dickey, Todd Tiahrt, and Larry Craig.

    Without their historic efforts, Americans today might not be living in fear of violent slaughter.

  2. So I visited Twitter.com directly for the first time in a while. It thought my primary feed should feature a politician remembering a preacher because I follow someone who follows him.

    I don’t want an algorithm managing my attention until it’s at least smarter than a pig.

  3. Thanks to the NLRB and James Damore for establishing that “ignorant, redpilling, self-important priviledgepricks” is not a protected group.

  4. My favorite part of the splainweb is how a simple query like “does anyone like blueberries?” is met with paragraphs about how strawberries aren’t really berries.

  5. It’s incredibly nice to lunch with an American friend and not discuss the current state of politics.

  6. I love the odd satisfaction of “it works just like it did before!” when refactoring code.

  7. With Belt and Road, China is expected to spend 7 times more than the US did with the Marshall plan.

  8. One of my favorite places in Amsterdam is the result of an Englishman, Canadian, and South African. So of course they use Cajun seasoning and the vibe reminds me of Seattle.

  9. Some of the smartest analysts in the industry today are also socially ignorant and myopic. (I’m looking at you, Ben Thompson.) So I diligently follow but try to balance with enough SJWs in my umwelt.

  10. Investors apologizing for creating the web and designers regretting addictive social media are wishfully imagining themselves as creators. #humbleguilt

  11. Our Dutch housekeeper called us “the cleanest people (and cats) on planet earth” and I’m not sure if I should be proud or OCD-embarrassed.

  12. The GOP is disavowing their own openly-Nazi candidate for IL-3, but will they ask themselves why the Democrats don’t have this problem?
