Friday Shortcuts – Robots Reading Romance Novels

Last week, I wrote about how I was excited for robots to read this blog. Turns out, they might be more into reading romance novels instead.

Andrew Sullivan returned to writing this week, to pen an article about the demagogue who shall not be named. I agree with Sullivan that most people are far too sanguine about the recent turn of events. He is not like other politicians. Whether his possible election as president is, in fact, an “extinction-level event” for constitutional order is unclear. But I suspect if he gets elected it’ll be the worst development for American civil liberties in 150 years.
