For 2 yrs, experts have been telling me and @JeremySchwartz that a private fence in #Texas could fall because it was built on a floodplain & due to shoddy construction.
There's now a gov-commissioned report that the DOJ tried to keep secret for more than 1 yr saying just that.
Despite this, the government allowed the fence to remain as part of a settlement with the builder. via @texastribune @ProPublica propublica.org/article/border-

As we watch Elon Musk slide into rightwing radicalization in real time, I’m reminded of this 1941 piece by Dorothy Thompson.
“Who goes Nazi?”

In short: it is the people who love money and status and power that are at risk.
Those who resist the urge are the people who have a solid family life; a job they love for the work, not the money; a moral framework based on pluralism and equal access to opportunity.
Worth a read. #nazi #Twitter #liberal

I think the outrage over Spotify Wrapped surveillance to be over-blown. Spotify’s garbage, but that’s a different story altogether.

The main thing that makes it hard to have nature and green in cities isn’t density of buildings or density of people — it's density of CARS. And the better you’ve designed the density of people and buildings, with real multi-modal choices, the fewer cars you need.

This is where we're at! 1/4 of the way to our daily $2k microgoal. Will we hit $24k before, say, 7am eastern? Because the previous deadlines of midnight have been way too stressful? I don't know!! It's all so exciting kickstarter.com/projects/jonro

Below the thunders of the upper deep,
Far, far beneath in the abysmal sea,
His ancient, dreamless, uninvaded sleep
The Kraken sleepeth: faintest sunlights flee
About his shadowy sides; above him swell
Huge sponges of millennial growth and height;
And far away into the sickly light,
From many a wondrous and secret cell
Unnumber'd and enormous polypi
Winnow with giant arms the lumbering green.
There hath he lain for ages, and will lie
Battening upon huge sea-worms in his sleep,
Until the latter fire shall heat the deep;
Then once by man and angels to be seen,
In roaring he shall rise and on the surface die.
— "The Kraken" by Alfred Lord Tennyson, 1830
