Me: I would like to be a better person

Therapist: In what ways might you like to be better so we can work on those

Me: First of all, how dare you,

Silly me, assuming that because in bash (as of 5.0.3)

IFS=''
ARR=("one" "two")
for value in ${ARR[*]}
do
echo $value
done

acts as you'd expect,

IFS=''
ARR=("one" "two")
for index in ${!ARR[*]}
do
echo ${ARR[index]}
done

would also work as you'd expect.

There's nothing more ridiculous than hand-wringing over people being mean about Rush Limbaugh's death. Being mean, often about the deaths of other people, is what Rush Limbaugh did for a living.

He made the world worse and it is better now that he is gone.

Man the culture war is such an amazing gift to the wealthy. Spent years plundering the public treasury to the detriment of your power grid? Blame it on the environmentalists!

It's been so good to see the much-vaunted "fever break" of the GOP now that Trump is no longer president

cnpol, xinjiang, mass surveillance 

"Xinjiang really shows how privacy is a gateway right, where if you have no privacy, that’s where you see that you have no freedoms as a human being at all. You don’t have the right to practice your religion, you don’t have the right to be who you are, you don’t even have the right to think your own thoughts because your thoughts are being parsed out by these incessant visits and incessantly monitored by surveillance systems, whether they’re human or artificial, and evaluated constantly for your level of loyalty to the government."

[he has] investments in the private equity fund Pine Island Capital Partners, a private equity firm that specializes in military contractors"

When I saw people insisting that the DC insurrection was the work of "rioters" and "terrorists", I thought about saying something about how that's not a helpful tactic. Here's why. This will ultimately end up targeting the disenfranchised and not the white millionaires who arranged and attended the insurrection.
