Is there any Apple II emulator for Linux that supports copy-and-paste, so I can easily input short BASIC programs? I don't see support for it in MAME, linapple (which I can't get fully working anyway), or the otherwise lovely Apple ][js scullinsteel.com/apple2/

Help!

Why does DuckDuckGo have my website in its index with the URL parameter "?Such+keenness,+such+prolonged+preference,+is,+how-+ever,+not+common" after it???

A remarkable and nightmarish scene playing out in Portland should terrify anyone who cares about the US constitution: unmarked vans full of camouflaged and unidentified federal agents are pulling up next to protesters on street corners, then snatching and arresting them with no explanation.
