Productive weekend. Fixed two doors, tore up some Davidiums and replaced them with Lilacs, cleaned the car, etc. PS: Why must interior door frames and hinge screws be so cheap? Both doors had the screws stripping out of the jambs. Had to take them off and pack the holes with epoxy so the screws would have something to bite into. I’m starting to think jambs should be constructed with T-nuts and use machine screws.
Why does it always take longer to unpack than to pack it all up?
Yes, I am feeling snarky today, why do you ask?
I love it when we cause materials and chemicals to behave in ways that violate those general understandings of how physics works.
The family is back home, just the 3 of us again. I love the cousins, but it’s nice to have the house to ourselves again.
Got family in town all week, with their two boys that Bug loves, and the new (adopted) teenage daughter (that he’s warming up to).
Yes, I have a cold, it sucks, so be glad I knocked out this much. Excuse me while I use my neti pot and worship my new god, Sudafed.

The governments of the world, privacy issues, and debates about information monopolies might turn out as the least of Facebook’s problem. If the new Pew data is to be believed, Facebook is not only under fire, but teens just aren’t that into it anymore.
A very old argument comes to a contemporary debate. In a fascinating article @Frankpasquale starts at Hayek and runs a thread through Jefferson and Hamilton to the current debate about what, if anything, should be done about the might of Google, Facebook, and other big tech.
