Politics. Don Granberry on the old Spork Boards was quite fond of talking about them, and here we continue on in that fine tradition.

LOL, spot on, you two. The other great thing is that the government could've used Apple's enterprise management tools to retain full access to the phone, but didn't. Seems to me I'd do that for a large organization even if I didn't think they might use it to jihad.

Sadly, I'm not surprised by any of this. Hopefully, at least the individuals named on the documents will face some consequences.

Looks like the whole FBI encryption struggle has motivated Apple to start getting more active in lobbying. Good.

Okay, I love Sam and his wife, the old guy who was so excited to be taught to read by that doomed child. Not sure if it's the TV scripting, or that the actors have room to breathe. If there were a recut GoT of just the smaller characters, and the point of the show weren't Grand Epic Destinies but how small people get chewed up by cruelty that grinds down from the top and boils up from the bottom... .

I'm guessing you meant this for the Game of Thrones thread?

Whoops, yes, yes I did.

Also this. Writing prompt: "I don't know how you stand it, in all that leather" as an opening line -- 2000 words of fanfic, go.

Condolences to ddt for having to share a name with the unapologetic father of a rapist. There are a lot of stupid people out there. I hope someone doesn't think you're this guy.

That is a steep price to pay for 20 minutes of action

OMG, I have no words.

Thanks for knowing I wasn't (I couldn't afford to send a kid to Stanford! Even for a week!).

Yes, I've gotten a few pieces of hate mail -- "How do you feel having a rapist son" from a bouncing Hotmail address -- and about a thousand people a day coming to my web site and many to my twitter account. I've had to change my bio on each to make it clear I am not that guy (and to their credit, someone on a Reddit thread made it clear I wasn't that guy... and linked to my site), including words hoping that people will take their anger and contribute to a local rape crisis clinic and/or Planned Parenthood.

And I let a friend at Jezebel know for sure I'm not even related. Seriously, I know every Turner I'm related to in the States; there are only seven of them, if you go back three or four generations.

As for that that douche DAT (at least he has lame initials) said, I know, right? How long would it have taken if someone had shot his son? A minute, tops? So, don't ruin a 20-year-old for one minute of action?

I can't even, as the kids say.

In other news... the whole Brexit thing is interesting to say the least.

Is Ron Burns around here to provide some local insight?

Most of my Northern Irish relatives and UK acquaintances want to leave.

If you're not based in London you're likely to favour brexit.
