I learned a long time ago that when a business asks me to evaluate something they did for me, anything below “Super Duper Excellent Wow” means I was dissatisfied and perhaps they should call me to find out in detail what I didn’t like. A Lyft driver explains.

Since 2001, Bobby Bonilla has gotten a million dollars a year for not playing for the Mets. Curiously enough, he does not appear to have brought a major computer company to near-collapse, forced hundreds of employees to blow him, or done anything comparable.

For many years I have watched the stores and businesses of my youth fall prey to the antisocial Darwinism by which corporations thrive. A & P was old when I was born, and it survived as many of its grocery brethren fell, but now it too is on the way out. Around here the chain that it is replacing many of its stores is called Acme. The Church of the SuperGenius views with alarm.

I thought geek culture would mean you get a job by being able to do it, rather than by social skills and guessing the unwritten rules. Fat chance.

Hobby Lobby built its case on an extreme interpretation of medically refuted pseudoscience. And that's not even the worst part.

The computerized future is being unkind to Yahoo!, so it is trying to bring back the past, specifically the part of it where everybody had to come in to the office. Jon Carroll demurs.

How capitalism works. [OK, so it's old news. I hadn't heard it.]

Thanx to Frank Palmer Purcell on Facebook

Fritz Perls defined criminal as "an individual who arrogates to himself the privileges of the state." Rupert Murdoch understandably falls into that category, since he runs an empire the size of a nation-state. Unsurprisingly, he decided to use state tactics of information gathering, such as electronic snooping and burglary.

Thanx to Mercury Rising.
