Has anyone looked at all the low-margin non-upgradable embedded systems that use OpenSSL? An upgrade path that involves the trash, a visit to Best Buy, and a credit card isn’t going to be fun for anyone.

I was in a car—a beautiful black Mercedes, big, brand new—in Germany, in a snowstorm. The snowflakes were as big as silver dollars, it seemed like. I was alone in this car, waiting for some people who had gone into a building. And on the radio came this song by Richard Strauss—I think it was the first one of “Four Last Songs.” The Mercedes had a great sound system, I turned this thing up, and it reduced me to tears. It ended up in Wild at Heart. You never know when the thing’s going to come along that will make you fall in love.

Failing to concede this, men get stuck in a permanent dysfunction Kimmel calls ‘aggrieved entitlement,’ in which they ‘refuse to even be dragged kicking and screaming into that inevitable future’ of greater gender and racial equality. Instead they rage, not at the corporate overlords who have actually shipped their jobs overseas but at the amorphous feminists, or more likely ‘feminazis,’ who have stolen American manhood.

We are not spared slavery’s intermittent and incidental horrors but they are less important to the overall mood he has created than the underlying rhythm of relentless exploitation.

I am completely croggled by the fact that the NSA apparently had absolutely no contingency plans for this sort of thing.

The sooner the myth of ‘intractable partisan warfare’ is dispelled, the better. The establishment leadership of the two parties collaborate on far more than they fight.

These days you can’t throw a rock without hitting some muddle-headed affluent white dude who spends his nights stroking his multiple chins and pondering the question of the lazy poor.
