A little course correction for anybody writing their tributes to the late Stan Lee today: Exactly who created Marvel comics - http://zak-site.com/Great-American-Novel/ff_Lee-Kirby.html
As Monster Magnet put it, "I was thinking how the world should've cried, on the day Jack Kirby died". For The Man, no tears here.

Successes and shortcomings

Argh, and then the White House oers and uses that same sentiment to their purposes https://www.theguardian.com/media/2018/may/18/white-house-accused-of-killing-off-laurel-yanny-debate
I'm starting to think the Laurel/Yanny meme is the most apt metaphor for the contemporary political climate.
I don't get The Independent's content categories. Mark Hamill explaining the viewing order of Star Wars flicks is labeled "news", and Zuckerberg telling Tim Cook off is "US politics"? Somebody explain to me their editorial slant plz
I mean, seriously USA?
IT'S A GUN PROBLEM NOT A PEOPLE PROBLEM

Just read @stromberghanna's translation of my interview with @wcraghead, and it's *so good*. You really captured his voice, it's as if he became fluent in Swedish overnight!
