Great White - Lady Red Light

Musk should stay on as CEO of Twitter

...and step down as CEO of Tesla.

Put a left-leaning no-nonsense CEO at the helm who can take a longer view and remain focused on it. Taking the company private now that the stock price is down would help with that.

There's something seriously wrong when Democrats are cheering at the misfortunes of the world's largest electric vehicle company which just happens to be an American company with over 100,000 employees. Musk is proof that liberals can sometimes be mesmerized by shiny objects as well.

He can run Twitter into the ground for all I care. Tesla is strategically important to the green energy movement and can be saved.

Six specific reasons why soccer blows

1) The game clock counts up instead of down and never stops. So, it counts up to some period (can never remember what it is) plus some minutes for stoppage (never know what that is either). This is less dramatic than a countdown to freaking ZERO.

2) Not enough scoring. If a team miraculously gets a 2-point advantage at halftime, they act like the game is all but over. Zero to zero final score is a thing. Ties are way too common.

3) Most scoring occurs on penalty kicks. Goalies often jump the wrong way. Why don't they just do a coin flip for the point instead?

4) Injuries seem largely faked. NFL players roll around on the ground in agony far less than these candy-asses. Get up and rub some dirt on it.

5) You can get penalized for merely kicking the ball to your teammate. OK hockey has this too, but at least hockey violence is real.

6) Announcers get way too excited when there is no actual scoring action. If you are listening to it in the background, you'd think the score is 24-23 (instead it is probably 1-0, or 0-0). Calm down, euro-dudes.

Did I forget any?

Another Brick in the Blue Wall

Warnock's Senate seat will be immutable blue during the 2024 and 2026 elections. With Senate control coming down to the wire in every recent election, you can't overstate the significance of this. This is as strategically important in the medium term as the widened Democratic majority is in the short term.
