Nothing out there

The internet is boring. I tried to find some interesting stuff out there about the comandeering of culture, or other cyberlaw stupidity, but it's all too depressing for me to write about. Here's a sample:

When FBI supervisors in Miami met with new interim U.S. Attorney Alex Acosta last month, they wondered what the top enforcement priority for Acosta and Attorney General Alberto Gonzales would be. Would it be terrorism? Organized crime? Narcotics trafficking? Immigration? Or maybe public corruption?

The agents were stunned to learn that a top prosecutorial priority of Acosta and the Department of Justice was none of the above. Instead, Acosta told them, it's obscenity. Not pornography involving children, but pornographic material featuring consenting adults.

Fucking America. Read the rest here.

Then there's the devastation in the gulf. Don't even know where to begin with the despair I feel just thinking about it.

So, I sit.

I'm supposed to be packing for my trip to Europe. I'll be leaving on Monday. I'll try to blog from the road when possible. Hopefully something interesting will happen out there, cuz from here shit sucks.
