Is the GOP Senate going to convict? Almost certainly not, but who cares?! You put them on the record that they're OK with this flagrant criminal behavior, and you make it clear to the American people that you're doing everything possible to stop him.

I'm sufficiently invested in the original that I think pretty much anything is going to be a trainwreck. But I grant that this is probably not a widely-held view.

I suspect this would be true whatever show it was running opposite, including "greatest hits from the local weatherman's last decade", reruns of the Love Boat and CSPAN coverage of post-office renamings.

Thanks for the reply. I guess I'm not adequately seeing "built for the long haul" as an *artistic* strength. So I find it hard to imagine invoking it with The Sopranos, Mad Men & Cheers. I'm not surprised you like it; I am puzzled by the company you put it in.

I hope you write about Law & Order some day. I would never describe it as "good" or invoke it in talking about artistic strengths. I'd like to read about what you see in it that I'm missing.

In face of the climate emergency, global government R&D spending on energy is c. $27bn that is LESS THAN AMERICANS SPEND ON PET FOOD AND TREATS ($31.1bn BLS). As a share of major economy GDP, energy R&D is 0.04% and barely keeping up with growth.

There’s a shortage of perfect movies in this world. It would be a pity to damage this one.

Remember, the big lie for a long time was that nothing was wrong. Now the big lie is that it’s too late to fix it, so you might as well give up and decide humanity had a good run, oh well. It’s the same lie. It’s the one that keeps you from interfering with profit margins.

I've found some resources online, but I assume there is an organized effort along these lines, focused on this. Lots of middle-class people ask "what can I do?" It seems like "switch your bank & tell the big guys why" is a very plausible ask.

I found your New Yorker article amazing—first really hopeful PLAN I've seen. Is there a group coordinating/organizing boycotts/divestment of FF-funding banks? I looked at RAN who you discuss but didn't see much about it on their web site.

He did. Little, Big and the first two volumes of Aegypt were in the Western Cannon, not just the American one. & Bloom has been a big booster of Crowley's in general.

The title will make it sound like it's treading old ground; the open paragraphs are the familiar air-sirens sounded by those who follow these things. Press on. It has some new (to me, anyway) ideas about what to do, about how to really make *progress* on this problem.

I can't recommend this piece by strongly enough. Envisions a real path forward. And adds a simple to-do for everyone who wonders 'what can I do?': switch your bank, & tell the old one why you're leaving.
