Wrapping paper patterns are like desktop patterns: 90% more contrast-y than they have to be.
During the Mueller investigation, Trump’s lawyer floated a pardon to Manafort. Manafort withdrew his cooperation with prosecutors, lied, was convicted, and then Trump praised him for not “ratting.” Trump’s pardon now completes the corrupt scheme. Lawless until the bitter end.

The Pardon Clause prohibits using the pardon power to obstruct impeachments. Trump repeatedly opined—rightly—that Mueller's probe could lead to a referral for possible impeachment (which it did). The pardons he just gave are the ones he dangled to obstruct Mueller. See the issue?

The word "abstraction" is so weighed down by plaque-ready statements of Aesthetic Philosophy, and art historical dick-measuring contests... Equally valid: FUN SHAPES TO LOOK AT. William Mitchell (see last retweet) made some fun shapes! google.com/search?safe=of…

A cool thing in Lu Cong's work (@luconghua) is the way he consistently chops out the high end. I don't believe in consciously cultivating a trademark "style" but there's something to be said for having that one unmistakeable thing that marks you as you. [h/t @artnau]
OMG I just realized why they called it a “penny-farthing.”

Consider how many songs, facts, conversations, photographs, videos, arguments, obscenities, and cries for help are passing right now through a six inch cube of empty air directly in front of your face.
It’s a race. But stop doomscrolling. Read this instead. “Immunizing about 60% of a population within about a year, and keeping the # of cases down while that happens, will help minimize the chances of the virus mutating significantly, Dr. Hodcroft said.” nytimes.com/2020/12/20/hea…

"The king died and then the queen died." Not a story. "The king died and then the queen died of grief." A story. "The king died and then the queen died and so on." The real story.
We could call it "Köchel" as a nod to Mozart's diligent cataloguer (each Mozart work can be referred to by its "Köchel number").
