folks talkin' 'bout taxes (err stimulus?)

economists discuss the impacts or merits of the AOC tax comments/proposal. i’m inclined to agree with the assertion that the AOC proposal is largely symbolic. however, it will be interesting to see if there’s practical discussion around the notion of deregulation of building in large cities. (ref: SFO and MSP debates on this) if there’s anything wealthy, white “liberals” hate, it’s folks messing with the value of their homes.

christopher hitchens, 1949-2011

it’s been a bad few months; ritchie, jobs and now hitch. love him or hate him, he forced you to think and digest things. i largely loved his columns and his books but i took issue with his iraq war stance. i never wrapped my mind around the falklands bit and didn’t square with his socialist leanings. (real socialism, not the shit tea party definitions) that said, i rarely missed the opportunity to read him....

a bad month indeed - dennis ritchie RIP

october 2011 is turning out to be the month we lose some giants. dennis ritchie died he gave us UNIX, we all learned C from him and we stood on his shoulders to build the internet and tools we have today.
