A Licence to Watch Television

quote [ In many countries, owing a television involves more than one type of cost. First the device itself, which may cost, depending on your taste, from several hundred to several thousand dollars. Then, there are subscription fees for television channels and online streaming, as well as electricity cost. And lastly, a tax for owning the television set, especially if you live in Europe. ]

It's mostly channel 3 cause we don't pay our licence fee

Mad John Brown & Oliver Cromwell - Christopher Hitchens Pt6

quote [ John Brown - the catalyst to the American Civil War and first terrorist, Inspired by a romanticized version of Oliver Cromwell.
By a strange twist of fate, Robert E Lee, Stone Wall Jackson and John Wilkes Booth were all at Brown's Execution ]

So there's a show on Showtime coming out in October centered around John Brown, but the trailers are really hammering on the 'people thought John Brown was insane' button. Which was basically white supremacist propaganda that didn't emerge until 1890, about 40 years after his death...

We'll just have to see if it's any good.

How to drive fossil fuels out of the US economy, quickly

quote [ Large-scale electrification would slash total US primary energy demand in half, from around 100 quads to about 45-50. This a huge deal — it means America only needs to produce about half the energy with renewables that it is currently producing with fossil fuels. ]

Not very romantic number crunching of public energy data but maybe a goal to cling to.
