The Onion, on Ted Cruz’s new look: “He’s honestly never looked better… Even with the stench of decomposition, most people we talk to remark upon how Sen. Cruz doesn’t make them feel as nauseous as he used to.”

just finished Godless. set in the Old West, it’s an intense, gripping 7-episode miniseries with a fantastic cast of characters (and a lot of guns). recommended.

finally read through what this UEFA Nations League deal is all about, & it sounds pretty cool. makes this #FIN v #HUN match on ESPN+ a little more interesting, anyway ⚽️

anyone else thinking about checking out Lager Jam 5 this Saturday?

finished reading God Save Texas, by Lawrence Wright. I enjoyed the mix of history, personal anecdotes, and political analysis. some of the stories cast recent events – in Texas & the US more broadly – in an interesting, some-of-this-ain’t-all-that-new light. 📚

extra interesting episode of The Allusionist podcast: A Novel Remedy: why a clinical psychologist prescribes novel-reading to her patients, & how post-WW1 Britain was soothed by Agatha Christie’s murder mysteries 📚

(I love The Atlantic & often want to share their excellent journalism online, but I do hesitate to send people to their site because of the trashiness of the ads and online experience. 😞🤢 /cc @TheAtlantic) privacy badger screenshot of theatlantic.com

…and the second: The Refugee Detectives – “Inside Germany’s high-stakes operation to sort people fleeing death from opportunists and pretenders”. no simple answers to tough, life-or-death problems

catching up on old issues of The Atlantic, a couple of really good articles from the April issue. first, The Last Temptation – the fascinating history & politics of Evangelical Christianity…

finished Functional Thinking by Neal Ford for yesterday’s @atxcompbookclub. I found juggling examples in several different languages to be more work than it was worth, but as an intro, background, & argument in favor of functional programming, it nailed it. 📚

6%. tragic.

“With participation rates at such dire levels, politicians might be expected to try with equal urgency to boost voting. But at both national & Texas state level, the response from Republicans has been quite the opposite”

…then we watched Deadpool 2 tonight, obviously a very different style, but even with lower stakes I felt like it had more emotional impact
