Lelia Shevtsova looks at Russia’s alleged Weimar Syndrome, mentioned last year by Roger Cohen.

Andrew Orlowski is concerned that EU copyright plans will drown Europe in a worthless pop culture. I can sort of understand where he’s coming from, but targeted international release dates are a losing proposition anyway.

Jan Chipchase looks at unexpected ways self-driving automobiles might play out in our daily lives. An example: [M]asturbating in an autonomous vehicle while driving will be a far more practical use case, but is not something that corporates are going to talk about any time soon.

    WRT Kennedy, I have long said that a moderate conservative justice whose upbringing, schooling, and legal career were spent in the West simply has different notions about how to interpret the law.

The only thing in the world that Clarance Thomas and I may agree on is that overloading the Court with Ivy League-educated lawyers who have spent essentially their entire legal careers in the BosWash urban corridor has consequences, some of them bad.
