Flotsam and Jetsam

Miscellaneous thoughts and observations.

How long before some people start equating limiting data (data caps) by broadband providers to limiting free speech? Don't think we're far off from that... Cool story of a wedding that took place in Lake Tahoe at the same time the Bruins were playing the Flyers... If before the season I told you the that going into March the two finalists in the Eastern Conference (Boston Celtics and Miami Heat) would be tied with the New York Knicks in the standings - you'd probably think the Knicks must be having a great season. Not so much... Think much of what passes for news but is actually misinformation, rumor or speculation could be greatly reduced if all social media platforms had the policy of simply labeling any story that uses anonymous sources as "potentially fake news." Think of how many stories from the past few years that turned out to be complete bunk that were based on anonymous sources... Speaking of fake news - remember two years ago when outlets such as CNN were touting fraudster Michael Avenatti as a hero? I haven't forgotten (which in part is why I never watch CNN)...
