Gadfly Bites 2/1/19 – The “no time to be clever” edition

Compiler’s note: The hellacious weather around here has destroyed my productivity this week so today you lucky lucky subscribers (I love all five of you—truly) will get to see behind the scenes of what I laughingly call my “process”. Below is simply the list of clips I’ve got for you today, with a couple of words to denote why it’s interesting/important/worth clipping. This is what the first stage of the thrice-weekly clips process looks like. After that, I cleverly weave a narrative that tries to link all the disparate pieces into the “story of the day”.

There’s no time to be clever today. Onward!
