...we wonder as we wander: Here at the incomparable Howler, we wonder as we wander. We've especially wondered, of late, at the different stories the warring tribes hear concerning the prosecution of Michael Flynn.
That said, we continue to struggle with a sprawling yet uncooperative computer system. For that reason, we think we won't post today.
The reds are told one thing about Flynn. The blues hear different allegations and facts.
It's a terrible way to play the game. But this is the world we all live in.
For a primer in the way we humans are wired to escape uncertainty, we'll recommend Christina Cauterucci's new essay at Slate. But please don't ask us to give you a link. True belief is human and easy, our computers today are hard.
At least in theory, a new computer arrives tomorrow. How will we ever tell HAL?
Special bonus submission: Here's that missing link.
