Trump’s over-the-top, boastful AP interview, annotated - The Washington Post

The fish shell is awesome - Julia Evans
Oh yes, I agree with almost everything here. Other than the posix issue, fish is just such an incredibly sensible shell, after just a few months i can't imagine going back to zsh or bash.
Darcus Howe: ‘He translated the anger of street protests into political action’

The One Direction-Donald Trump Feud We’re Not Ready For

No Reconciliation. No Empathy. No Kindness.
A well written article from Veronica Schanoes on what this election of a bigoted antisemite means to people he has targeted.

Commander-In-Chief Donald Trump Will Have Terrifying Powers.
Thanks to inaction by President Obama, when Donald Trump  becomes commander in chief in January, he will take on presidential powers that have never been more expansive and unchecked. This is why people need to start acting, fast.

A Brexit post-mortem
A simply superb open letter to Dave Hameron, the idiot who has, it appears, destroyed his own country to settle scores in the English Tory Party.

A pox on all their houses.
