A lot of obligations are just flat-out unpayable. Illinois is already running to the buzzsaw, even though most problems are still about a decade away or more for most states. But the trendlines have been clear for years - pension fund projections premised on 8% annual growth were flat-out lies, and unless dozens of states want to crank up taxes to tax-revolt levels, pensions will just fall short. There's no other way. [ Reply | More ]

Subscribing means you get all of the new episodes. If you have to pay for something you'll know because you'll see a price and will have to enter your password (or possibly fingerprint) to confirm. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] Is Marky Mark an example of how it is ultimately impossible to change one's initial reputation? Despite all the attempts he has made at acting and participating in other aspects of the film industry, he is still best-known as "Marky Mark" of rap group "The Funky Bunch." 16 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

I love the name Charlotte and that's what I named my cat, who's already 11. I named the cat after the SATC character but later met a woman named Charlotte who's become very important to me, a role model of sorts. I may use the name in a couple of years, if I have the chance, and just deal with the awkwardness for a while. In 10 years no one will remember anyway. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] Why did Bill Clinton sign the ludicrous "Digital Millennium Copyright Act" (DMCA) in 1998? It extended certain copyrights to 75 years after the death of the author, which is obviously absurd, and it has led to a large body of "unrescuable" abandoned works which are long out-of-print, which remain theoretically under copyright, but which are completely absent from all but the largest libraries due to the fact that nobody actually "owns" them in an active sense. Estates are unaware or indifferent, etc. It was a really, really, REALLY dumb law - is Clinton just a stupid man, or was he paid off bribery-style by the media industry? Either way, it reflects very poorly upon his status as a human being. 10 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

One particularly grim example is in the film industry. The DMCA extended the copyright term on films from 75 years (already way too long) to 95 years. In 1998, films from 1923 were entering the public domain, leading to the rescue/distribution of early films by restorationists and collectors. Clinton moronically froze that healthy process in amber, and 1924 films will not enter the public domain until 2019, at which point many of them have been permanently lost, since there is little incentive for the rights-holders to maintain or distribute them, due to their very limited market appeal. You can actually get sued for distributing film imagery from 1924. Think about that. Clinton made that federal law. [ Reply | More ]
