food, meat eating, NYT's savage takedown of Peter Luger 

nytimes.com/2019/10/29/dining/

Was the Caesar salad always so drippy, the croutons always straight out of a bag, the grated cheese always so white and rubbery? I know there was a time the German fried potatoes were brown and crunchy, because I eagerly ate them each time I went. Now they are mushy, dingy, gray and sometimes cold. I look forward to them the way I look forward to finding a new, irregularly shaped mole.

On Asian anti-Black racism. 

We need to realize that destroying white supremacy and resisting the white oppressor means building a pan-POC solidarity instead of subtly adopting tenets of white supremacist ideology: doing so may bestow Asians *proximity* to whiteness, but white supremacist society will never view Asians *as* white. Fighting for liberation should not mean fighting for acceptance in the eyes of whiteness. White-acceptance is not and will never be true liberation from white supremacy.

Btw I watched a Lifetime movie today and will try to write a newsletter tomorrow or Thursday, so now is a good time to subscribe if you haven't yet (although, bewilderingly, 59 people have), at tinyletter.com/pixleyamelia

It seems like a great time to reiterate: I hate clientside JavaScript, and the feature bloat it has brought to The Web and mainstream browser engines (Gecko, WebKit, & Blink). This can't and shouldn't last!

I want The Web to focus on hypertext (without JavaScript turning every feature into an attack vector on privacy) that can be rendered nicely in more form factors than just a laptop or tablet.

Everything else should be shoved off onto other MIMEtypes or URI schemes.

Although holding a lock across process boundaries may sound questionable to you, most other platforms try to use imperfect heuristics to fix concurrency issues. Or they just hope race conditions don’t happen. In my experience, prayers are not a very effective concurrency primitive.
