Ghosts in #Merica

I bet they live here. Why not because people can't seem to let the past go? There are all these memorials to treason. And here's a perfect place for those ghosts to live, in a ramshackle.

#Artax should never have died in #TheNeverEndingStory #Falkor #TBT #injustice

I've not posted for about a week, and that's unusual for me. There's something I need to say, though. Artax shouldn't have died in the movie The Never Ending Story or in the book. It wasn't necessary. It didn't advance the plot. Atreyu was dealing with enough stuff without that. Falkor could have carried both Atreyu and Artax. Falkor could do about anything.

Read this tragedy below (note how Artax could talk):

#Equifax breach may result in class action lawsuits #equifaxbreach #equifaxhack

Equifax announced yesterday upwards of 143 Americans may have been affected by a data hack. In that hack personal information of tens of millions may have been compromised. It is likely there will be millions of legal claims against Equifax. At this point damages are hard to calculate because they haven't been fully realized.

It is also difficult to say the amount of damages that will eventually be sought in what should be numerous class action lawsuits.

Furthermore, there will be numerous third party claims as well because banks are likely liable as well. Or this is my supposition.

I can't recall a data breach where so many people were compromised other than a governmental breach. It appears to be the largest private company data breach. Suffice it to say, this isn't going away. It will be a boondoggle for lawyers.

Read a book. It matters. Knowledge is the only way out of this quagmire.

Keep reading and thinking.

Ask questions.

Give me New York any day

Recently I saw an article from a NC lawyer talking about how rude NY lawyers are. I've experienced quite the opposite. I know plenty of rude NC lawyers, but the best person I know is my wife, Jillian Brevorka, who is both an NC and NY attorney. You cannot decry the events in Charlottesville while engaging in bashing people from the Northeast predicated on an assumption made because the South LOST the Civil War. People gossip much more in the South. I've lived here my whole life, and I hear it all the time. People in the South also have horrible inferiority complexes, which is why they constantly have to pat themselves on the back. Look at our art exhibit; look at our new buildings; aren't people in our town nice; aren't we swell; please tell us we are great. "And so on," as Kurt Vonnegut would say, that brilliant Cornellian.

#TornadoWatch due to all the "hot air" lately #LaborDay

There's a Tornado Watch right now, and there's a lot of "hot air," people shooting their mouths off and such. Pretty standard fare these days in the South, which still has its issues. I used to think those issues were gone, but all this crap in Charlottesville makes me think otherwise. We live in a screwed up place at a screwed up time.

Hopefully things will change.

Happy Labor Day.
