Record shattered: 73 container ships stuck waiting off California

quote [ Supply chain crisis deepens as more imports snared in historic ship queue off Los Angeles/Long Beach. ]

A fascinating twitter thread filled with links about the supply chain collapse basically in progress

An interesting side effect is that all those worries about companies automating jobs away from low wage workers have basically gone out the window. Turns out you can't replace people with robots when your supply chain can't get you the parts to do so.

New Book Aims To Remember These Forgotten Murders

quote [ when I came across a story about a serial killer stalking gay men in the early 1990s that I – and almost everyone I mentioned it to had no knowledge of – to say I was shocked would be an understatement. The story barely received any media attention nor is mentioned in the canons of queer history. ]

Interesting story and opinions on media reception.
