WaPo won't let you view in incognito mode anymore. Clearing cookies after each viewing looks to the the only free option available.
Yup. It’s not worth it to me, I have the cookies set up on this device the way I need them. I will try later on a different device.

I can see the articles. Firefox browser, with NoScript and Ublock Origin installed. I selectively allow scripts to let the site load but not the ads. NoScript works site by site and remembers the settings, so once I get a site working, it tends to stay that way. I feel it is necessary to block ads because sometimes they carry malicious payloads. That means I can't see some sites at all, but the Internet is large and there are plenty of others.

Really interesting article on left antisemitism, with a particular emphasis on the British left.

The core of the argument is not that the Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn is necessarily an antisemite but that his particular view of socialist economics (which they consider a dangerous oversimplification of Marxist economic theory) lends itself all too easily to conspiracy theories about Rothschilds and George Soros and Jewish bankers and Mossad, and thus help create the sort of intellectual environment within and without the party that antisemites find congenial.

It's based on this book, which I read some time ago and found pretty impressive: Corbynism: A Critical Approach

Barry made hurricane strength for a few hours today and came ashore on the central Louisiana coast as a weak category 1 storm before quickly returning to tropical storm strength, where it currently is.

Barry was a highly unusual storm during its development, it looked like a typical cyclone that had been cut in half with its entire northern side relatively cloud- and rain-free, and all the convection and torrential rain in its southern half. Once it approached land however, the convection and rain in the southern half began to rotate around and north and it's now raining quite heavily in the NOLA area, much of the south coast, and southern Mississippi.

The rain is just starting to get into my area in the last couple hours. It's light to moderate so far. Steady stiff breeze though.

In McConnell’s boyhood town where his family owned slaves, the reparations debate thrives

Mmm...hmm...He and his family directly profited from slavery. The wealth they gained through that means has been passed down generation to generation. He opposes reparations, of course, and believes in trickle-down economics and pulling oneself up by one's bootstraps, though I'm not sure that people like him even believe that...I suspect it's just a convenient method of maintaining power.

We've built our very own Victorian caste system. We should have erased that wealth directly after the Civil War, imo, so that it could not be passed down. We also should have done right by former slaves, using that wealth, but instead we allowed former slave-owners to set up a sharecropping, educational and social caste system based upon race, and allowed them to romanticize their treason and slave-owning. It's not even all that far in the past that we de facto allowed them to murder the descendants of slaves with impunity as a matter of policy. We didn't make them own up to their sins and we are still paying the price for having not done that.

The Bank of England has announced the design for the new £50 note, in what should be a popular decision (I'm rather sad it's not a woman scientist, but at least it isn't Margaret Thatcher, who had been suggested).

I guess this is about the most they can do to make up for the country's terrible maltreatment of Turing and all other gay men persecuted for their sexuality.
