The Castle

Wednesday. Happy birthday to Bill Rogers.

That Solarwinds hack gets more interesting. A second, unrelated compromise was found within the software, presumably put there by a second actor. Customers must be thrilled.

I recently watched the episode of The Crown where Margaret Thatcher is ousted after former allies turned against her. Then I was rewatching the first season of Borgen as Birgitte Nyborg became Prime Minister of Denmark after a Machiavellian shakeup. In light of all that, Ron Mariano‘s rise to Speaker of the Massachusetts House turned out to be quite a snore.

If I were a cynic, I’d say this is very swamp-like behavior.

When Joe Biden takes over he’ll get access to the @POTUS Twitter account but not the followers, as Trump did when he took it over from Obama. Apparently Twitter has changed its policy and the incoming POTUS will have to start from scratch. That doesn’t seem fair.

And the next time you find yourself snacking on some Flamin’ Hot Cheetos, remember the story of Richard Montañez, the janitor at Frito Lay who invented them and made the company a fortune.
