Comment A better question is why (Score 1) 258

A better question is why do we still have mostly paper based libraries. Some books (a small minority) can't be digitized, sure, keep paper copies for those. But the rest can and should be digitized. You can then dramatically reduce the cost of staff and facilities, and make the service more convenient. What's not to like?

Comment That sums up the problem with the left (Score 1, Troll) 233

That sums up the problem with the left, actually. The left wouldn't care about a pedo ring involving their anointed candidate, just like they didn't care of Bill's frequent flights on the "Lolita Express" to the pedo island. The reason why Clinton is mentioned in Pizzagate is because the "conspiracy theory" originates in her emails published by Wikileaks.

Comment Really? (Score 1) 590

He defeated Clinton who had been building her career up for this election over the course of 30 years, had unconventional, "ethics be damned" style support from mainstream media and DNC, raised a ton more money, etc. He picks up politics a year and a half ago and beats Clinton by a margin not seen since Reagan. He also beats the openly hostile press, both parties' establishments, and well over a dozen of other primary candidates, and does it with one third the money and people of the opponent. And then armchair politicians like you go to Slashdot and post drivel about him not knowing what he's doing. Enough already. The dude is pretty darn smart. He knows _exactly_ what he's doing.

Comment And women elected in these (Score 2) 266

And women elected in these will forever be branded as "diversity hires" and never given credit for anything, even if they deserve it. The only thing that "affirmative action" shit like this accomplishes is it creates deeply seated prejudice. It may be hidden, but it's there, and people don't forget. The only way to avoid this is by promoting strict, unyielding meritocracy.
