* The other day I had a tweet that didn’t take off the way I thought it might:

No, our opponents’ policies of denial and inaction are destroying the ecosystem of the planet on which we all depend. Ours are toasted.

Maybe it was just a bit too on the nose.

* “Student-Athlete” term in question.

“This whole area of name and likeness and the NCAA is a disaster leading to catastrophe as far as I can tell,” wrote Perlman, a former member of the NCAA Board of Directors and law professor specializing in intellectual property. “I’m still trying to figure out by what authority the NCAA licenses these rights to the game makers and others. I looked at what our student athletes sign by way of waiver and it doesn’t come close.”

* Nate Silver says the Senate is looking safe.

* The best revenge is living well massively screwing over the guy who’s been trash-talking your dad. I believe that’s written on the Carter family crest.

* Guy who’ll say anything to debate guy who won’t commit to anything.

* @MLAJobs is the @occupyMLA of the season.

* And drop everything: you can read the first chapter of the new Culture novel at io9.
