|"THE YEAR IS 2019. America's finest men don't run for President."|
... my troubles definitely weren't far away, but it was a day of several significant milestones:
- all of the events of Akira, Blade Runner and The Running Man were finally all definitively set in the past of 2019 and before;
- it was the 9th anniversary of me joining Twitter;
- it was the 10th anniversary of my blog comrades Darian Worden and Tom Knapp getting hired/promoted to do good work at the Center for the Stateless Society (Darian wound up penning around 100 commentaries while I've only managed about a third as many, let alone Tom's 250+);
- the belated growth of the public domain that began (after a twenty-year hiatus imposed by retroactive copyright extensions) with the lapsing of 1923 copyrights a year ago continued for works published in 1924.
