VDH on the increasing ridiculousness of our vaunted public-health establishment.

Back in the eighties, when I was trying to get management at Rockwell to buy clones instead of IBM PCs, because we could have three times as many machines for the money, when the saying was “Nobody ever got fired for buying IBM,” I’d say, “When I’m in charge, I’ll fire someone for buying IBM.”

OK, they’re not really spam, because they ask, “Is Rand Simberg there?” But that’s all they do, despite a clear machine request to leave a message. They’ve come from three or four different numbers. One of them asks repeatedly, “Is Rand Simberg there?” for over a minute (it’s my business line, so it just says “This is Interglobal Media [my corporation], please leave a message.”).
