This is an idea blog. The intention was to kick-start discussions about ideas, but it has turned into my catch-all blog. I cannot take responsibility for any posts or comments other than my own, nor for where the links take you. If you are offended by what I say, you can let me know. Otherwise you are on your own. Not intended for children or the thin-skinned. Tell it like it is...

The Atlantic magazine posed this question in their March 1 edition: What object would you put in a time capsule for the next century to represent our current moment?
An iPhone is the easy answer. My variation, though, would have these additions, which I hope would not disqualify it:
It would be an iPhone with a screen protector on which is printed a choice @theRealDonaldTrump tweet.
The iPhone would be glued to the center of an LP — I think Dj Khaled’s “Grateful” from 2017 would be good. The whole would ideally be packaged in an recent edition of theWashington Post.
