Who's going to pirate Dilbert strips?

Scott Adams has announced future Dilbert strips will only be available on the locals platform.
So the question for cheap supporters - will someone break his strips out of locals and into the general population.
It's $70 per year for locals.
Adams has lots of good stuff.
He'll still be on twitter.
I have years of experience avoiding content behind paywalls.
If it's good, someone will share the important parts in their media.
His stuff is enjoyable, but so much on the internet is enjoyable. You can't read it all, and you can't pay for everything you'd like to support.
It's time to wait and wonder.

What have you done for me lately?

It's franchise tag day in the NFL.
Lamar Jackson received the "we like you, but not sure we want to marry you" tag from the Baltimore Ravens.
We'd like you to stay, but if you find a better deal, take it.
Jackson was great in 2019.
Until the playoffs that year.
Too many injuries since then.
Too many other quarterbacks have passed him since.
Younger, cheaper quarterbacks keep flowing out of college.
Good luck, Lamar. But the Ravens can keep more good players if you move on.

Years and years of Dilbert ideas.

Scott Adams has dominated the news recently - with a podcast that has led to widespread condemnation and newspapers dropping Dilbert from their lineups.
There are still newspapers?
Adams is still on Twitter, and Elon Musk appears to support his free speech rights.
Will Dilbert continue?
Adams now has years and years of ideas for his strip.

We type, therefore we are

The blogosphere lost another long-time member with the death this week of Gerard Vanderleun - proprietor of American Digest.
He wanted his last post to be one discussing his name - passed down from any uncle who died during World War II. 
The post was first published on Memorial Day 2003 - with timeless themes of a family dealing with a loss years after the event.
His uncle's name is on a monument at Battery Park in New York.
His works at American Digest reside on the internet for two more years.
The memories endure.

Did anyone do a split screen?

Powerline discuesses two of today's big political event - the vote for Speaker of the House and Ron DeSantis' second inauguration.
They were going on at the same time.
Did any TV network show both?
