It’s been in the 80s here the last few days, so it feels like summer is basically upon us. Which means I will now be listening to Japandroids’ Celebration Rock exclusively for the next 4 months.

Mad Men previews are seemingly made by daring the show’s editors to cut together 30 seconds of footage that includes at least half of the show’s major characters without revealing any substantive plot point in the process. And they succeed! Every week! This week, apparently, Don will use an elevator, Peggy will ask “What?” and Pete will learn something he hadn’t heard about before. Heady days.

The government is too afraid to say it, but the internet is a utility. The data that flows to your home is just like water and electricity: it’s not a luxury or an option in 2014. The FCC’s original Open Internet rules failed precisely because it was too timid to say that out loud, and instead erected rules on a sketchy legal sinkhole that was destined to fail.
