Look, I get that configuration formats are a minefield and that one day we'll look back on JSON and YAML and realize what a mistake they were for any kind of configs, but let's remember that termcap config is pretty fucking terrible.

407, toll routes, and privatization #cndPoli
If you don't know about the complete and debacle that is the 407 toll route, this is accurate.
It's amazing how people continue to be won over by the notion that "privatization" will somehow magically make everything better. It's such horseshit. Putting profits before anything else is such a huge mistake, yet the simplicity of market equilibrium is just too much of a swan song, I guess.
My wife is a high school teacher. She hates policing dress codes and finds it to be a waste of time.
The extremes parents get upset about never happen. Kids quickly learn the social boundaries of choosing how to look. And for younger kids, it's almost always the parents buying the clothes.
And the complaint about "looking correct for work", well, lots of places have a dress code that is pretty clear when you start or are hired there. Dressing for school didn't teach me much about dressing for work.
