Today's news and jokes

("Baltimore has seen increased petitioning activity in recent years as it has become apparent that the process is the fastest track for citizens — in some cases the most wealthy or well funded — to pass laws. Over the past two decades, more than 100 questions have been put to voters and only one has failed.") (Related, really dire staff cuts coming to the LA Times.) (Also, Apple changed the way automatic podcast downloads worked, and it hammered the metrics for many podcasts that pretended people were listening to those downloads.)

(Related, the “best Comics-Related Periodical/Journalism” category was eliminated from the 2024 Eisner Awards)
