The only debate is, who gets to decide who gets to be cancelled?

Blindingly obvious, maybe; yet the cancel-culture takes keep pouring forth on the daily from our illustrious thought (and sports) leaders.

When they go on about this a topic that regularly pits progressive versus the center-left— What speech…

While reading a 2019 piece discussing the ending of the Sopranos, I came across this simple yet remarkable feature. Hovering over the hyperlink in blue made the footnote to the left appear in what had been empty white space — no clicking needed!
