As you’ve probably heard by now, Elon Musk has reportedly made moves to complete the acquisition of Twitter at the original purchase price. It’s a pretty stunning reversal given how he’s fought all summer to get out of the deal. When the news first broke this afternoon, there was talk of the sale being completed as early as Friday. However, as the day went on, cooler heads are starting to see ways in which Musk could still weasel out of the deal. In this case, by not having the financing. Our own Seth speculates, “This is all being driven by lawyers now. It’s not business anymore, it’s legal gamesmanship.” That said, Musk could have obtained financing and may own Twitter by the end of the week. If so, he’d probably be doing humanity a huge favor by running the site into the ground. (USA Today)

Jeverett15 thought Barbara was a fascinating narrator in Zoë Heller’s Notes on a Scandal. "She is stunningly perceptive about her own experience, writing frankly of the pain of loneliness and the limits of her personality." Have you watched the 2006 movie with Judi Dench as Barbara?
