Three Interesting Things

1. It's not news that folks, especially public figures of some sort can experience harassment and hate speech on Facebook and other social media.  ProPublica is trying to track some of this
2. As heartwarming as every rescue boat or rescue story coming out of Texas is, it's easy to forget how huge the Houston area in particular is, and how some neighborhoods are not seeing boats and reporters floating through. 
3. I had not really heard that Waffle House prides itself on staying open through weather disasters (which, yes, I did read a book with that concept baked in and had assumed it was exaggerated) and that they have teams they deploy to areas.  Please tip your staff well, because that may mean they haven't gone home yet.
