He doesn't have much time left on this planet, after all. All I have to do to mend the relationship is just apologize for all the perceived slights and my supposed immorality.
Maybe I should. I miss my dad.
So I stare at this email and stop myself from typing all the things I actually want to say, and wonder why it is my dad and I can't get along, why I'm not good enough for him to love how I am (despite him attesting that I am), and whether I'm the asshole for not sucking it up.
He's as stubborn as I am. He'll mark a line in the sand on how I or my wife ought to change (usually because God or something). It's invasive and insulting. I'll demand an apology, and he'll refuse. After a few years he'll forget what the feud was over and wonder why I'm distant.

In my adulthood, time has been marked by cycles of reconciliation, relative tranquility, and surprise passing of judgments against me (or the family).

"No," said the elder.
The dragon made a curious gesture, and the elder felt her word be caught from the air.
"You hoard refusals?"
"They're hard to find."

No future U.S. presidential candidate can any longer ignore much less disparage the values of monetary freedom that are uniquely #Bitcoin I don’t give a damn who they are or what party they’re running for.
Freedom is not about party, but allegiance to principles and values.
Fiat billionaires gotta stick together, right?
You could see him telegraph it coming. Ever since he joined the Elon posse for that SNL thing, he's been parroting the Musk narrative ever since.
People were mean to Musk, had to find a reason to be mad at those people.
