Just got an excitably worshipful note from a reader about Elon Musk (who is such an “individualist” that he is currently sulking about being ignored by Democrats).
You know him: The man who has littered the earth with Tesla and now seeks to further pollute space, via rocket producer SpaceX.
There’s the conservatives’ yen for celebrity, of course. But the short memory about—and fixation with—a man who made his fortune off a taxpayer-subsidized industry perplexes.
As for Musk’s “support” for the Canadian truckers: Judging from the overall monies the truckers received; Musk was either a non-player in freedom’s fight or mean in the extreme.
