Most sheriffs and police chiefs are on board with concealed carry. Granted, most serve over rural areas (Los Angeles County and Beaverhead County each get one sheriff) and that skews the numbers.

Maybe WASP values had their place, and we’re less than we could be without them.

We’ll have to pass the bill before we know what’s in it, of course, but some are concerned that Hillary Clinton’s tuition plan may backfire.

Are video games taking young men out of the workforce? Well, that’s better than turning them into psycho-murderers I guess? Anyway, some serious reflection on the voluntarily unemployed.

Branko Milanovic looks at populism in the international context, from Trump to Putin. And China!

The people of Windsor, Canada, are living with an unpleasant sound possibly coming from an industrial island, but no one is sure what to do about it.

Brutalism for architecture yes, but for websites no please.

Things like this aren’t really helping the pro-immigration cause. Or maybe they are, if they do successfully convince people reoffend rates are lower than they evidently are.

Pork rectums, it turns out, need to be deboned and inverted before they can be sold.

    I used to live on Mt Dew. Can’t anymore, tears up my stomach. Haven’t touched it in years. Every once in a while, I can stomach a Mello Yello.

      Mountain Dew specifically? That seems odd. Have you been checked for gastritis? That can progress to cancer if left untreated.
