Guardian. Dr. Kevin: “The comments are as much fun as the article.”
St. Louis Post-Dispatch (J-LS)
EarthSky (Chuck L). If worrying about being hit by an asteroid isn’t enough for you…..
– Washington Post. Kevin W flags this quote:
“This is one of the most unstable pieces of land on the entire planet, and they knew that,” said Robert Petricci, president of the Puna Pono Alliance watchdog group, who lives near the plant. “They built it anyway to make money.”
Center for Biological Diversity. Glenn F:
This report from the Center for Biological Diversity is eye opening for more than the obvious reason – pesticide use is allowed in wildlife refuges. The another reason, which I had no idea was going on, is that non-organic agriculture is allowed in the wildlife refuges. Really disgusting.
American Council on Science and Health (RR). From last month, still germane.
CNN. Confirms US coverage is even worse than the UK’s.
Express (Kevin W)
Independent (Kevin W)
New Cold War
Washington Post. UserFriendly: “Your daily stupid.”
Caitlin Johnstonem (UserFriendy)
W. Patrick Lang, Unz Review (Chuck L)
Asia Times. Important.
Patrick Cockburn, Counterpunch
ZERO ANTHROPOLOGY (UserFriendy)
New York Review of Books (Kevin W)
Big Brother is Watching You Watch
Intercept. Brian C: “‘The Echo Dot for kids is functionally identical to the Echo Dot for adults, except that it’s brightly colored and inexplicably costs $30 more than the grown-up version.’ Shoot me now.”
Holy shit; huge. Law enforcement have access to a system that can geolocate almost any phone in the US; the system doesn't really check if the officer has legal authority to do so. One officer allegedly used to spy on judges, other law enforcement

Imperial Collapse Watch
The Daily Sheeple. (Judy B). Lambert had ConsortiumNew’s account but this has a video.
Wall Street Journal
DemocracyNow! The only way you could find Kamala Harris impressive is if that confirmed your priors.
New York Times. UserFriendly: “This is spot on. Apparently she is getting blowback for it, which figures.”
Black Injustice Tipping Point
Guardian (MGL). OMFG, you must read this. And where is the US coverage? Or the Dem pols calling this out?
Grub Street (J-LS)
Vanity Fair (Chuck L). It must be awful to have your life hopelessly tethered to something dumb you did in your early 20s.
s OregonLive (Chris M). Ugly.
CNBC. Right. And Charlie Gasparino was such a true believer in Lehman’s Dick Fuld in June 2008 that he called me to threaten litigation over my criticism of his cheerleading. Having said that, there could well be lucrative dead cat bounce trades, but mere mortals usually lose out if they try to pull that off.
Wall Street Journal. Under Sarbanes Oxley, the CEO and CFO have to personally certify the financials.
Atlantic (Dr. Kevin). Subhead: “Are electronic medical records and demanding regulations contributing to a historic doctor shortage?” NC has been featuring posts about the problems and risks of electronic health records for years.
Wall Street Journal. Five years of “doomsday” (say no electricity without a generator) = Little Home on the Prairie lifestyles. For starters, no more prescription drugs. The last ones made would have, say, 4 year rated shelf lives and maybe one or two years of OK effectiveness after that, max.
Paul Krugman, New York Times (furzy)
The Nation. UserFriendly points out that she is an MMT advocate.
Center on Budget and Policy Priorities (furzy)
More Job Guarantee in mainstream press since I tweeted this, including The Atlantic today.
Still I wait for even 1 to compare audacity of believing details & costs of involuntary unemployment are "efficiently" managed to challenges of implementing a Job Guarantee.
