LAGRANGE RAISES TAXES...BECAUSE OF THE CITY'S BAD DECISION MAKING The cute little city of LaGrange has decided to take 1% of income earned in the city. Why? Because they decided some time ago to build an industrial park using bond money, and now, no one is actually IN the industrial park. This is why economic development ideas by government usually suck. Because they aren't hedging their OWN money, so they do things that people with skin in the game won't do. And now the income earners in LaGrange get to pay for it.
MEET SCHMEAT I love a good burger. And steak. And pretty much any other part of the cow. But I can't see myself chowing down on schmeat just yet. Schmeat, for those of you stuck in the two days ago, is meat made in a laboratory from the stem cells of a cow. Even though the reviews weren't super positive ("it's close to meat" does not sound like a rousing endorsement to me) this is being heralded as the beginning of non-farming meat cultivation. For someone else. Just like I don't want pee teeth, I am not eating lab made meat.
AND HERE COMES YEMEN Y'all know I don't trust Yemen. But now we have a new front in the undeclared war on something. I would say War on Terror, but PrezBO declared that OVER in 2010. So one can only conclude that our Nobel Prize Winner is starting a new front on an undeclared war. Super.
