That's 0 point 16, folks!
 
The small world of big donors: 64% of all political contributions $200+ were made by just .16% of Americans.

.16% that needed something doing to make their business more profitable, or some other corrupt agenda.

Have dog. Will travel.

My touring companion. Girlfriend's not much of a conversationalist. Still, she never complains about my music choices.

Sold out ...

What do these guys have to hide? They're selling you out, no doubt, and making sure the prices for medicine remain high. We can thank former Dallas mayor Ron Kirk for his help with that.
 
How #BigPharma (and others) began lobbying on the Trans-Pacific Partnership before you ever heard of it.

From 2009 until mid-2013, drug interests mentioned the #TPP in 251 separate lobbying reports – two and a half times more than the next most active industry.

Who else was in on it - and what did they want?

With a tip of the hat to Eric Hoffer

They who lack Love expect things to happen without effort. They ascribe failure to a lack of inspiration or of ability, or to misfortune, rather than insufficient application. At the core of every true Love there is an awareness of the difficulties inherent in any achievement, and the confidence that by persistence and patience something worthwhile will be realized. Thus, Love is a species of vigor.  

Hoffer was speaking about "talent," but I think Love fits well, too.

Sickening distortion of democracy.

"The best government money can buy."
 
Thanks to #McCutcheon, the wealthiest donors can now pour millions more into our elections - a single individual could give $3.5 million or more in one cycle alone.

It's another serious blow to America's campaign finance system - one that effectively ties a bow around Congress and delivers it to the 1%.

Save the Planet
 
To all you savvy developers out there, who harbor a passion for astrosciences, or at least nurture a strong desire to avoid massive asteroid impacts....

The Asteroid Data Hunter contest scheduled for launch on 17 March will offer a total of US $35 000 over the next six months to anyone with the coding chops to create new asteroid-hunting algorithms. Winning solutions must boost detection sensitivity, minimize false positives, overlook imperfections in the telescope imaging data, and run well on all computer systems. Such efforts could help NASA's sky surveys find even smaller asteroids that still pose a threat to human populations.

The Dude abides ... still

Still one of my favorite movies ...
 
Today is "The Day of the Dude," the day when fans of "The Big Lebowski" celebrate the anniversary of the 1998 film's release. To mark the day, we have an infographic on the origin and use of the word "dude": http://lat.ms/1f2H504

One is well-served, when reading reviews, to note that the ones most likely to review are those who are unhappy. This is not one of those reviews. I have lived here for nearly 11 years ... my next lease renewal will take me past that. I never expected to live here that long, but Royal St Moritz has served its purpose in my life very well. For me, it's been an almost friction-less way to live. The neighbors have been friendly and quiet, for the most part. The management has been responsive to every problem I've encountered. Yes, the rents have gone up. Grapevine is not the cheapest place to live. But, overall, this has been a very good value.
