"California has plenty of water…just not enough to satisfy every possible use of water that people can imagine when the price is close to zero. As David Zetland points out in an excellent interview with Russ Roberts, people in San Diego county use around 150 gallons of water a day. Meanwhile in Sydney Australia, with a roughly comparable climate and standard of living, people use about half that amount. Trust me, no one in Sydney is going thirsty."

The most depressing part of this post: "We're making our way through the report and will add to the list."
Some of the key evidence Justice Department officials cited in their report on Ferguson.

"Here’s Ferguson Police Chief Thomas Jackson writing to the city manager: “Municipal Court gross revenue for calendar year 2012 passed the $2,000,000 mark for the first time in history, reaching $2,066,050 (not including red light photo enforcement.)” The city manager was thrilled. “Awesome!” he wrote. “Thanks!”"
What the Ferguson government is doing isn't just racist, scholars say, it's medieval.

The first phone screen I shatter and it's a biggie! I dropped my iPhone 6 Plus flat on its face on Friday, and it cracked into a million pieces.

Luckily it still worked, so I backed up using iTunes (I had iCloud backups but figured this would be faster) and restored to an old 5s.

I was able to get a Genius Bar appointment for Monday morning. $130 and 90 minutes later, had a new screen.

Interesting fact: when you get a new screen, they also replace the Touch ID, front camera, and speaker elements.

And now I'm keeping the case on.

"Where in the Constitution does it say that the people of California have the right to pay .5 cents per gallon of water? "
The NY Times has done it again.  One of its top reporters discusses drought at length without mentioning water prices!  Why do intellectuals fear the economists?  We don't bite but we also don't offer free lunches.  Raise wat...

Where in the Constitution does it say that you have the right to not pay for fresh, drinkable water to be piped hundreds of miles and delivered to your home on demand...and then funneled away before flooding your property or offending your olfactory sense?

"The worst abuses of government happen when an invading gang conquer people of a different race, religion and culture. What happened in Ferguson was similar only the rulers stayed the same and the population of the ruled changed. In 1990 Ferguson was 74% white and 25% black. Just 20 years later the percentages had nearly inverted, 29% white and 67% black. The population of rulers, however, changed more slowly so white rulers found themselves overlording a population that was foreign to them. As a result, democracy broke down and government as usual, banditry and abuse, broke out."
In Ferguson and the Modern Debtor’s Prison I wrote: You don’t get $321 in fines and fees and 3 warrants per household from an about-average crime rate. You get numbers like this from bullshit arrests for jaywalking and constant “low level […]

"But white supremacy—as evidenced in Ferguson—is not ultimately interested in how responsible you are, nor how respectable you look. White supremacy is neither a misunderstanding nor a failure of manners. White supremacy is the machinery of Galactus which allows for the potential devouring of everything you own. White supremacy is the technology, patented in this enlightened era, to ensure that what is yours inevitably becomes mine.

This technology has proven highly effective throughout American history. In 1860 it meant the transformation of black bodies into more wealth than all the productive capacity of this country combined. In the 1930s it meant the erection of our modern middle class. In Ferguson, it meant funding nearly a quarter of the municipal budget"
Darren Wilson is not the first member of a gang to be accused of something he did not do. If only the cops of Ferguson extended to their own citizens the same due process he received.

"This is the heart of the story: Sureshbhai Patel was left paralyzed because his neighbor thought he was a Black man, and the police were primed to believe the same."
These are the facts the news isn’t telling us
