Rita Soronen says about 24,000 children turn 18 years old each year and "age out" of foster care; most of them put out alone into the world without a lifeline.

Very interesting
It is widely predicted that low-lying coral reef islands will drown as a result of sea-level rise, leaving their populations as environmental refugees. But new evidence now suggests that these small islands will be more resilient to sea-level rise than we thought.

This is a huge turnaround in decriminalizing people that I find a welcome change from business as usual.

When no one is thinking...
whatever you think of the federal system....I don't think that individuals should get for free what everyone else is paying for...
Why doesn't the IRS just tack it on to his bill?  
While I appreciate not wanting to run into armed police in national parks on the one hand...ours are infested with drug cartels so...who would you rather meet?
More than 100 head of Cliven Bundy’s confiscated cattle were released from a corral outside of Mesquite after a 20-minute standoff between angry and armed ranchers and law enforcement officers Saturday.

I agree with this headline so much I laughed when I saw it was a Krugman article
Who can deny we are seeing the echoes of the 1890's-1914 at work here?  The sense of time slip is making me uncomfortable.
Thomas Piketty isn’t a household name, although that may change with the English-language publication of his magnificent, sweeping meditation on inequality, Capital in the Twenty-First Century. This is a book that will change both the way we think about society and the way we do economics.

I didn't know this was a law...
but it makes sense
Sonoma County's fire prevention officers are warning residents about the illegal use of sky lanterns that have started a number of vegetation fires.

It's so pretty in movies but since we don't allow fireworks it does make sense.

I think it's wrong to expect Google to solve our social ills.  How about we put our government to work doing its job - improving infrastructure...
Unless we are willing to raise the tax rates to the levels which made the US prosperous then we are going to see rising anger continue...and it's silly to be shocked that some people are going to resent you for what you have...and San Francisco has a decades long history of violence - which was aimed at people who were different.  The last time I went to San Francisco it was the most shockingly dirty I had ever seen it. It is clear that inequality is bad there.   I'd rather hang out in Oakland, which is at least nice in the daytime.
