Random geo-photo: the contact between crystalline Precambrian ore rocks and the overlying Cambrian Deadwood Sandstone at Homestake gold mine in Lead South Dakota. Homestake is an open pit and underground mines to 8000 ft below the surface. By the end of it's day, they'd found 55 billion reason$ for the mining.

A bit of a historical perspective on two long-held American concepts that often butt heads: Free Speech vs. “Thou Shalt not yell FIRE in a Crowded Theater”. This has been on my mind because of Charlottesville of course. Forty years ago a neo-Nazi group wanted to march in Skokie IL, a Chicago burb with a large Jewish population. That bastion of free speech, the ACLU (which many conservatives love to Bigly hate) supported it as free speech. Many of their supporters denounced them for it.
I like to say ACLU's motto is "we defend the right to free speech no matter how much it sucks".
I’m not sure how to compare Charlottesville to Skokie 40 years ago. When it comes to the Free Speech vs FIRE question, there is a lot more gasoline in the theater these days. And the way some theater-goers yell FIRE has gotten hotter. This is not a small thing.

Trump usually replies to criticism quickly. Has he replied to David Duke, who was reminding him to behave? Not that I have seen. If it bothered Trump, he would have called out Duke and told him what a pathetic loser he was. He doesn't seem to be shy about doing that. But apparently not this time.....

I would recommend you take a good look in the mirror & remember it was White Americans who put you in the presidency, not radical leftists. https://t.co/Rkfs7O2Ykr

White Americans are so afraid to speak out that we've allowed our country to be invaded and our children to be propagandized by marxists. https://t.co/Rkfs7O2Ykr

The nutrient overload from the US Corn Belt will only get worse with climate change and without real (!) efforts to do something. This effects the groundwater that thousands drink as well.

It's all so elementary

Water problems in and from the US Corn Belt won't be getting better unless there is an actual effort to make it happen.
