    State distribution of federal money also has it's problems. For example, consider Brett Favre's use of welfare money in Mississippi: https://www.cbssports.com/nfl/news/brett-favre-scandal-explained-the-ex-nfl-qb-is-accused-of-misusing-of-mississippi-state-welfare-funds/

    U.S. Supreme Court & judicial system

    The Onion filed an amicus brief with SCOTUS in the case of an Ohio man, Anthony Novak, who was arrested in 2016 for creating a Facebook page parodying the Parma, Ohio, police department’s page. The cops threw him in jail for it. He was eventually acquitted by a jury, but sued the cops. The...

    The US’s ‘immigration crisis’ is admitting too few immigrants, not too many

    What "everybody knows" is quite often not quite right. An interesting look at Obama's legacy as "Deporter in Chief" https://www.npr.org/2017/01/20/510799842/obama-leaves-office-as-deporter-in-chief

    Abortion discussions - latest court cases

    Historian Heather Cox Richardson has some interesting background on the 1864 Arizona Code of Law that is cited here. Apparently, this was the original code for the territory, and was written by a single judge. The section cited is part of the code that prohibits duelling, eye gouging, and other...

    @karne You are right. I once went to the doctor for an eye infection and got nothing but a lecture about weight. And that was back when I was thinner.

    Good to know. My husband bought one and never used it. After he died, I gave it away. I wondered whether I did the right thing. Now I know I did since I only make rice very occasionally, and I am cooking for one. As to oil in rice, my mom used to use a little bit of butter. That is also...

    Serious question. Why a rice cooker? What could be easier than just cooking rice? Rice & water, bit salt, bit olive oil in a regular pot. Bring to a boil, turn off heat, cover, and wait 20 minutes or more. ( And machines of all sorts are a pest to store and clean imo. )

    China

    That was then, this is now. In the days before radio, newspapers were the only source for news, whether local or world wide. And then commercial radio arrived in the 1920's and the commercial TV. I wonder how the amount of world coverage in small newspapers changed from the 1920's to the...

    Of course they do. We have accepted Cubans and Venezuelans as asylum seekers from Communist regimes for a long time now. It falls under "fear of persecution for political opinion." https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Asylum_in_the_United_States

    @Louis That is a good list, but it lacks the zeroth item. 0. Agreement on how many immigrants are needed and can be accommodated. Evaluate separate amounts for asylum cases and general immigrants. A large group of Americans think the answer is zero for all types of immigrants. One of their...
