Every October, the cops trot out a PR campaign about the dangers of marijuana edibles to trick-or-treaters, and the local news dutifully covers it. No one is giving kids their edibles. Getting hit by a car is a far more likely danger to kids on Halloween and every day. Read […]

A Warning from the Candy Cops


Things are playing out exactly as they did in 2009 during the Obama years with deficits and debt suddenly the hostage du jour for Republicans (and defacto ones like Manchin and Sinema) who want things to be bad for the midterm elections. Economists (the only social scientists who get rewarded […]

Mint the NFTs



I didn’t mean to start spooky season yet. But horrific photos and reports of U.S. Border Patrol on horseback assaulting and detaining refugees seeking asylum sent a chill down my spine.
