I wouldn't want to spend over $1 million on a kit. But four days sounds pretty good.

It will be time soon for our family to "cut the cord," so this was useful.
For years and years I used to tell my microeconomics students that one response to the water shortage in California caused by price controls was a proposal to use icebergs for fresh water. But unlike the company described in the this article as believing "they would not melt significantly during the voyage" the information I had indicated that melting was a big worry. But the engineers--practical, as always--proposed to wrap the icebergs in plastic, on site in the Antarctic.
And I told the students if you think that will be cheap, guess again. Such are the potential costs of tampering with the price system.

Don't panic is the message.
Ebola is a scary disease, made much more scary by some wildly exaggerated claims in some books and movies. So, before we talk about Ebola, let's talk about another scary disease called "rabies."
It's a virus, serum transmitted -- meaning contact with blood, saliva, or other bodily fluids from an infected individual is needed to transmit the disease. Thousands of people die of it worldwide, every year. Once you've sickened with it, become symptomatic, the symptoms are pretty horrible, and there's really no effective treatment. People who develop the symptoms are very likely to die.
In fact, the number of people who have survived active rabies can be counted on one hand with fingers left over.
They always have been. But now they really need to change.
Some information here I did not know.
The truth, by contrast, is that about half of prisoners were convicted of violent offenses, and that some of the others committed violence but pleaded guilty to lesser offenses. Even the fifth of prisoners who are locked up for drugs tend to be mid-level dealers, not users or low-level distributors. And, while decades-long sentences make the news, most prisoners who committed crimes not involving the most serious violence are out within a year or two. In other words, while incarceration has undoubtedly soared—even relative to crime, which has dropped substantially since the early 1990s—our propensity to throw people in prison has simply not reached the heights of ridiculousness that many assume.
Wait. I thought everybody would fall before before bad Big Business. Apparently not.

I understand that it is almost certainly politically impossible, but can't we--please--stop pretending every farm in America is a few dozen acres on the edge of bankruptcy and then stop subsidizing them?
I expect that this is, sadly, true.
Guy writes an op-ed for the New York Times stating that given how bad America currently is he's thinking about moving to Norway. Jazz Shaw responds.

I know this and you probably know this, but that's only because we had decent courses in American history, the kind of courses that seem to be disappearing from our schools.
We all benefit from the ability of a political minority to stifle the will of the majority. The U.S. Constitution restricts the power of the majority because an unchecked majority can be just as threatening to liberty and justice as a dictator or tyrannical oligarchy.
Fine analysis by Ed Morrissey.
The problem for McCullough is that she was asked a trick question. The correct answer was neither “right” nor “privilege,” and not even “world peace.” And it’s this confusion that exists at the heart of the contradictory and damaging policies in place that drive costs out of reach for many Americans.
