    I love looking at data. It's also part of my job. The first thing I do when I look at a chart is to see where the primary axis starts. If it doesn't start at zero then where and why. Then you look at...

    Except that's not what happened. The kids were being well behaved. There was a group of Black Israelites yelling slurs at the Native American group, and the kids. Then the Native American group...

    What are the increased costs? Do you mean that, because they are getting less money from the state, they need to cover that loss? Right now they get roughly $400 million in tuition. If it were only...

    So you break up Amazon to weaken their influence and power. This gives Alibaba group a huge economic advantage. As a Chinese company, you'll *never* get them to break up. So... then what? You've just...

    I wouldn't trust AWS all that much, but I trust them a lot more than some hack IT project run by a state.

    The only successful large-scale IT project I've seen run by the government is the IRS tax...

    Think of it this way. How many hours of deposition was there? How much was "leaked?" Why was it leaked? If you are the plaintiff, you leak stuff because it looks damaging to the defendant. Were...

    According to their own budget, WSU gets about $200 million from the state, accounting for 20% of the operating budget. I guess you could call that "jack shit." I don't know what a more appropriate...

    I think you could make an argument that, as it's a state funded school, it has a responsibility to the entire state.

    Think about the logic of this, that is also being promoted by the New York Times and CNN. Because you are against going to war in Syria - you are a Russian asset. Because the governance of Syria is...

    If you took her whole salary, and divvied it up amongst the 48,000 UAW employees, that would be a raise of $10 per week per employee.

    She was saying, basically, that because white people aren't good at discerning the faces of black people, they shouldn't be involved with the facial recognition program.

    Note that the studies...

    As an aside, if you go over the Zilwaukee bridge at night going southbound, you can look north and see the giant channel markers they use for the Saginaw River flashing. It's a pretty amazing sight -...

    We've taken our young kids to Columbus multiple times. There's quite a bit to do, and the town isn't so huge that you have to plan in a bunch of travel time.

    Because it's a relatively new building in a good location that probably didn't see a whole lot of use, so it's in good shape. Any grounds/site issues can be easily fixed.

    My boss is a vegan and, when he tried one, it kinda grossed him out because of it's accurate simulation of meat. He liked the flavor but the texture was too on the mark for his liking.

    That's an interesting delineation. Why do you think Asian racial minorities are considered to be OK?

    On the one hand, the optics of driving around Mackinac are pretty bad. As Steve Lehto put it, in a video he has apparently taken down, it's, at the very least, disrespectful.

    On the other hand,...

    The real question is will this distract the union rank and file from the ongoing bribery scandal? Hopefully it will do so quickly, I don't like seeing working folks being used as political pawns.
