Shopper who mistook butternut squash for cheese goes viral
He confused cubed butternut squash for cheddar. One bite later, our intrepid squash confuser realized his mistake and returned the squash. The store won't have it. After a confusing back and forth, the man leaves cheeseless, and with a whole butternut squash.
I am sure his wife is proud! Heh.
You need to read the exchange to get a feel for the utter insanity of the back and forth between our intrepid Carolina Man, and the store employee.

Appeals court blocks D.C. law restricting gun rights
Dangerous, violent cities like D.C. will benefit most from a must issue concealed carry statute. It seems progressives have no understanding of cause and effect. As the progressive Fox Butterfield routinely could not fathom how incarcerating criminals could reduce crime rates, so progressives cannot understand how disarming law abiding citizens, could result in increased crime rates.
The asymmetrical defense which concealed carry offers makes life dangerous for violent criminals. People respond to incentives, and there are few things more incentivizing than the asymmetrical threat of immediate injury or death for violent crimes.

Estimating Ride Hailing's Bite out of Transit
"Lyft carried 163 million rides in 2016, up from 53 million in 2015. If a third of that growth would otherwise have taken public transit, transit lost about 36 million rides to Lyft in 2016. I can’t find exact numbers for Uber, but Uber carries about four times as many riders in the U.S. as Lyft, so the two of them together may have taken 180 million riders from transit.
APTA’s 2016 report found that ridership declined by about 244 million trips nationwide. That suggests that ride-hailing services could be responsible for about three-fourths of the drop."
Well, that's bracing.

Boy howdy doesn't crushing the poor sound great?! Finally the poor will have health insurance, and their health will be great. Except that health insurance is unrelated to health, and Medicaid is a negative indicator for health outcomes. To be frank, Medicaid is a bit like the Sheep Mincing Machine from Wallace and Gromit, A Close Shave.
Oregon Study: Medicaid 'Had No Significant Effect' On Health Outcomes vs. Being Uninsured
Yes, here in Oregon we took the time to perform this very necessary, if dweeby, study on exactly how damaging Medicaid is to those trapped by it. Worse, Medicaid appears the opposite of what it is. Medicaid is the Witch in the Hansel and Grettle story, she seems kind but plans to consume the children, just as Medicaid appears nice but is not.
Studies Show: Medicaid Patients Have Worse Access and Outcomes than the Privately Insured
Medicaid is a massive political bait and switch. The poor believe they are getting medical coverage, but they are receiving lower access to health care providers, and poorer medical outcomes. The progressives have yet again hit on an epic lose/lose policy. With the only win being to them politically.

The comment I hear most often when I tell people I was happy to let my children walk to school, join the Marine Corps, or do something daring and dangerous is: "But the world is a dangerous place today." But it's not, at least not more dangerous than in the past.

Encourage your kids to get out and do something.
Reading this dangerous advice I had to smile, my childhood was spent riding, shooting, and exploring, and I made sure my children did the same. I remember doing every single one of these "dangerous" things. Because daughter is now a senior, she will need to take over cooking duties a day or two each week. Nothing like experience to ready one for life, and as she suddenly realized, life wasn't creeping up on her anymore, it was rushing. She will be off to college after this next school year, so time for me to put the polish on her life skills, and cooking is the queen of the life skills.
