Guardian.UK: Denton, Texas, banned fracking last year - then the frackers fought back.

Oil and gas is allowed in every zone [in Denton, yet] bakeries aren’t allowed in every zone because there’s a bit of morning truck traffic.” I suppose they could hire some biker toughs from Waco. The state isn’t going to lift a finger.

Archaeology News Network: Ancient shipyard used by Admiral Zheng He may lie beneath construction sit

Wow. Noteworthy is the fact that ‘austerity’ destroyed Zheng He’s 3,500 ship fleet in 1525. So much for Confucianism. History repeats thusly [thinking of other voyages of discovery we need to commit to].

Nice Marmot: The Growth of Oligarchy.

Yep. It’s been many years now since Princeton University made more money as a real estate holding company than as a university. They could drop the whole education side of things and be quite well off.

BBC: Prince Charles visits Lord Mountbatten 1979 IRA murder site.

Shaking hands with Gerry Adams. Surprised he could do it. Trivia: the same man who embalmed Lord Mountbatten, also embalmed King George VI, Winston Churchill, Judy Garland, Jimi Hendrix and Bon Scott, among others. Amazing where a hyperlink will take you.
