Monday links

A little hurricane and Equifax post-op today, but with so much of the Gulf Coast and now Florida a gigantic mess, and with this being The Dreaded Anniversary once again — not to mention it being a Monday — let’s otherwise keep things on the lite side.

Finally, here’s a delightful short video about a boy and the dog he rejects.

    Hate to rain on your Lite.

    But I found something that was commenting on that Nurse’s arrest for refusing to draw blood without a warrant. Here’s something that goes beyond Revenue Enhancement, in that some are now requiring 5 arrests a day from their officers.

    Be warned it’s a video.

    Enjoy, for what it is.

    Our ISD superintendent showed elementary school teachers the “Present” video at their pre-semester training session, with the lesson, “Get to know your kids before you make assumptions about them.” I suppose it’s something that needs occasional reinforcing among education professionals.

    LOLed through the Tesla story at all the “OMG For-Profit Corporations can control your cars Without Government Permission” comments. Look around, folks. AirBnB is offering free evacuation service, Wells Fargo just sent me an email with a bunch of things like forgiving payments and dropping ATM fees, insurance companies are bringing in adjusters from all over the U.S.,and lots of other big for-profit Corporations are joining in.

    Not to say some corporations don’t suck; but Government permission? It’s the government I’m worried about. Viva la profit motive.

    Forget? Not likely. September 2017: the month each of my daughters went through a hurricane.
