Story here.   Be careful when dealing with internet businesses that you don’t know and don’t have a track record with.  Seek info first. (h/t to Jeff “Inch High” Groves for the pointer to the story.

What is the harm?

Story here.  Government at all levels is too big. The power we grant to government officials has gone to their head.  4 officers and 3 cars and a search warrant to take an opossum from a guy who had rescued it and was caring for it.   Do we really need a law forbidding this type of thing?

smart people listen.  Professor Reynolds is a deep thinker who anticipates many of the future’s trends and problems.  It is well worth reading anything he writes.

We need more forgiveness in our lives.  We need to be more like the victim’s brother in this story. (BTW, good on the police for never giving up.)

Here is a collection of stories from July.  I’ve often wondered why some press outlet didn’t make an article like this a monthly feature.

Don’t do stupid things

Four looters in Philadelphia did a stupid thing.  Results, 1 dead, 1 wounded.  Play stupid games, get stupid prizes.

It gets worse

I posted earlier about this story here.  It turns out the person that was killed was a local business owner whose business was next to where the crowd had gathered.  From the story it appears that the police have a suspect in the initial shooting, but don’t know how or who shot the business owner.

I am sure this will make things calmer
