Look! The peppers aren't cropped! (The deer like the little tender bits at the top, especially flowers.)
Although I suspect that's because the deer don't have to go out in the rain. They're sensible! Read below the fold...
From the Atlantic:
Millennial politics is simple, really. Young people support big government, unless it costs any more money. They're for smaller government, unless budget cuts scratch a program they've heard of. They'd like Washington to fix everything, just so long as it doesn't run anything.
That's all from a new Reason Foundation poll surveying 2,000 young adults between the ages of 18 and 29. Millennials' political views are, at best, in a stage of constant metamorphosis and, at worst, "totally incoherent," as Dylan Matthews puts it.
It's not just the Reason Foundation. In March, Pew came out with a similar survey of Millennial attitudes that offered another smorgasbord of paradoxes:
That's a very clear result, confirmed by two independent studies: Reason's, and Pew's: "Millennial politics" are "incoherent" or "paradoxical." (The Atlantic then goes on to discuss "millennial politics" is if the concept were neither, but that tells you more about the utility of empty signifiers than it does about politics.)

A cat feeding machine which uses facial-recognition technology to stop greedy felines stealing each other's food has been unveiled.
Cats have to place their heads inside the feeder to eat and drink - but food and water is only dispensed if their faces are recognised by the on-board computer.
Here's the video. Read below the fold...
We -- that is, people of my age -- often thought, with Dwight D. Eisenhower, of social insurance programs like Social Security or Medicare as "settled law." In fact, they were always under assault, and are today subject to neo-liberal infestations that seek to destroy them because markets. I know I certainly thought of the UK's NHS as "settled law" too. But no!
