There's apparently a small(ish) black bear roaming around inner-suburban Raleigh (ITB, near Village Square). Multiple sightings in people's backyards. Crazy.
Here it is yesterday abt 3-5 miles from where it was just spotted earlier today. Not that small!
Honestly not sure how I'd react to seeing this guy/gal in my backyard. Sheet terror, probably.
This is now a BEAR WATCH account for the foreseeable future. Nothing but bear content.
"Recent reports of bears in backyards have officials reminding residents of North Carolina’s capital city to bear-proof around their homes and to exercise safety if they encounter a bear."…

The bright side of owning this MG is that I'm learning a TON about how cars work.
Got the MG running again all by myself and now I feel like
However (sigh), this fix is only temporary. Appears the carb needs to be rebuilt, and that is way - WAY - above my pay grade. Sigh.

"Greenville's Spin Away From Textiles Brings Million-Dollar Condos"…
"Greenville... has transformed from a city once reliant on the textile industry into one with a diverse economy and vibrant downtown that's lured major companies..."
"As the city’s textile industry started to diminish, auto manufacturing began replacing those lost jobs from companies such as French tiremaker Michelin and German automaker BMW."
"Michelin brings in people from France, BMW draws from Germany and TD Bank, based in Toronto, brings executives from Canada. The buyers of the pricey townhouses downtown are from cities such as Chicago and Washington, mostly retirees or people buying second homes"

The results are... OK. Not great. If I were Bezos, otoh, it would be all Alexa did.
Seriously, why has so-called "science" NOT made a supercomputer AI that does nothing but compute hypothetical fight scenarios?
I swear if we someday discover tjay the Billionaire Tech Bros keeping this breakthrough technology all to themselves, I'm gonna go Full Bernie on them.

🚨OUT TODAY🚨: a new @CatoInstitute paper from @inumanak & me on arguably the worst US trade law on the books (and the basis for much of Trump's trade mayhem):

"Protectionism or National Security? The Use and Abuse of Section 232"…
As someone who litigated several Section 232 cases in my former life, lemme tell ya: it is AWFUL - an affront to basic economics, separation of powers, good government, & the rule of law.

Trump deserves blame for abusing it, but it's the LAW that lets him get away with it.
What other law can a president basically tell his Commerce Dept to find imported cars (CARS) to be a "national security" threat; refuse to publish (defying Congress) the report justifying the claim; & repeatedly threaten economy-cripplin tariffs based on said secret report?

Really good @WSJ deep-dive into China's growing bureaucracy problem…

"local officials have become so focused on pleasing Mr. Xi and fulfilling party mandates that they can neglect their basic duties as public servants, sometimes with dire results"
"Party observers say the drive for centralization in a sprawling nation too often fosters bureaucratic inertia, duplicity and other unproductive practices that are aimed at satisfying Beijing and protecting careers but threaten to undermine Mr. Xi’s goals."
"Historians say Mao was so troubled by the [box-ticking] phenomenon that he repeatedly launched campaigns to shake up what he saw as an ossifying and increasingly self-serving party bureaucracy. Today, under Mr. Xi, the problem appears to have returned with a vengeance."
