A few random shots:
- New York mayor Micheal Bloomberg thinks that having illegal drugs in your system when you die undoes the heroism of an NYPD detective who was one of the first on the scene at Ground Zero.
- Find out the salary of every single employee of the City of Chicago or Cook County.
- Scott H. Greenfield notes that it’s “better to be gouged and fed then to not be fed at all” but then gets snarky about a bank that loans money to very poor people at 200% interest, calling it “taking advantage of the misery of others for fun and profit.” Unless the bank is preventing poor people from getting money in other ways, I don’t see how this is their fault. The problem is that people are so bad off that they need loans at 200%, not that they’re getting the loans.
