If a copper mine shuts down in Chile the price of copper goes up, giving other producers an incentive to produce more copper, consumers an incentive to consume less. Seen from the individual's point of view, the effect on the market is an accident—indeed, an undesirable one. Producing more makes prices go down, which is not what the producer wants to happen. The gain to the individual actor is a measure of the social gain from his action. There are some cases which look very similar but are actually quite different—where the link between what it pays an actor to do and the benefit his action produces is in some sense an accident. One example is speculation. A successful speculator buys things when they are cheap, sells when they are expensive, and so both makes a profit for himself and smooths out price movements. The latter effect can be a very large benefit to other people. Unlike the usual case, however, the profit to the speculator is not a measure of the benefit produced. Family traditions can be helpful things. They draw a family together with ties of familiarity and fun. Year after year, they create happy memories. They give children the rare experience of their parents' undivided and extended attention. They help define a family culture, a sense that this is my family and this is how we do things. They bind a family together, provide a feeling of stability and belonging, and are a wonderful opportunity for joy. I don't know if this is part of some overall plan that involves mowing the whole thing and starting over every few years, but right now the plants are nearly twice my height. If they leave it, they'll eventually have a new forest area: When the meadow was more open we used to see foxes and rabbits. While I was there yesterday I saw grasshoppers and butterflies: The butterfly above wasn't actually in the meadow area. The meadow butterflies were too busy for me to catch. The butterfly in this photo was in the forest area. Normally, travel broadens the mind but what about visiting a totalitarian state? American tourists pass by the Ministry of the Interior in Cuba Traveling to Cuba under the Castro regime should be a subject for serious reflection and not to be taken lightly for a number of reasons that are not immediately evident. First and foremost the tourism industry in Cuba is run by the military and intelligence services. These reflections would also be useful for visits to other totalitarian regimes because they use many of the same tactics. Visitors are often kept in areas geared to tourists providing them a Potemkin village experience. However that does not mean that information on health and security will be accurate and it can still place tourists at risk. In the case of both Cuba and North Korea, businessmen who have engaged the regime in business ventures are rotting in prison. Some weeks ago I received this Scott Safari Facemask from Motorcycle House. They asked me if I wanted to do a review of one of their products and in return I could keep the product. Had to think about it for a while but I decided to give it a try. I always wanted to try on a Scott Facemask so this was a good opportunity. One observation was striking. They called their rush-to-judgment support of campus demonstrators who had widely distributed a “wanted poster" branding the team as “rapists” the "Listening Statement. It occurs that such language is just the terminology that would be used by a group of self-important, pompous, wannabe-revolutionary fools who might dream of sending out "Popular Liberation Front Statements" on a clandestine Soviet crank-powered shortwave transmitter with a wire aerial strung across the jungle treetops. This rush-to-judgement, hang-them-then-hold-a-trial attitude seems not just accepted at universities like Duke, but defended and applauded. No "Apology Statement" was ever issued, even after the students were found innocent and the prosecutor jailed. These programs are presented in coordination with the Washington County Bar Association, but membership in the Association is not required for attendance. m. N. ". A Marathon man was arrested after he damaged surveillance cameras at the Trailerama Trailer Park laundromat in Marathon, and tried to steal money from the bill changing machine inside. m. Saturday as he destroyed the cameras both inside and outside the laundromat using a hammer. When the trailer park owner noticed the cameras were not working, he notified the person who works on them to find out what happened. That person accessed the camera footage and saw what happened. The owner then called the Sheriff’s Office just after midnight Sunday. Deputy Ben Elmore responded to take a report. He found evidence that Perez had, while in the laundromat, tried to pry open the bill changing machine, but was not successful.
Deputy Elmore and Sgt.went for a ride, Chance likes demands a ride just about every day. Far Guy was off doing “stuff” with his classmates so we did our own thing…our own thing is Chance hanging his head out the window and me looking for photo opportunities. .
