Thought for the day

"There will be, in the next generation or so, a pharmacological method of making people love their servitude, and producing dictatorship without tears, so to speak, producing a kind of painless concentration camp for entire societies, so that people will in fact have their liberties taken away from them, but will rather enjoy it." -- Aldous Huxley - "The Ultimate Revolution". Aldous Huxley's speech at Berkeley Language Center, www.informationclearinghouse.info. March 20, 1962.

While everyone is fixated on the disgraced founder of FTX, Sam Bankman-Fried, and his collapsed cryptocurrency exchange, another Silicon Valley fraudster, Theranos CEO Elizabeth Holmes, will be sentenced in a federal courthouse Friday, putting an end to the years-long saga of her phony blood-testing startup. 

If the 2022 midterm election taught Americans anything, it’s that every vote counts.

That lesson comes after many political races have come down to only a handful of votes or fewer — and now another Democrat has eeked out a victory after a recount.

Arizona GOP gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake does not plan to go quietly into the night, at least not until her legal options are explored.

As of this writing, less than 17,000 votes separate Lake and Democrat candidate Katie Hobbs, which is .06 percent of the votes cast with ballots still being counted.

An automatic recount is triggered at when the difference is .05 percent or less.
