UPDATE When the money would better spent on much more pressing infrastructure needs




Top headline from The New York Times, 8/6/2018
“The report shows us what we already knew: The Trump administration put almost zero thought into the construction of this wall other than how it will play in the news cycle,” Mr. Vela said.
Bottom headline from 24/7 Wall St. 1/22/2017.
Figures about how much money the U.S. needs to rebuild the infrastructure of its brides, tunnels, roads, and airports differs wildly. In 2013, the American Society of Civil Engineers put the needed investment at $3.6 trillion between when its report was published and 2020. An official federal government report estimates the number is $808.2 billion.
The 2017 ASCE report card has since been made avalable.

Insider trading charges against Chris Collins might put New York's 27th red congressional district into play


Or not.  

Collins defeated the 1-term Democratic incumbent Kathy Hochul in 2014.  Since then Collins has romped.


Chris Collins Was Just Indicted. Can Democrats Flip His New York Seat?  (The New York Times, 8/8/2018)
Mr. Collins, who was the first congressman to endorse Donald J. Trump in 2016, is running for his fourth term in a Buffalo-area seat that is one of the most conservative in New York. Mr. Trump carried the district with nearly 60 percent of the vote, his best showing in the state, and Democrats had harbored little hope of unseating Mr. Collins amid the broader fall House battleground. 
But the indictment of Mr. Collins is expected to change that.

The latest redistricting made the 27th much friendlier to the GOP.

UPDATE: July 2018 is hottest month ever in California


5 degrees above the 20th-century average.

California Swelters Under All-Time Record Heat In July.  (KPIX San Francisco, 8/8/2018)
Death Valley set a new tentative world’s record for hottest month anywhere on Earth. The monthly average was a scorching 108.1 degrees Fahrenheit. 
The daily high was 127 degrees Fahrenheit four days in a row in July, the National Park Service said. And sunset didn’t bring much relief. Temperatures failed to drop below 100 for 10 nights in the month — with the lows not coming until usually around 5 a.m., just before sunrise.

Flynn, who has lost four previous elections, has refused bipartisan calls for him to drop out of the race because of his legal work defending the Milwaukee Archdiocese against priest abuse allegations in the 1990s.

Greetings from Trump's America: Humboldt County, Iowa, which used to have 257,545 acres of prairie


Bachelor farmer brothers leave behind a surprising gift that's now blooming in Iowa.  (Des Moines Register, 6/25/2018)
Iowa has lost 99.9 percent of its native prairie and 89 percent of its wetlands to development, most of which has been agricultural. In Humboldt County, there were 257,545 acres of prairie in 1859, but in a 2009 state survey, there was none. 
Who wants prairie here when farmland is going for $8,000-$10,000 an acre? Few conservation agencies can afford to buy it.

Population peaked in 1940

Greetings from Trump's America: Webster County, Iowa, where local officials feel the effects of GOP cartoon conservative principles


Here's how the Iowa Legislature can help Main Street Iowa: Leave it alone.  (Des Moines Register, 10/18/2017)
Like their Wisconsin counterparts, the Iowa GOP gives lip service to cartoon conservative principles.  Cities like Fort Dodge aren’t asking for a bailout, however. Just the opposite. Fort Dodge Mayor Matt Bemrich was among those repeating the “leave us alone” mantra: Don’t deprive us of property tax revenue — thanks to the cut in commercial property taxes — and then threaten to take away the backfill paid to offset that loss in revenue. Don’t preach the virtues of local control and then give us little say in the siting of hog confinements.

Population peaked in 1970
