Something to Know - 30 April

Jim Morin
1.  Fracking.  Michael Bloomberg former stem of the Big Apple and current gun-regulator fame, tries hard to seek common ground on Fracking.   Go ahead and read this, but I still have grave reservations (an Indian Cemetery?) that the "fluids shot at high pressure underground" is too cavalier of a dismissal of the process.   What is the chemical make up and content of this "liquid"?.  Also, we can't really tell where the liquid goes after it is shot, and what becomes of the space in the ground after the process.  Every fracking site is different from others, in most instances, and there is no assurance that something could go wrong.   Also, whose land is this any way, and if something goes wrong, who is accountable, and who pays, and does bankruptcy absolve any horrible outcomes?:

2.  Toyota is going to fold its tent in Torrance, California and move to Texas.  This opinion writer is not too happy about the reasoning.  If I was as dumb as a Pedernales Possum, I might even be pissed enough to smash and burn the Prius that I just bought:,0,2293207.story#axzz30OGC1zSP

What's more important than who's going to be the first black manager is who's going to be the first black sports editor of the New York Times.
