Mendocino, California, a popular tourist spot, is running out of water.
Some hotels are charging extra for daily linen replacement and hot tub use, and other businesses are considering portable toilets to conserve water.

Interesting how we depend on science for some things but deny others because some blond guy with bobby pins in his hair can determine health care choices for his obsequious sycophants.
It’s been a long time since I studied economics in college, though I’ve never abandoned my interest in the topic, and, I must say, I’ve seen no better explanation of Reaganomics than the one offered by the character Quark as he refuses the post of Grand Nagus of Feringinar in the penultimate episode of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine.
