Re: “Supreme Court chides Court of Appeals again

If the justices don't like their pay, they can quit. Nobody is keeping them from leaving. I'm sure there will be others eager to work for that kind of money.

Re: “Congressman-elect Greg Gianforte pleads guilty to assaulting reporter

Wasn't Trump falling all over himself revealing classified material in the oval office to the Russians.
That's exhibiting pretty friendly behavior toward to a country that invaded Ukraine, is helping Assad and hacked our election.

Re: “Dreaming of university independence on guns

Those are all illegal acts anywhere in Arkansas it's not the same thing.

But U of A can restrict drinking alcohol and ban smoking cigarettes which are both legal. Why not guns too.

Re: “The U.S., Nicaragua and Syria against the world

Well, Baker
He was talking about the cracks appearing in the ice shelf. It's a nature event, but the rate at which it's happening is not.
Larsen C has a bunch of cracks. All ice shelves do. This particular crack has been around since at least the 1960s. The unusual part is that in 2014, this crack and only this crack started growing in spurts. Why?

Re: “The U.S., Nicaragua and Syria against the world

baker,
Your own article said it was a mystery, but you proclaim "seems that global warming was not the cause"

your own articled says
"Luckman says climate change is certainly influencing this region. Larsen C used to have two neighbors to the north, Larsen A and Larsen B. As the air and water warmed, those ice shelves started melting and then splintered into shards in 1995 and 2002."

"The unusual part is that in 2014, this crack and only this crack started growing in spurts. Why? "Well, that is a little bit of a mystery and that's why it drew itself to our attention," says Luckman."

Global warming is speeding up all these natural events. The earth can't keep up. In fact scientist have been alarmed at the acceleration rate of the melting.
But go ahead bury your head in the sand.

Re: “The U.S., Nicaragua and Syria against the world

Actually Baker,
The Larsen B event had no precedent since the end of the last Ice Age some 12,000 years ago, according to glaciologists.
Ice shelves break up naturally, but global warming is thought to have accelerated the process.
Larsen C is a lot larger than B.
The West Antarctic ice sheet holds enough frozen water to raise the average sea level by about six metres (20 feet).
But go ahead make up your own facts. We will know who to blame.
