Re: “Shannon Hills mayor arrested

"extract the pound of flesh"

I suspect the landlord typically just wants the tenant to live up to the lease that they signed.

This guy may have crossed the line, but so did the tenant. If one agrees to pay rent, pay the damn rent. Landlord probably has a bank waiting on the money.

Re: “Leslie Rutledge again rejects ballot proposal to increase minimum wage

Was he asking for a 40% increase in minimum wage over 4 years?

Re: “Shannon Hills mayor arrested

distress
the seizure of goods as security for the performance of some legal obligation (e.g. where a landlord distrains on his tenant's goods and chattels for non-payment of rent).

Bloggers, is this legal here?

Re: “Supreme Court decision paves way for states to legalize sports betting

EVERY dollar you put in the stock market is not (historically) a bet.

If you buy a DOW index fund and leave it there for 10 years or more, you will make money. There has NEVER been a 10 year period in the Dow's history when it hasn't increased. Go check.

I don't disagree with your overall point, but that example is overused. One can gamble in the stock market: true. But, one can also avoid gambling while in the stock market if that is the goal.

Hell, buy a ticket to a movie and gamble that you get your money's worth. Same can be said for dinner tonight. But, not for EVERY dollar in the market.
