    Nope. The same way the automated bread factory has not completely replaced local bakeries. If you want uniform product at the lowest input costs then increasing automation is the way to go. An anhydrous ethanol dilution in a saline drip through an IV is the most cost effective way to get drunk, yet people still drink beer and wine. (Don't even get started on "craft brewing") Automation in agriculture will lead plant developers to produce individual cultivars that are optimized for mechanical rigors and sensor limitations. Skins will be thickened and color change at ripening selected for uniformity. While automated apple orchards will strive for the perfect consumer apple, there will be those who will sell you thin skinned, heirloom apples that have a short storage half-life for premium prices.

    Police take his horse, lock him up in the psych ward. Had he stuck to the back roads towards the center of the state he would have made it. Lots of cattle around Lake Okeechobee. XNN

    While I recognize that the NYT is the source of record on all things, here's a little something today from an industry magazine. If the incoming administration can address all of the burdensome regulations from coal seam to flue stack, that will certainly help. Using the bully pulpit to support adoption of integrated gasification combined cycle (IGCC) to utilize low grade coals (sub-bituminous and lignite) I think would make a great bookend. If you want acceleration, lay off the damn brakes and give it a little gas. XNN

    Only support it if the water, fuel, and transmission lines are cut at the border. Cal has passed restrictive environmental laws then craps in the backyards of neighboring states. This is followed up by their senators and reps dissing on how f'ed up the rest of the country's environmental regs are and basically rubbing the outlanders noses in the Callie-made sh't. IMHO XNN

    Not nearly as bad as the media pundits are making it out too be. Decay heat is less of an issue today and fuel rod removal had started earlier this year. That all adds up less energy being dumped to the water which gives the operator more time to fix the problem and restore cooling. XNN

    Easy enough way to find out. Build a solar powered unit in a cubesat and deliver to HEO to escape atmospheric drag. Monitor its orbit to see if it's altitude increases over time. XNN

    I'm pretty old school, but Webb is a bit long in the tooth. I'd prefer Rep Martha McSally. XNN

"They sell us the president the same way they sell us our clothes and our cars. They sell us every thing from youth to religion the same time they sell us our wars. I want to know who the men in the shadows are. I want to hear somebody asking them why. They can be counted on to tell us who our enemies are but theyre never the ones to fight or to die." - Jackson Browne Lives In The Balance
