The East Lansing saga continues – MichCapCon filed an FOIA request to obtain emails related to the East Lansing / Country Mill interaction. Not a lot that is brand new here, most remarkable thing I saw actually was EL’s mayor apparently wondering if Country Mill would be willing to *sell apples* to a same-sex couple at market. To be fair it appears to be a question – but it’s also about a distinction that has only been explained a thousand times in similar cases from where I’m standing, anyway. It’s a cultural hot button issue and yet clearly (and this is hardly the only example) people in positions are power are largely ignorant of the thinking of Christians on this topic.
Also – why did MichCapCon have to file this request? Do genuinely local media outlets care that little? Maybe I missed it, but it seems not uncommon on stories like this they you get better reporting from non-local courses. A prophet is not without honor except in his hometown.

How many people realize the helium is a non-renewable natural resource, very important for running superconducting magnets (if you’ve ever had an MRI, you’ve probably been in one). And the blockade of Qatar is restricting the world supply.
Reminder that the Southern Poverty Law Center has no credibility left as any sort of non-partisan opponents of hate and the media (and everyone) should stop treating them as if they do. It is beyond absurd to label the mild-mannered lawyers of Alliance Defending Freedom, a group that has now won 51 First Amendment cases at the Supreme Court, a hate group. Beyond absurd.
But I want Uber for planes.
A widely shared article this past week – Seattle hiked its minimum wage to $13/hr, study finds this caused the take-home pay for low-wage workers to *shrink* by an average of 6.6% because of layoffs and fewer hours worked.
