    Unprecedented water restrictions ordered as MWD declares water shortage emergency. [Read free here]
    Los Angeles Times (Moderate Left) • Factual Grade 81% • 6 min read

    Cities and smaller water suppliers that get water from the [Metropolitan Water District of Southern California] are required to start restricting outdoor watering to one day a week, or to find other ways to cut usage to a new monthly limit. The restrictions will apply to about 6 million people.
    The outdoor watering restrictions will apply to areas that depend on water from the State Water Project. The State Water Project [transports] water to approximately 27 million Californians. After a record dry start to 2022, officials slashed the project’s expected deliveries this year to just 5% of full allocations.
    Gov. Gavin Newsom in July called for Californians to voluntary reduce water use by 15%, but the state remains far from that goal. [Some MWD board members] said they support the restrictions but also stressed it was important to help areas that rely heavily on the State Water Project to get access to other sources of water, such as Colorado River water. The Colorado River is in a first-ever shortage.

Should descendants of slaves receive reparations?

Context: Harvard sets up $100 million reparations fund.


No - I think that we should focus on developing a system that helps all people on a path for success. This would disproportionately help those who are impoverished from such circumstances without someone having to litigate ancestry. For example, a national excellent first-time homebuyer program that requires $0 down and has very low rates, housing programs to build houses with primary residence clauses, universal healthcare, stronger anti-trust policies, free childcare, free birth control, etc.

Yes - Imagine all the pay for your life's labor, used to build up another family instead. Generations later, your fa...

Unsure - I'm not against the concept of reparations. I am against the taxpayers being the ones who pay. If we have the ability to track the des...
