This is news! Texas Land Commissioner George P. Bush is asking Texas Republicans to support the Republican presidential nominee — though he has not endorsed Donald Trump, the Texas Tribune reports.
A couple of week ago Southwest Airlines had a major “glitch,” this week it is Delta’s turn. Computers go down locally frequently, but worldwide? That is pretty hard to do.
This is not a political article, its about how so many places look the same, but to me it says a lot about what has happened to our cultural, to our mores. Too many people falling in line to become part of the in crowd, even when the in crowd is not something that is good to emulate. This is one of the almost innocuous examples; this is another example.
Obamacare just keeps causing problems and insurance companies just keep bowing out. Aetna is not alone. UnitedHealth Group and Humana have recently made announcements in a similar vein.

Isn’t the much more interesting question how did pop culture get so awful? Major film studios producing nothing but comic book movies with budgets of hundreds of millions of dollars? A national newspaper defending them without seeing the irony of how intellectually bankrupt the industry has become? This isn’t the 21st century I was promised”.
