Thursday's thoughts and links

Some musings and articles for a Thursday afternoon:

Snow issues detailed rebuttals to media coverage of the president. It's about time. If he aggressively pushes back to refute inaccuracies in coverage watch the silly poll numbers to improve.

Need another reason to despise lawyers? How about the fact that one of them took this case:
A Los Angeles psychologist who was denied a tote bag during a Mother's Day giveaway at an Angel game is suing the baseball team, alleging sex and age discrimination.

Michael Cohn's class-action claim in Orange County Superior Court alleges that thousands of males and fans under 18 were "treated unequally" at a "Family Sunday" promotion last May and are entitled to $4,000 each in damages. The targets of the suit are the team and the Corinthian Colleges. Corinthian oversees Bryman College, which has an Anaheim campus and sponsored the event, its name printed on the bags. Thousands of the red nylon bags were given to women 18 and older attending the Sunday Mother's Day game.
It's just a crappy give away! Lighten up.

Speaking of lawyers, if you want an easy answer for the cost of medical insurance consider this.
About 40 percent of the medical malpractice cases filed in the United States are groundless, according to a Harvard analysis of the hotly debated issue that pits trial attorneys against doctors, with lawmakers in the middle.
Doctors frequently order additional tests and treatments out of fear that any mistake will be treated as a potential lottery ticket rather than as a mistake.

Senate Panel Clears Kavanaugh's Appeals Court Nomination. Now that is one fast acting Senate. Only took 2 years and 10 months to vote exactly as they intended all along since he was approved in committee by 10-8 party line vote.

You ever see an item in a store and wonder why the item is even still being made? Today I was at Sears and saw they're selling the old style powerless lawn mower($89). I wonder if that is an attempt to play on the price of gas.
