Good Friday Links

Here are the latest stories I found interesting:

What the Spending Bill Could Mean for Minor-League Baseball PlayersThe New Yorker 

How Loyola used information and skill -- not luck -- to reach the Final Four – ESPN

Blackhawks Play 36-Year-Old Local Accountant As Emergency Goalie - Deadspin

Flint investigator says greed and fraud led to drinking water crisis – Detroit Free Press.  I'm guessing the state attorney general (who is running for governor) won't find the wrongdoing on the state level that I think probably occurred.

A Prefabricated Tragedy - Slate.  A bit simplistic in parts, but it makes some interesting points. 

The best federal agency you've never heard of: It helps manufacturers and now Trump wants to kill it - Philadelphia Inquirer

The robots are killing Tesla – Business Insider.  That's not all that's killing it, but the piece makes some very interesting points about automation.

New Ecological Economics: Superorganism and Ultrasociality-How the agricultural revolution changed the trajectory of our social and economic evolution - Evonomics

The End of Winter - The New Yorker 

More Than 75 Percent of Earth’s Land Areas Are ‘Broken,’ Major Report Finds – Motherboard

Chicago's Awful Divide - The Atlantic  

Scott Pruitt’s Dirty PoliticsThe New Yorker.  I hate this man with the energy of a thousand suns.

The Brutal Origins of Gun RightsThe New Republic 

Republicans Promised to Cut the Deficit. It’s Only Getting Worse – Bloomberg.  Continuing a nearly 40 year tradition.  There are some great charts about how "welfare reform" isn't going to close the deficit.
