    Mr. Wrong: We Will Suck Every Drop of Oil Out of The Ground if it's the Last Fracking Thing We Do, But I need it to Happen Faster
    Hey, do you remember Osama bin Laden? I’ll never forget that guy, for lotsa reasons, but mostly because one time he said oil should cost $144 a barrel, because if it was less than that, then the United States or The West or whatever was ripping...

    Baltimore's narcotic history dates back to the 19th-century shipping-driven boom, quietly aided by bringing Turkish opium to China
    With its longstanding reputation as a high-volume heroin town, Baltimore’s modern black-market economy is openly opiated, driving sizeable budgets for maintaining the criminal-justice apparatus to combat it. Far less appreciated, and only opaquely...
