Red States

needle The U.S. South is some piece of work. But, for some unfathomable reason, it now seems to be home to sparks of actual progress and civilization. Public enterprise has happened there in a couple of meaningful ways.

Lafayette, Louisiana has fought off lawsuits and built itself its own communications infrastructure.

Now, it seems that Somerset, Kentucky is about to start operating its own gas stations.

  1. It’s not the South in quite the same way, but the city council in Dallas, Texas finally voted to save millions (literally, millions per year) by no longer pumping nuclear waste (fluoride) into their drinking water.

    Naturally, they’re under sustained assault from the AMA and other externality salesmen, but the millions of dollars of raw waste may actually drive them to a tiny regional victory.
