U.S. clothing manufacturing?  But at what price, for the retail goods?

 
*shrug* probably twice what anyone thinks it should be, except for his market, which is vast and willing to pay.

You and me both. Definitely not on my radar as far back as, say, Labor Day.

There's always been some undercurrent of that notion. Doesn't seem like he's outgoing enough to get the votes tho. Maybe Kim will do it.

So the vacant property on the main highway into town from "my" direction has been bought! It's right next to the FedEx facility, and they're going to be manufacturing designer clothing. This will be Kanye West's second venture in this town in the past 3 months...
 
Y'know, I didn't have really high hopes that his moving up there would turn out to be a good thing, but I was wrong. Dude is helping out, no question.

Yep. He's apparently bought some of the Flitner ranch over by Shell. Which is much more attractive than the land he bought here, IMO. I'm sure he's got someone telling him to sock some cash away in land so that's fine. At some point he's going to be unwelcome with some locals, though, if he keeps buying up land. No idea if he plans to allow access or not. But putting in any sort of manufacturing will win him some fans.

They bought a new house, moved in, and I'd see them in the summer, but turns out they lived in Hawaii in the winter. Because if you live in Wyoming for 6 months and 1 day, you can claim it as your primary residence and Wyoming doesn't have an income tax. If you have enough money to keep two houses, that probably does mean something significant. Anyway, ol' Walt just passed away a month or two ago. He was 93; my boss' back of the envelope guess puts his net worth at over a billion, but says the trust(s) he set up are being challenged by at least one son. We'll see how that goes: Walt was a CPA.

But on the good news front, Mrs. Walt had me come over and work on Walt's computer to get rid of/streamline some of the cables and nonsense he had, and help her stop a lot of emails he got. She gave me his computer speakers, which I didn't really need since we have a set at home that sound good, and at work I keep the $5 junky ones turned down too low to matter. But these are Bose and damn. I'll bet I can use them a bit louder without bothering the office since they sound so nice.

the bad news:  people easily succumb to their evolutionary negativity bias

the good news: there's plenty of good data/evidence to reverse it

wide ranging thoughts on the subject

please give this a listen

Why are we so gloomy about the world?

Statistics from around the world show huge improvements to our way of life, but many of us think the world is in decline. There are good reasons for this; climate change is often cited as the big one. But many of us aren’t aware of the huge strides we’ve made over the decades in reducing poverty, improving healthcare and tackling hunger. In fact, according to surveys of people in richer countries at least, the majority of people think the world is getting worse; but why? In this edition of the Why Factor, Sandra Kanthal asks if human nature is wired to fixate on the downsides of life.
