Extra, Extra

Separate Reality: Close to 1,000 migrant children separated by Trump yet to be reunited with parents. If you missed it back in August, here’s the most exhaustive coverage of the family separations from Caitlin Dickerson in The Atlantic: We need to take away children.

+ Payback Time: “The Republican-led House of Representatives voted on Thursday to pass a resolution to remove Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar from the powerful House Foreign Affairs Committee.”

+ Hindenburg Disaster: “Hindenburg isn’t exposing the alleged scam purely as a public service, however. It holds short positions in the Adani Group, which means that Hindenburg will gain financially if Adani’s shares fall. The short seller has a track record of blowing the whistle on corporate fraud around the world, from the United States to China.” How Asia’s ex-richest man lost nearly $50 billion in just over a week.

+ Around We Go: “With the deal, Washington has stitched the gap in the arc of US alliances stretching from South Korea and Japan in the north to Australia in the south.
The missing link had been the Philippines, which borders two of the biggest potential flashpoints – Taiwan and the South China Sea.” US secures deal on Philippines bases to complete arc around China.

+ Sink Whole: “Somewhere in the South Atlantic ocean right now, a 34,000-ton, 870-ft. aircraft carrier is floating aimlessly on the waves. The vessel, caught in an international dispute over its toxic contents, is about to become one of the biggest pieces of trash in the ocean.” No one will let Brazil dismantle it’s potentially toxic aircraft carrier. So they’re gonna just sink it instead.

+ Say What? An L.A. County police department is facing intense criticism after a video surfaced of two officers fatally shooting a double amputee moving away from them.

+ Counting Your Chickens: NYT: “Which shortage came first: the chicks or the eggs? Spooked by a huge spike in egg prices, some consumers are taking steps to secure their own future supply. Demand for chicks that will grow into egg-laying chickens — which jumped at the onset of the global pandemic in 2020 — is rapid again as the 2023 selling season starts, leaving hatcheries scrambling to keep up.” (Mixing news with cheap puns is really inappropriate!)
