Beijing  is sinking  —  literally.   Its 20 million inhabitants are using up too much of the ground water in the capital,  and different areas are subsiding at different rates,  which poses a threat to infrastructure,  most notably the high-speed rail system.   The Chinese bureaucrats are aware of the pending problem,  but who knows whether they will actually do anything about it before disaster occurs?

Mike Flynn,  the news editor at Breitbart,  has died.  He was an original hire by Andrew Breitbart,  and like Andrew,  had a large personality and a happy  warrior attitude  when it came to defending conservatism and tirelessly promoting it.   He had a  wide range  of friends and acquaintances to tap for information on topics of interest and used them.
