I've been waiting for an article like this to show up, making the grizzly delisting a Trump thing with Democrats opposed.
Fun fact: it was under the Obama administration that the delisting process began over a year ago. The Trump administration just finished it out.
Anything the media can do to stir up sentiment against Trump, they will. This is a great example- they omitted the fact that delisting started under Obama. Why do that? So then they could frame it as an unpopular Trump decision, with people opposed to it.
There have been hundreds of compounds that gave shown great promise for treating types of cancer that haven't ultimately panned out, as treating cancer under controlled curcumstances isn't actually all that notable.
I'll let Randall Munroe's popular xkcd webcomic bring home the point:
Granted, this compound isn't "common" in the usual sense, but the point stands...
Should I ask why people live in these areas that could flood?
No, because (no offense intended-really!) it's a dumb question. It's like asking why people could live where there could be bad weather or earthquakes or liberals. Just facts of life. Nowhere is 100% safe from disaster. Given the mountainous but dry-ish nature of much of the west, there's an enormous number of reservoirs to catch water. Practical considerations mean they tend to be concentrated in the mountains, while other practical considerations mean the towns (which are generally older than the dams)) are mostly downstream of the mountains. The only way to avoid this situation would be to abandon the western third of the United States. In making this statement I'm exaggerating surprisingly little. It just is what it is- part of living in the west. A better question would be why do people in California keep voting for idiots who'd rather spend money on solar panels and high speed rail moonshot projects than on maintaining critical infrastructure that kills people when it breaks.

For those who wondered, after doing some Google translating of various articles, yes, they were Catholic churches.
"First questioning of witnesses brought the description of a possible suspect, who made a drunken impression: To 25 Years 1,75 m tall, athletic, dark short hair, black down jacket, skater jeans, white sneakers. This person was observed by three witnesses at two locations" (Google translate)
After reading 5 or 6 articles, it looks like their top suspect is a drunk white guy. Probably not Islamists after all. Probably just one of their best buddies, a Godless atheist Leftist. They both hate Christians...
Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience. -C.S. Lewis
Toss in Islam as the source of what's 'good' for its victims, and you have yourselves the new wave of theocratic autocracies, the fruits of the Arab Spring.
Mubarak was the robber Lewis' robber baron, and, more importantly, one who was friendly to American interests. And yet Obama supported his ouster in favor of the Muslim Brotherhood and its religious self-righteousness and hunger for absolute control and loss of freedom and rights.
I feel immensely sorry for the Copts. I guess at this point they should probably all just GTFO of Egypt while before they're slaughtered at Morsy's command.
It does infect humans (people exposed seroconverted), but remains asymptomatic. Or at least it has so far. Perhaps a little mutation or a close relative floating around somewhere in the forest in the Philippines might show up and ruin the party. Or possibly from Indonesia (detected there also). Or from Italy (flew in with some monkeys). Oh, and did I mention that it's been detected in pigs too, and that it appears to have been transmitted from an infected pig to a worker on a farm?
What's worse than an airborne filovirus? One that's not picky about hosts and carriers and already has 4 stamps on its passport...
