THE Nooner for August 26, 2017

How does CBD help depression?

 

Well, hello there. Frankly, my head is not in California today. Instead, I'm all in Texas. I've never lived in Texas, but it represents the core of the paternal side of my family. As I mentioned yesterday, we have a very rustic family ranch there that was bought by my grandfather and his buddies and later subdivided.

I plan to spend Christmas there with my dad and look forward to sitting outside by the fire. I don't usually agree with TX politics, but I love me some downtime with a dark sky and howling of coyotes. I'm not a big hunter, but also believe that if you are a meat-eater and advocate for non-factory farms, than there's an obligation on the consumer. And, there's nothing better than being with your dad on open land.

My aunt--who lives in my grandparents' house north of Houston--is in the direct path of the outer band that is under tornado warning. That's what keeps me attuned to CNN this morning, something I thought only POTUS did.

UC Berkeley prepares to host right-wing speakers next month
Alison Graham @
sfgate.com
One of the right-wing speakers invited to UC Berkeley to speak next month said he’s worried about violence breaking out and is urging supporters not to come out in his defense. Former Breitbart News editor Ben Shapiro said he looks forward to speaking at UC Berkeley on Sept. 14 and plans to address tribalism in the United States. Still, he has safety concerns. “I’m actively telling people not to show up to defend my free speech,” Shapiro told The Chronicle. “That’s the police’s job. If people want to come protest me, more power to you.” Shapiro is one of two conservative speakers that UC Berkeley is preparing to host at separate events next month.
