The EU

Google says the EU requires a notice of cookie use (by Google) and says they have posted a notice. I don't see it. If cookies bother you, go elsewhere. If the EU bothers you, emigrate. If you live outside the EU, don't go there.

The Obama Presidential Center

For John, BLUFThis is more a monument to the individual than a true research center.  Nothing to see here; just move along.

From The College Fix, by Mr Drew van Voorhis (San Diego State University), 29 January 2018.

Here is the lede plus one:

Faculty at the University of Chicago have joined a growing chorus of Chicagoans voicing alarm and anger over the planned Obama Presidential Center, set to be built in a sprawling historic park in the south side of the city.

Residents and environmentalists alike have signaled frustration and opposition to the plans to build the large, five-building mecca in the heart of the beloved, 140-year-old park flanking Lake Michigan — and many faculty at the private university located blocks away from the site agree.

First off, this is not a standard Presidential Library.  This Presidential Center, like President Hoover's Library, will operate outside the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA).  Do we see a pattern here?  Maybe the less we know the better.

Someone I know questioned the volume of visitors, given it is on the South Side of Chicago.  Just ask Song Writer, Jim Croce, who told us about Bad, bad Leroy BrownYou remember.

My recommendation is that it be established in Hawaii, The Aloha State, President Obama's place of birth, where it could become a part of the State's tourism industry.

Hat tip to the InstaPundit.
