    The link didn’t mention “oil”, but a quick search found one which did.
    https://www.washingtonpost.com/business/alaskas-oil-money-headaches-we-did-this-to-ourselves/2019/08/09/1ff03016-ba63-11e9-8e83-4e6687e99814_story.html
    I know nothing of Alaskan politics, but I’d still wager that taking down the pointy-headed liberals at the Universities is more popular than cutting the annual Dividend Payment to citizens.

    *** How Sharks Glow to Each Other Deep in the Ocean ***
    My first thought was that the scientists had better learn the mechanisms of the organic lights darned quickly, then came a second thought that the deep water sharks will likely to outlast us – the deep cold oceans may be the last of Earth’s ecosystems to vanish.

    *** Jealousy Led Montana Chemist to Taint Colleague’s Water Tests ***
    Why that woman didn’t get at least some token jail time is beyond me.

    *** Lithuanian Jews indefinitely shut community center, lone synagogue after threats ***
    IMO those Jews ought to be selling out, then moving out. If the Apartheid state was a bit concerned about their welfare, it would be urging the same thing. Maybe it wants to keep a few pre-martyrs around in case they’re needed. Encouraging the European Nazis has been a Very big mistake.

    *** Cancer patients are being denied drugs, even with doctor prescriptions and good insurance ***
    ^^^ But that insurance didn’t ensure Smith would get the drugs she needed when facing CVS Specialty Pharmacy – the pharmacy their insurance required them to use. ^^^
    Start with a Compulsory pharmacy, then arrange things so she can’t talk to a human face-to-face.
    ^^^ But customers can’t actually visit a CVS Specialty Pharmacy, according to CVS. Cancer pills are either mailed to a patient’s home or shipped to a regular CVS store for pickup. ^^^

    This was cleverly designed from the git-go. Make things as complicated as possible with everybody pointing fingers at somebody else. She’ll give up or die, and either way, their “very expensive” insurance company (“the best!”) emerges victorious. They’re winning now and will probably continue to do so in the future. With all the Fox-type propaganda hitting citizens from all directions, and the unlimited money available to buy corrupt and lazy Senators and Representatives, those of us in the bottom 99% have no chance.
