  • It is quite interesting that Governor Mills would be supporting an “emergency bill” that would exempt land-based aquaculture facilities from Maine’s laws . . .
  • We read that Bernie Madoff died. He and Donald Trump were arguably the two greatest con men in history, and it might be profitable to compare . . .
