I see Arlington/CDI has quite a list of demands and they are even going after the jockeys. If Hawthorne can get along with the ITHA and jockeys, why can't Arlington?

When ye tyrant hold sway over yon glittering palace with ye $8 admission, ye $6 dogs de hot, and hearty $8 meads, all mankind needs tremble before ye, ye fearsome regent.

The latest is Chapa "has now been accused by the Texas Racing Commission of using a buzzer to shock the same horse in the same race at Sam Houston Race Park in 2014."

They should race at Hawthorne. I'm closer to Arlington, but would go to Hawthorne more in warm weather because of the dirt surface and a not too bad turf course.

Another, The Poor Used to Have the Most Opportunity in America. Now the Rich Do, with more charts:

http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/wonkblog/wp/2014/12/04/the-poor-used-to-have-the-most-opportunity-in-america-now-the-rich-do/

Another, The State of the Economy, in Eight Charts:

http://blogs.wsj.com/economics/2015/01/19/the-state-of-the-economy-in-eight-charts/?mod=e2tw

Another, America’s Wealth Gap between Middle-Income and Upper-Income Families is Widest on Record, with even more charts:

http://www.pewresearch.org/fact-tank/2014/12/17/wealth-gap-upper-middle-income/

This is a good one, As Inequality Soars, the Nervous Super Rich are Already Planning their Escapes. "With growing inequality and the civil unrest from Ferguson and the Occupy protests fresh in people’s mind, the world’s super rich are already preparing for the consequences. At a packed session in Davos, former hedge fund director Robert Johnson revealed that worried hedge fund managers were already planning their escapes. “I know hedge fund managers all over the world who are buying airstrips and farms in places like New Zealand because they think they need a getaway,” he said."

Interesting article, The Cost of a Decline in Unions:

Another, Bad News for the Class of 2008, with charts:

Last but not least, Why Salaries Don't Rise": "For a more plausible explanation, we must, as the great leaker Mark Felt once told two Post reporters, follow the money. When we do, we find that the funds corporations earmarked for their own investment, research, technology and raises during the 20th century have been redirected to shareholders in the 21st. Over the past decade, more than 90 percent of Fortune 500 corporations’ net earnings have been funneled to investors. The great shareholder shift has affected more than employees’ incomes."
