This wasn’t an episode of Fear Factor or The Amazing Race. It was The Washington Post that hyped maggots as a solution to fears of a future global food crisis. Reporter Christopher Ingraham wrote about Symton BSF — a company cultivating the larvae of black soldier flies — as food for animals.

The front page of Sunday’s New York Times featured Denver-based national correspondent Julie Turkewitz demonstrating hostility to private property and the dismayingly conservative billionaires who own it in “As Billionaires Snap Up Open Land in West, Public Is Fenced Out." She sounded skeptical about this odd "private property" concept: "These new buyers have become a symbol of a bigger problem: The gentrification of the interior West....The concept of private property is embedded in the nation’s framework, and many large landowners cite this as the foundation for their holdings."
