Looks like breast of chicken.

El Chapo’s family to compensate those who lost relatives in botched arrest. Isn’t that sweet.

Not youtube, but this interview with Charlie Munger is good. I thought this part, at about 8 mins in, was funny:

Interviewer: What do you think about the proposals put forward by AOC and Elizabeth Warren that would, sort of, greatly address [income inequality]?

Munger: Well, I don't consider those two, necessarily, the best prescribers in the world. They're kinda likable. I particularly kinda like Elizabeth Warren. She's got a manner that appeals to me, but I don't like her attitude. I don't think she's studied Adam Smith enough.

Interviewer: And what about AOC? Do you have any take on her?

Munger: I don't think she knows who Adam Smith was.

Munger: If you have unlimited immigration from one country to another, that causes a lot of strains. Look at Germany. Merkel brought in more immigration than her people.. than she wanted. She was leading a parade, and she looked back, and nobody was following. Very few people want unlimited immigration of a different culture. We made it work in America, but we had a vacant continent to work on. It was easy. Vacant and rich. Oil and minerals, wonderful soil.

Interviewer: Should we still be letting immigrants into this country?

Munger: I think we should have way more control over our borders than we do. Donald Trump is right on that, and I think the Democrats are committing suicide by being so... They hate him so much that they're against him even when he's right.

Munger: Who would have guessed the Chinese Communists would have improved their big country as much as they have in the last 30 years?

Interviewer: Did that surprise you?

Munger: Well, they didn't the first 20 years. They had the Cultural Revolution. It was crazy. And now they have one of the greatest success records in the history of mankind. I don't know about you, but I did not predict it.

Interviewer: So what is the secret to China's success?

Munger: They copied Singapore. Remember, the Chinese leader said I don't care whether the cat is black or white, I just care that it catches mice. And they copied a very wonderful, famous Chinese man in Singapore, and lo and behold, they found the right Chinese leadership outside China, which amuses me. But he was Chinese. Look at the way it worked, in the whole history of the world, no nation that big has advanced that fast. And they did it by having a bunch of poor people save half their income. They didn't use the wealth of the rich world to get ahead, they used the savings of poor people. I am a huge admirer of what the Chinese have accomplished. And if you ask me who is the one man who did the most for China, it was Lee Kuan Yew of Singapore. They copied him.
