Florida bans lab-grown meat that is also a really long title that spans over three lines in the editor title bar

Today, we're breaking down the new Florida law banning lab-grown meat. Plus, a reader question about how we moderate our comments section.


Our Friday edition (which went to all subscribers) generated a huge response from readers and online commentators. I am sorting through all the emails now, but for those of you who missed it, you can read the piece here.

Also, in our Sunday podcast, Ari and I talked about the piece, made some predictions about the future of these demonstrations, debated the Electoral College, and discussed Trump's flip-flop on mail-in and absentee voting. You can listen here.

Quick hits.

  1. Rep. Henry Cuellar (D-TX) and his wife were indicted on conspiracy and bribery charges. The Justice Department alleged the couple accepted nearly $600,000 in bribes. (The indictment)
  2. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's cabinet voted unanimously to ban the Qatari-owned news outlet Al Jazeera, then raided its offices. (The ban) Meanwhile, Hamas officials claimed responsibility for several rocket attacks at the Gaza-Israel border, and Israel warned residents of Rafah to evacuate because of a pending invasion. (The latest)
  3. Hope Hicks became the first member of former President Trump's inner circle to take the stand in his New York trial, testifying that he instructed her to deny the allegations he had a sexual relationship with Stormy Daniels. (The testimony) Separately, the judge in the case fined Trump for his tenth violation of a gag order and threatened jail time for future violations.
  4. The U.S. economy added 175,000 jobs in April and unemployment ticked up from 3.8% to 3.9%. (The numbers)
  5. Canada arrested three Indian nationals in connection with the 2023 murder of a Sikh separatist leader. (The arrests)

My take.

Reminder: "My take" is a section where I give myself space to share my own personal opinion. If you have feedback, criticism, or compliments, don't unsubscribe. Write in by replying to this email, or leave a comment.

  • It’s overly restrictive government policy, and I don’t think it’s ultimately helpful to Floridians.
  • I personally think lab-grown meat is a little weird, and I don’t think it’s a real threat to the industry.
  • Other personal choices that are part of a trend of more tech skepticism are much more likely to disrupt the Big Ag business.
