The [Monday] Papers

"Lineage is the biggest player in the country's cold storage industry, a business consumers seldom see but one that plays a crucial role in keeping edible fare fresh from the time it's harvested until it reaches the kitchen fridge," the Los Angeles Times reports.

"Now, changes in the way people shop have the 'cold chain' scrambling to keep up. Consumers, particularly younger buyers, are turning more and more to online grocery shopping and prepared meal services, which means more refrigerated warehouses are needed to keep that stuff cold.

"To keep pace, the country will need 100 million square feet of new cold storage warehouse space over the next five years, according to a report by real estate brokerage CBRE."

3. Capital One.

"The home of the first capital of Illinois from 1818 until 1820, Kaskaskia has been severed from the rest of the state for more than 135 years, when the Mississippi River took the path of least resistance and cut a new route to the east, leaving the town stranded alone on the west side of the river," the Tribune reports.

"The once-powerful epicenter of Illinois government has been even more isolated from the rest of the country since April, when floodwaters swamped the lone link to the island. For months, as the waters of the Mississippi swelled and persistent rainstorms pounded the area, Kaskaskia has been inaccessible except by boat or, when the waters slowly receded this summer, giant pickup trucks with suspensions tall enough to traverse several feet of water on the low bridge over the old river channel that connects the island to Missouri."

4. Horse Sense.

I asked our man on the rail Tom Chambers if this was true:

Horses typically sleep part of the night standing up and part lying down.

His reply:

Yes. It can be stressful for a horse to lie down because of all the weight. And some horses have a hard time getting back up. So they sleep standing up. That's why it's important for a horse to have four healthy legs.

That's what was so unusual about Seabiscuit. He would sleep laying down for 8-10 hours straight.

Same for Mr. Ed:

5. Labor Gains.

"Liz Shuler and Sara Nelson have many things in common - both are from Oregon, both are in their 40s, and both are prominent labor leaders. Shuler is secretary-treasurer of the AFL-CIO, the nation's largest labor federation, Nelson is president of the Association of Flight Attendants," the Guardian reports.

"Another thing they have in common: both hope to succeed Richard Trumka someday as the AFL-CIO's president.

"After decades of being held back, women have only recently risen to the top ranks of America's labor unions. For a woman to head the AFL-CIO and become the nation's most powerful, visible labor leader would be 'rather extraordinary.' as one historian put it."

6. USA! USA! USA!

"Since the election of President Trump, Republican lawmakers in at least 18 states have introduced or voted on legislation to curb mass protests in what civil liberties experts are calling "an attack on protest rights throughout the states," the Washington Post reports.
