The Rundown - Tuesday, April 4, 2017: Driverless cars will impact you more and sooner than you think; Lowering the penalty for minor sexting; Mike Pence's rules for marriage

This video is a year old. The concepts still apply, but I bet even this TED speaker will be surprised how soon driverless cars become a major force in American life.

At 8:06 we'll talk with Randal O'Toole of the Cato Institute about the pros and cons up the upcoming nearly driverless world. (Hint: Randal thinks there are far far more pros than cons.)

In addition to my interview, here's another great discussion with Randal about driverless cars:

At 7:06 AM, we'll talk to Colorado State Rep Pete Lee (D-CO Springs/Manitou Springs) about a bill he's sponsoring in the State House of Representatives which would create a couple of new crimes relating to sharing or receiving explicit pictures of a minor, in particular where a minor shares with another minor. These crimes would be misdemeanors or petty offenses whereas today some of these same activities would result in felony convictions which could haunt a person for the rest of his or her life. So the new crimes are actually moving existing crimes to a lower category of crime. Based on what I know so far, I'm in favor of this.

Democrats seem to think that this means that Mike Pence is probably actually an alien, or maybe worse:

And here's the reaction of a feminist liberal who wants us to think she's a rational moderate:

And here's today's Ross Report:

A resurfaced 15-year-old news report quotes then-Congressman Mike Pence as saying that to protect his marriage, he won’t have dinner alone with a woman who’s not his wife. Cue the faux moral outrage from the left, such as Bette Midler and the New Yorker’s Jia Tolentino, who suggests that she’s fair and balanced because she was raised in a Southern Baptist community in Texas.

But then the title of her article is “Mike Pence’s marriage and the beliefs that keep women from power.” Seriously.

Tolentino shuns what she calls “gender essentialism,” which apparently means that women are at least mostly not men, and “the abiding sense that women are sources of sexual danger”.

Now, I’m not a devout Christian and I don’t have the same views on sin that Mike Pence does. But I did make a promise to my wife when I married her, I’ve never violated that promise, and I plan never to do so.

But frankly, given what happens in the world these days, the sorts of stories of sexual harassment that have taken down far more important people than I am, I sorta think Pence has a point.
