The Rundown - Thursday, May 11, 2017: Trump sows chaos; Civil asset forfeiture; Should we really recycle?; Where's that hospital fee money?

The firing of James Comey is blowing up on the Trump administration and threatens to hobble it for months. The problem is not that Comey was fired; it is how he was fired. 

I write about the White House chaos in my piece for the American Spectator today:

Some important reporting by the Washington Post here:

Civil asset forfeiture is a travesty. At 6:36, we'll talk with Allison Daniel of the Institute for Justice about a case she's dealing with right now in which the government took the life savings of a family who were operating a legal business, and tried to keep the money even after never filing any criminal charges.

At 7:06 AM, we talk with Prof Thomas Kinnaman, the chairman of the Economics Department at Bucknell University about recycling. Is it a good idea? Is it good for the environment? The economy? Or is it more like a cult? And how about differences between various products that can be recycled?

At 7:36, we talk with Denver Post reporter John Frank about his interesting new article regarding Colorado's "hospital provider fee". Why does it seem like Colorado health insurance purchasers haven't gotten anything for our billion dollars?
