Well, well. Maybe it wasn’t such a good idea to rudely ambush Vice President-Elect Pence at the show on Friday. Via BizPac Review. The cast of Broadway’s “Hamilton” rudely lectured Vice-President elect Mike Pence on Friday but it is he, and Congressional Republicans, who might get the last laugh. Earlier this year Broadway producers began lobbying to extend a tax deduction given to investors in their productions for the first year of a show that allows them to pay taxes only after a show turns a profit, Bloomberg News reported in June. Now Congress is set to vote on whether or not to extend the break and many Republicans are not supportive of the idea. “It’s crazy,” Pennsylvania Republican Representative...

Karma! Via Daily Caller. The world’s largest solar energy plant known for incinerating birds just got a taste of its own medicine. A fire at the plant Thursday morning, which may have been caused by “misaligned” mirrors used to reflect sunlight at boiler towers, broke out in the facility’s interior — literally scorching parts of the plant. NRG Energy, the company operating the Ivanpah solar plant in southern California, was forced to shut down one of its generating towers and is investigating if mirrors, or heliostats, failed and torched a boiling tower. Now, the plant, which got $1.6 billion from the Obama administration, will only be able to generate electricity from one of its three towers….. This only adds to...
