Jeers: To an agriculture chemical company for spraying a weedkiller on genetically modified crops, thus killing thousands of acres of native milkweed — the only plant on which migrating Monarch butterflies will lay their eggs. Cheers to those buying GMO-free foods and planting milkweed in an attempt to prevent the extinction of this magnificent creature.

iJeers: To State District Judge Jean Boyd for burdening the taxpayers with the cost for treating Ethan Couch rather than holding him responsible, or his parents, for the deaths that Ethan caused. This just reinforces that there is special treatment for the rich.

iJeers: To those who think Precinct Line Road between Mid Cities Boulevard and Glade Road is your personal drag strip. You may notice the entire area is comprised of a series of homes and is not the place to race 100 mph. Double jeers to the motorcycle racers.

iJeers: To a technology company for dropping support for old systems. All they’re interested in is making you purchase newer ones. If they suddenly found they could no longer get parts for a 2010 Cadillac, they would be raising holy hell.
