Image of the Day: More Economic Freedom = Higher Standard of Living

In last week's Liberty Update, we highlighted the Heritage Foundation's 2022 Index of Economic Freedom, which shows that Joe Biden has dragged the U.S. down to 22nd, our lowest rank ever (we placed 4th in the first Index in 1995, and climbed back up from 18th to 12th under President Trump).  As we noted, among the Index's invaluable metrics is how it demonstrates the objective correlation between more economic freedom and higher citizen standards of living, which this graphic illustrates:

A Houston area family is suing a neighboring little league program, alleging players were using an unlicensed and illegal bat.

Emmett Parsutt, Sr. is seeking $1 million in damages against the League City (Texas) Little League after Parsutt's son, Emmett Parsutt, Jr., was struck in the head by a line drive off a League City bat.  The 12-year-old was on the mound at the time, pitching for his Santa Fe (Texas) Little League team. According to the lawsuit, Parsutt Jr. was sent to a local hospital, where he was diagnosed with a severe concussion.  He claims he still suffers from eye twitches and persistent headaches, and will be forced to sit out from all sports action for six months while he recovers from his injuries.

News reports indicate that the umpire working the game said the bat being used seemed different. Santa Fe parents claim it never should have been allowed on the field and that the suspicious bat allegedly was quickly hidden in the trunk of a car after the incident by a League City parent. The bat sent for inspection by the Little League International officials was cleared as legal; questions remain whether it was the same bat that contributed to Parsutt Jr.'s injury.
