Weekly Poll
Do you think the Carrizo Plain should stay a national monument?

Absolutely. The Carrizo is one of the last undeveloped areas of the San Joaquin Valley, a protected habitat for endangered species, and a natural wonder for the public.
Yes, but I don't think it's as clear cut as some think. The Trump Administration should take a look at its status.
The feds should consider reducing the size of the monument.
No. The Carrizo should be privatized. Allow the market to tap into its natural resources.

Director and screenwriter James Gunn (Guardians of the Galaxy, Super, Slither) helms this sci-fi action comedy about a group of galactic misfits who must team up once again to save the known universe. Based on the Marvel comics series, the cast includes Chris Pratt as Peter Quill/Star-Lord, Zoe Saldana as Gamora, Dave Bautista as Drax, Vin Diesel as the voice of Baby Groot, Bradley Cooper as the voice of Rocket, Michael Rooker as Yondu, Karen Gillan as Nebula, Pom Klementieff as Mantis, Sylvester Stallone as Stakar Ogord, and Kurt Russell as Ego.

And if you’re a fan of the franchise, don’t worry: Vol. 3 is in the works and gets teed up here with cameos by Michelle Yeoh and Ving Rhames. Hopefully they won’t run out of awesome ’70s pop for the soundtrack. (136 min.)
