I'll review some recent results from the APOSTLE simulation project highlighting the wide diversity in local isolated dwarf galaxy rotation curve shapes. This diversity is sometimes ascribed to dark matter cores; while I cannot discount this as a possibility, I will argue that at least some of the scatter must be due to observational or modeling systematics that must be addressed before drawing any further strong conclusions.
