There are a a few more links in this post thank normal. That’s all my fault. I had been holding a couple stories back because I initially thought I could work them into a couple decent blog posts. After a few halting starts, I realized that, nope, nothing good was going to come out of them. That just how blogging works sometimes, or so I’m told. The good news is that you get an extra linky CtBT post today. Lucky you, huh?
And now, links!
- The “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” reports final results are a lot more interesting, and not as helpful to those who want the policy repealed, than we’ve been led to believe.
- Math is hard, especially for Newsweek’s Fareed Zakaria.
- It may not be long before you have a computer-brain interface of your own. I’d like mine to look like the Gamesters of Triskelion, please.
- Business hates uncertainty, so of course our President’s on-again, off-again oil drilling ban is on again. Is it any wonder that our economy still stinks so badly?
- Ibrahim Hooper, spokesman of the largest Islamist-apologist group in the United States, said today that, ““We don’t want to be in a position of banning art or censoring art.” Make of that what you will.
- The House of Representatives censured Charlie Rangel for his various breaches of the House rules, or, as we call them out here in the real world, crimes of theft and abuse of power. Don’t expect an apology out of him, though. He can’t even comprehend he’s done anything wrong.
- Of course, if there’s one person in Congress who will stand up for the vile Julian Assange in Congress, it would be Ron Paul, who thinks we deserved what we got on 9/11 (via memeorandum).
- Mark your calendars, stargazers, the Geminids are coming.
- Beautiful. Simply beautiful.
