Random Odds and Ends

Here's another collection of important stories that I wish I could write about more...

President Bush (yes, he's still President) reassures the world his awesome bailout/rescue plan is totally going to work, just give him some time to work his magic. And Sec. Paulson ponders his Plan B.

Meanwhile, Chrysler and GM talk about a merger.

Here's a no-shit story: "Despite pledges by President Bush and American intelligence officials to the contrary, hundreds of US citizens overseas have been eavesdropped on as they called friends and family back home, according to two former military intercept operators who worked at the giant National Security Agency (NSA) center in Fort Gordon, Georgia." Among the dangerous jihad communications intercepted? Phone sex.

What happened with Troopergate? For those interested, the report is now out.

A county in upstate NY made a 'mistake'... their ballot lists "Barack Osama". Oops?

Enemies of gay marriage in California are probably feeling pretty good now, as their ballot measure to stop it seems likely to pass. Live in Cali? Vote "NO" on Prop 8 next month. Citizens in Connecticut, however, got more positive news this week.

Pakistan to U.S.: Please stop bombing us, thankyouverymuch.

Finally, climate change is still happening, as many tropical species cannot forget.
