Wednesday Morning News Roundup

The number of cases of the flu seems to be tailing off.

(A friend of mine called me today because he thought he was getting the flu. Anytime you call a trauma surgeon to discuss the flu, you’re desperate.)

The NRA (National Rifle Association) is calling President Obama a hypocrite because his children go to a school that has armed guards. Of course, his children go to an exclusive school in which there are many high profile children. Somehow, the National Rifle Association thinks that a high profile child who is a kidnapping target is exactly the same as the average American child.

Former staffers are dishing up pieces of embarrassing tidbits regarding Michele Bachmann. It might have something to do with their not getting paid. I thought Republicans were great at managing money?

New stricter gun laws are passed in New York. (more…)

Grab Bag – Monday

Good morning. Here are a couple of things.

PJ Crowley, former State Department Spokesperson

  • With the chaos that is going on in Japan, a friend of mine sent me an e-mail about a power plant that we have on an active fault line. Diablo Canyon Power Plant is not far from not one, not two faultlines. It is designed to withstand a quake of 7.5 magnitude. It just gives me pause. I would prefer a nice wind farm.
  • It appears that a group of Republicans still believe that Yucca Mountain should be our national repository for nuclear waste.
  • A man who was swept out to sea, after the Japanese tsunami, has been found.
  • Another militia group has been disrupted, this time in Alaska. Their motives and tactics appear to be familiar.
  • Here’s part of the inside story of the NPR “sting” performed by serial liar James O’Keefe. There is a simple truth in life. If the situation seems to be too good to be true, 99 times out of 100, it’s too good to be true.
  • Mitch McConnell defends nuclear energy.
  • A good man, P.J. Crowley has stepped down from the State Department after “controversial” statements about the detention of Bradley Manning. If the reports are true, I don’t understand why Bradley Manning has to be detained in his underwear. If he is guilty, put him on trial. If he’s not guilty, release him. It’s that simple.
  • To repeat the obvious, we’re still not broke.
  • Why do we keep interviewing Michele Bachmann? She has been proven to be wrong time after time. She now claims the Tea Party has bipartisan support. If she says so.
  • Thoughtful Libyan update. Rebel forces seem to be retreating.
  • I love the protests in Wisconsin. I support them with all my heart. I will also support them with as much cash as I can.
