ColoradoLib has more on the story on that NREL situation. I don't think he mentions the part about where the "restored" funding still won't get NREL back to where they were a year ago.
An Olympic story I missed, and one I'm glad Prometheus 6 pointed out to us.
Also from Prometheus 6, A once-in-a-while in a lifetime event He links to the...wait for it...Wall Street Journal's OpinionPage! To agree with them!
Over at Body and Soul, a follow-up on what's happening in Basra.
Andrew Olmsted has a really good entry up at the moment. Democracy Doesn't Work.
And Majikthise has another of those entries that make me feel guilty...an admonition to organize, act, and blog locally. (I'm going to.)
Ahhh...one of my pet peeves. Corporate personhood, over at King of Zembla. Not only are they "persons" but thanks to Bush&Co., they're getting perks and protections some of us other "persons" might not approve of.
On the other hand, corporations held liable for crimes employees commit while they're not at work?
Patriotism versus nationalism. Well worth reading.
And Mustang Bobby has a story we should all know about. Democrats should live their principles.
I swore I wouldn't blog the story, but Tom Engelhardt has just the right angle on the story. It's not so much who got shot but the fact that Cheney was, once again, pretending to be a "hunter" and a "sportsman" while slaughtering farmed birds. And the reason I found the story interesting is because it's a pretty darned good metaphor for the whole Republican chickenhawk phenomenon.
Eric's being a tease. What book is this?
