  • Canada’s lax border.
  • Bacteria ‘R’ Us. Very dense, but worth the effort. It makes the argument that we’re as much colonies of bacteria as anything else.
  • Remember how I couldn’t believe that Martha Coakley was Massachusetts’ Attorney General? Well, the Republicans in that state didn’t nominate anyone to run against her. It turns out that there is a write-in candidate. This is not a full endorsement; just noting that this guy is not Alvin Greene, so should be better than Coakley.

OK, so I’m really behind. Hopefully, none of these have lost anything in the intervening week and a half:

  • Beating the incandescent bulb ban. Or, if you’re in San Diego, the 100-yen shop on Mercury has got tungsten bulbs. (Sadly, they’re designed for your work space and not your living room.)
  • The Muslim Brotherhood calls for jihad against the United States. It’s been pretty much ignored the same way al Qaida’s declaration of war years ago.
  • Facebook apps apparently share your information, and your friends’ information, no matter what the privacy settings say. At some point, I’m going to install the SSL plug-in for WordPress, and everybody can just switch over to No Serf.
