A little piece of Colorado which looks very weird from the air — It's hard to see on the Google maps satellite/aerial photos, but that north-south structure (which holds the lake) looks remarkably artificial. It's far too large scale to be anything but a subduction fold or some such geological artifact, but it was quite striking on overflight this morning.

Bush struggles to stay relevant in climate debate — Gooollllleeee, Sergeant Carter. Who'd a thunk it? That anyone would have the nerve to not take the Bush administration seriously on global warming? Obviously the U.N. needs some of the Liberty University graduate neo-con political officer goodness overseeing them, just like NASA and the rest of the U.S. Federal science apparatus, which knows better than to embarrass the flathead-in-chief. Next he'll be mentioning evolution as a good idea.

I have a story up in Helix #6, which has just gone live

School Guards Break Child's Arm And Arrest Her For Dropping Cake — More high school hell. (Thanks to danjite.)

Unusual propellor-driven vehicles — (Thanks to danjite.)

Bicycle lawnmowing — (Thanks to danjite.)

True grit — (Thanks to lt260, who reminds us that we all need to live in hominy.)

That's Carter Lake, which has 3 dams in key places on the eastern side to create it in that pocket of land:
