Discovery may make ghost imaging a reality — Hmmm. I am suspicious of the physics of this.

Penguin recognition software — No, really. The security scare finally starts to pay off.

On Wesley Clark on John McCain — I’ve mostly been staying out of this issue, because it’s not an “issue” except to McCain people looking for flames to fan. Good commentary, though.

Evidence Faulted in Detainee Case — In case you think the Bush administration is operating the prison camp at Guantánamo in good faith and with just cause, or something. This line struck me as especially twisted” American officials have said that they cannot return Mr. Parhat and 16 other Uighur detainees at Guantánamo to China for fear of mistreatment. So really what we’re doing is helping them by keeping them in Gitmo. I feel so much better now.

Don't attribute to malice what can be adequately explained by a fear of derision.

I'm not seeing where quantum entanglement is necessary to achieve this "ghost imaging."

I especially don't see how pointing a "chaotic laser" creates the quantumly entangled pairs ...

For fear of mistreatment.


Now I'm more than a little frightened at just what the official definition of "mistreatment" has become.
