APOD with a gorgeous image — The Milky Way over a Turkish mountaintop.

Lake County Sheriff sentences himself to jail — Interesting approach. I wonder if we could get Bush into Gitmo for a while. (Hat tip to Freaknomics.)

Attacks, praise stretch truth at GOP convention — In a bizarre turn of events, Your Liberal Media actually does its job for a change. (Thanks to goulo.)

Scalzi on rock star politicians — Yeah. What he said. He’s smarter than me, and it’s early here in Omaha.

The headline "Lake County Sheriff sentences himself to jail" plays it for laughs, but upon reading the article I was quite impressed with the guy. I wish more officials (whether cops or whoever) would think about how they could understand the experiences and points of view of the people they are guarding, serving, etc.

He's my sheriff, and I've met him a couple of times (in an unofficial capacity). I've long been impressed by him, although it has been odd seeing the pictures of him wearing a prisoner uniform and getting in and out of cars in handcuffs.

As usual, a terrific link salad. I love how these little collections tend to stimulate all parts of the brain. :D
