Thousands of authors opt out of Google book settlement — The banal evil of Google, again.

Launch Pad 2010 Information: Application Window Opening Soon, Guest Instructor Announced — I did this two years ago. It was an awesome experience. Go check it out.

Enceladus is erupting!Bad Astronomy with an interesting article and some hellacious photography from Cassini.

Convair XB-36H — From the Department of Really Bad Ideas.

Non Sequitur nails the Tea Party — And it's not even a political comic...

The Birchers Are Real — and They’re Spectacular — More objective evidence that the conservative movement is insane. The John Birch Society is back in the mainstream.

Virginia lawmaker: Children with disabilities are God’s punishment to women who previously had abortions — Even more objective evidence that the conservative movement is insane. That this rhetoric is embraced, approved and gets votes is disgusting and profoundly inhumane. Sociopathic, even. I'd say "stay classy, GOP," but I don't have the heart to twit you guys on this piece of vile tripe. (Thanks to goulo.)

The Birchers Are Real — and They’re Spectacular

And we wondered what it would take to wish Bill Buckley were back. *sigh*

What happened to the Conservatives with Brains?Virginia lawmaker: Children with disabilities are God’s punishment to women who previously had abortions

Can we secede? It seems to be all the thing these days anyway. I'd like to secede.
