DR Congo ring may be giant 'impact crater' Deforestation has revealed what could be a giant impact crater in Central Africa, scientists say.

Where's Our Ensign Frenzy?Republicans, in other words, have demanded higher moral standards of all of us, while failing to meet these standards themselves -- and failing to ostracize the guilty from their ranks. It's quite a racket, which the media encourages by playing along. They judge, and persecute, because they know they will not be judged or persecuted themselves, despite what their Bible says. (See Matthew 7:1-5, in case you've been neglecting your scriptural studies lately.)

I find it vaguely amusing that the last words article seems to find it surprising that only 10% of inmates criticize the death penalty. These are people for whom death is an acceptable part of their mental framework, after all.
