the weed bowl

Given current events, I don't know if it's irony or just synchronicity that brought this year's 2 teams together but it should be a good game!
P.S. Oh, and happy Groundhog's Day. Anyone know if Punxatawny Phil saw his shadow?

PI character emerges

A man who started out out in a boat for El Salvador in September of 2012 ended up in the Marshall Islands. He is recovering nicely after his 16 month ocean sojourn where he said he survived on birds, fish and turtles. He was lost for 16 months

He was a Lost Sailor
He spent far too much time at sea

Alpha Dog Snowden 2013

There is already a campaign underway to paint Snowden, Greenfield & Assange in the same political colors.

The last reformation of the NSA was brought about 40 years ago by whistle-blowers who broke into a government office building and removed sensitive files.

Pleading to any kind of reduced charge on Snowden's part would be a cop-out and unseemly. Obama should grant him executive clemency -- there are too many hardliners in the military-intelligence community who consider him the USA's most damaging spy ever and feel that he has to be made an example of.

Of course, giving him the Nobel Peace Prize would piss-off America enough to throw Norway out of NATO!

Hero or Villian

Yesterday, Edward Snowden was nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize by two Norwegian politicians. Snowden's story is still being told, so its cultural significance has not yet been determined, but I do find this nomination to be notable because it provides an alternative to the narrative being promoted by the US government.
