Bits and Pieces for the Week of May 4 - 10

Remember when the U.S. was offered million of dollars in relief aid for victims of hurricane Katrina and it went unclaimed? I find it the height of hypocrisy for the U.S. to be critical of the military junta in Myanmar for aid efforts stalling. (7 of 6)

Imagine: Instead of having our mighty military in Iraq endlessly driving and flying around and shooting at an elusive enemy that we created, we instead moved it over to Myanmar and helped resolve this devastating problem. That's the United States of America I would like to live in. (Mike)

Fascinating story: Hard drive, from Space Shuttle Columbia (which disintegrated with 7 astronauts on board in February, 2003), containing research data intended to solve physics problem was recovered with 99% of data intact. (Mike)

This is just the most god-awful political video I've ever seen. (Mike)

California is running out of money, and running out of ways to pay its teachers. (Mike)

A case for Hillary. (Mike)

"Soaring food prices may throw millions of Asians back into poverty, undo a decade of gains and stoke civil unrest" (Mike)

The recession is starting to hit Las Vegas hard. (Mike)

In the supposedly tranquil province of Anbar: Four Marines killed in Iraq. Hello... American troops are still dying there... Does anybody hear me? Apparently not! (7 of 6)

Canada must choose on how to approach the American Northwest ban on Salmon fishing. (7 of 6)

Dear 7of6:

Everyone hears you just fine. They just don't care. Apathy by Americans is going to be our eventual downfall.
