Bits and Pieces for the Week of May 24 - 30

The Video Shell Oil Desperately Doesn't Want You to See (Mike)

As it's doing with stem cell research, California is leading the way in laser fusion research (Mike)

Poor Tom... "Tancredo attacks Sotomayor for belonging to La Raza, ‘a Latino KKK’" as opposed to really belonging to the KKK. Of course this is coming from the same guy who threatened to bomb Mecca. Who says the right wing isn't amusing? (7 of 6)

The horrifying and often unfair reality of forclosures in Las Vegas (Mike)

Shrewd move... President Obama nominates Judge Sonia Sotomayor for SCOTUS A Female Latina!! Let the Senate republi-cons vote down the first Hispanic pick nominated to SCOTUS and they will lose the Hispanic vote for 100 years!! (7 of 6)

Interesting, who knew we still had a "AAA sovereign rating." "China warns Federal Reserve over 'printing money'". "China has warned a top member of the US Federal Reserve that it is increasingly disturbed by the Fed's direct purchase of US Treasury bonds." (7 of 6)
