Here’s what’s caught my eye this morning:
- Looks like the MuNu server is down for the count.
- Coming Anarchy has a handy graphical breakdown of German politics. Elections there are coming up soon and it looks like a change is gonna come.
- There’s more news from Westerville, the Red State Lake Wobegone over at Dennis the Peasant’s. This time he’s received a visit from the CIA.
- Well, I found this post from Harry’s Place hysterically funny, anyway. And, sadly, too true.
- For those of you who’ve just tuned in, the dean of milbloggers, Greyhawk of Mudville Gazette, pens an introductory post.
- May I remind everyone who’s concerned about U. S. oil imports that most of our oil imports are not from the Gulf? Should we conserve more? Of course. I’ve supported a stiff gasoline tax for thirty years now and voted for candidates who supported one. But if Gulf oil production were put on the kibosh we wouldn’t be the ones feeling the most pain.
- Pundita raises her head from posts about pig diseases in China long enough to post an excellent entry on the prospects for the UN Millennium Challenge project(s) to ameliorate poverty amongst the poorest of the poor.
- An, er, analysis of CAFE fuel economy standards from Knowledge Problem.
- Rand Simberg of Transterrestrial Musings suggests an appropriate salute for remembering the debut of Windows 1995, ten years ago today. I can think of another.
That’s the lot.
