Random News: June 10, 2011

You may have missed these.

Pay no attention to the (absence of the) man behind the curtain. Newt Gingrich’s Buckhead (read ritzy Atlanta) office space looked vacant when the Atlanta Journal Constitution snapped these photos. What’s up Newt? Where are the structural supports for your campaign? Even if everyone jumped ship, shouldn’t there be stuff? Support staff? What gives?

Bizarre Behavior. Forget copper, these people cut down and stole a tree in almost broad daylight. Fortunately, someone was paying attention. Wonder what compelled them to do that? Scrap yard won’t pay for a tree.

Geek moment. The troubles of adding two new elements to the periodic table.

Another hotspot for trouble on the globe. China confronts Vietnam over disputed waters in South China Sea. The Middle East should not be our sole focus. Trouble in Southeast Asia might mean more “bad things” happening around the globe and inhibit Mr. Bernanke’s forecasts, or at least delay them, AGAIN.

Dangerous Games, that aren’t Games. Here’s an op-ed from the LATimes about the hazards California will encounter following court ordered inmate reductions. Wouldn’t you rather have plan than forced release?

Caffeine ban? Doubt it! Another LA Times opinion piece warns of the hazards of caffeine intake. This author, inexplicably, suggests banning caffeine. What? Get over it folks. You can’t take everything from us. Absences from work would increase, productivity would be down significantly. No, you cannot take my coffee. I draw the line here.
