• We can’t decide if this is heartening (drivers are being safe!) or mortally depressing: California air pollution kills more people per year than car crashes.

• A soldier-blogger gets his moment in the spotlight—though the real question is, what does he think of Trooptube?

  41. Wow, lots of link spam here. I actually wanted to make a comment about the history of Swine Flu through the ages. The government has lied to the public about swine flu. It’s nothing more than an attempt to make money by scaring up the people about this pandemic. Does a flue called swine flu exist? Sure, but there is a cure too and they use that so as to make money too.
