Bits and Pieces - October 27. 2009

This is really, really important. Modernizing the nation's electrical grid will save energy and improve energy security while providing jobs. And we're going to do it!

Photos from the weekend's global warming demonstrations.

Seven hundred people arrested across the nation in sex-trafficking rings. And a few days ago, more than three hundred in La Familia Michoacana's drug trafficking. I'm looking forward to Republican praise for the Justice Department.

Stop this man before he destroys the world economy again!

More greed in the financial industry. Goldman says that lack of transparency benefits Goldman and hurts the small investor, and that's the way it should be.

Women pay more for health insurance.

Support for Blue Dogs - not so much. Could it be their opposition to health reform legislation?

Why criminalizing illegal immigration is dumb.

Environmental war?

Pliosaur in Dorset! Those fossil cliffs are great; the inspiration for The French Lieutenant's Woman.

Central Asia under Stalin.

Florida real-estate developer Mel Sembler, whose last foray onto the political stage was as chair of the Scooter Libby Defense Trust, is financing Dick Cheney's latest efforts.

Texas in Taos. I suppose it's not a surprise after that Louisiana judge who wouldn't marry that interracial couple as a favor to their children.
