Bits and Pieces - July 11, 2012

The US Olympic team becomes French. According to Fox.

This land is your land, this land is my land... DC area Guthrie fans, take note!

 Overstating the terrorist threat. Does this surprise anyone any more? Worth saying again.

Speaking of overreaction to that threat, that's what the high-tech bioalarms do. This is something that should have been dealt with by those buying the equipment. The number of unacceptable false alarms can be calculated from statistics. That should have beeen part of the specifications for these detectors. There should have been tests. I'll bet none of that was done.

Also no surprise: a fairly good article on how DC think tanks are all white guys, written by a woman, topped off with a titty picture. I guess the editor is a man.
