From "Oil Spill Reaches Mississippi River" @ CBS:

Mr. Obama said SWAT teams were being dispatched to the Gulf to investigate oil rigs and said his administration is now working to determine the cause of the disaster.


Please tell me what, exactly, SWAT is going to do on an oil rig?

According to the Washington Post this morning, Mr. Beauchamp is feeling the repercussions of his actions: "[Franklin] Foer, [editor of The New Republic,] also said Beauchamp "has put himself in significant jeopardy" and "lost his lifeline to the rest of the world" because military officials have taken away his laptop, cellphone and e-mail privileges."

I can't imagine why.

Snipped for a shorter rant. )

London flight diverted to Logan after on-board fight; security threat.

Apparently a woman was experiencing a bout with "claustrophobia" and had a "confrontation" with the aircrew/flight crew. The "prohibited items" are listed in other sources as matches, a screwdriver, and Vaseline. So my question is this: Did she plan on her little attack of claustrophobia? Because I know I carry matches, screwdrivers, and Vaseline in my carry-on luggage simply all the time. (/sarcasm)

I think this chick should have to pay for the jet fuel and the fighter pilots' time spent in escort. Especially if she turns out to be just another nutcase.
