Lots of things I noticed in the news

As a reminder of who we're dealing with:

"Meanwhile, Switzerland is locked in a yearlong standoff with Libya
over the fate of two Swiss businessmen held hostage in the North
African country after Geneva police arrested Moammar Gadhafi's son
Hannibal for allegedly beating two servants.

Switzerland's allies have been conspicuously silent about the
incident. In August, Swiss President Hans-Rudolf Merz traveled to
Tripoli to apologize personally for the arrest, but failed to secure
the release of the two men."

Sniping at climate change etc was a little unnecessary, but his point
isn't wrong.

Something very different. I have no idea if I agree or disagree,
whether it makes me angry cuz've its callousness or relieved cuz
someone else thinks so... really, no idea. but it's interesting, at

British hospitals use donor lungs from smokers? Are they THAT short of them?

While capping pain and suffering awards has problems (see prior
posting, thanks to Mike), capping punitive damages would be nice...

SUPER cool and strange article on the Large Hadron Collider

Disney wants to make its stores entertainment centers

Small silver linings to huge black clouds: motorcycle usage increases
