Once again, I have too many tabs open and no time to write much about any of them. So here goes:

A pair of Mother Jones stories on how "Climategate" happened and the science of why we don't believe science.

The Atlantic's Ron Brownstein on changes in the American electorate. It's the demographics, not surprisingly.

Boing Boing's Cory Doctorow speaking about why less copyright gets you more culture. My favorite part is when he says he would definitely choose the millions of people putting videos up on YouTube over the 400 movies Hollywood makes each year .

A New York Times story about an Austin, Texas, activist who has been surveilled by the FBI for years. Including the laughable description of one of his suspicious activities that turned out to be a quilt he was making for a kids' after-school program.

The story of a U.S. Marine (who happens to be Latino) who was shot 71 times and killed by police during a SWAT raid. Welcome home, and thanks for your service.

Medical news that shows kids who suffer from social anxiety confuse angry faces with sad ones.

Ryan Dow's flowchart for geek whining.

I feel better now. Thanks.
