Though I saw it all around
Never thought I could be affected
Thought that we'd be the last to go
It is so strange the way things turn

Linkee-poo better get its blood tested, it's feeling a little anemic

But that's because I have no time. So only two links today, both political. Sorry.

One of the fundamental logic flaws of the climate deniers laid bare. I made a similar argument two weeks ago. "Really, it's the money? You do know who is funding the 2% of climate scientists who are coming up with these easily disprovable theories about how either it's not us or it's okay? Who is getting the money?" (Grokked from Jay Lake)

So, after a two month investigation in Maine, turns out no student violated the law. They did find one non-resident did vote in 2002 (an illegal alien who had since been deported). And yet, that's no cause to actually change a system that isn't broken. Two months of investigation because the GOP Party Chairman said that 206 student voted illegally (and provided a list of name) so ZOMG the sky is falling, only to find there's no there there. And that investigation showed there was no need to change the law (Maine revoked their same day registration) because it wasn't causing any problems. But they're supporting that change anyway. Good way to be fiscally conservative. Good job. Proud yet?
