Some Sunday morning reading to share.
Either the McCain campaign polling data is showing them in more trouble than they’d like to admit, or they are having fun with misdirection. The main stream media is awash with stories about how McCain is looking for one big strategy to help him in the election. I find that strange because if it is true, it seems like they aren’t paying attention to how Obama is shooting himself in the foot lately. The strategy for either should be pretty simple to discern. Intriguing that they haven’t figured it out yet.
The New York Times has an interesting piece, Your Brain Lies To You. Interesting stuff, if your brain lets you digest it.
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA ) and the US Geological Survey (USGS) want to merge into the Earth Systems Science Agency to better tackle the issues we are facing due to climate change.
Maybe the new agency will come up with floating cities
George F Will on The Knock on the Door. Powerful stuff about the soldiers (in this case Marines) who inform those back home that their loved ones have made the supreme sacrifice.
Frank Rich says we should elect Wall-E for President. I haven’t seen the movie yet, but from the trailers, McCain looks eerily similar.
Marketers ponder why viral marketing campaigns don’t always seem to work. Hint: you need a good product.
Rush Limbaugh gets a hefty raise and a magazine spotlight in The New York Times. Who says narcotic addictions don’t pay off? Maybe that’s unfair. He has managed to sustain one heck of an entertainment career. Problem is most folks don’t know that he is an entertainer.
They found a 3 foot tall tablet in the Middle East, that contains writing that may (or may not) speak of a messiah who will rise from the dead after three days. That could rock a few boats. via The International Herald Tribune.
