Things I Saw Around The Intertubes Today
February 26, 2014
  • PBS science correspondent Miles O’Brien had his left arm amputated after a minor injury put his life at risk. Jesus, that sucks.
  • If police departments were properly supervised by local officials, scams like this would be a lot less likely.
  • Thanks to saturating the airwaves with his ads, progressive millionaire Tom Wolf is kicking the crap out of DLC-Dem Allyson Schwartz in Pennsylvania's Democratic gubernatorial primary race. Can he hold that lead? Of course not, but it's still encouraging.
  • The Department of Transportation has issued an emergency order requiring crude oil rail shippers to test each load -- and classify it as higher risk.
