Mike's Blog Round Up

Did you all see the incredible images of Earth from spacecraft orbiting Saturn and Mercury, and the similarly incredible image of the Curiosity rover from a spacecraft orbiting Mars? Sort of puts things in perspective, no? – particularly given how much we obsess over things like royal births and creepy sexting.

Mario Piperni: The rise and fall of Carlos Danger.

Not the Singularity: The methane bomb that may not be.

Just an Earth-Bound Misfit, I: The government/corporate snitch in your car.

Goblinbooks: The Syrian war that will kill thousands of Americans.

Squatlo-Rant: The guarantee of secrecy for senators' stupid tax ideas.

Round-up by Michael J.W. Stickings of The Reaction (Twitter: @mjwstickings). I'll be here through Sunday.
