The UK censors the news, then censors the news about censoring the news. Seems in need of some Streisand Effecting.

Ah, that would explain why I can't map it to anywhere at MIT, say. :-)  Except that a bunch of us know a Stever who went to MIT.

Baby steps toward a functional government!
The U.S. Senate enacted a major change to its rules, paving the way to allow a simple majority to confirm nominees for executive branch jobs and most judicial posts.

Happy Blasphemy Day! 
If you believe that you follow a leader who has ordered his followers to commit genocide (Deuteronomy 20:16 etc.), may you not just be glad that he has finished his genocides and will order no more, but may you have the moral strength to rebel.

It's still "possible" to avoid horribly grim outcomes, but ... not likely.

Only 15% of Bostonians support retributively killing Tsarnaev. If you picked a random jury to try him, the chance of getting one that would give him the death penalty would be less than one in a billion. Even supposing that whatever details of the trial aren't public would convince anyone not deadset against the death penalty, the odds would be less than one in a thousand.

But prosecutors are allowed to and did select only from that tiny minority for jury members. I guess those willing to kill people are Tsarnaev's peers?

The nuclear option for nominees is a good start, but the damage done by blocked bills has been even worse.

The thing is, I think right now there are not 51 Senate votes in favor of ending the filibuster on legislation, precisely because of the reasoning that I gave: it would be of no immediate practical benefit. You're actually more likely to get the necessary 51 votes at some hypothetical future point when the Democrats control the House.
