Apparently, Rand Paul's opposition to warrantless surveillance is racist. Who knew?
Paul never had to fight assumptions based on his color or ethnicity. If he had, he'd feel different about bulk data VIDEO

Unfortunately SIA does not fly to Kolkata, so AI or one of the Middle Eastern Airways.  I have thought about staying overnight at Delhi, then more choices.

More and more, places that bid for Olympics, World Cup, etc, are generally oppressive dictatorships that seek to host event as publicity stunt.  IOC and similar bodies give very strong preference to organizers willing to build flashy and expensive new venues, instead of giving preference to organizers that can reuse existing venues.  Many of those purpose built "gems of architecture" will be useless pieces of concrete and abandoned after being in the spotlight for few short weeks.  It's no small wonder that increasingly only shady dictators are willing to provide what IOC seeks for.  Because for everybody else, there's little to no incentive to pour money into something like that.

It made the front page of Bild, Europe’s largest daily newspaper, just beneath their update about the Germanwings crash. From there, it ricocheted around the internet and beyond, making news in more than 20 countries and half a dozen languages. It was discussed on tel...

Aung San Suu Kyi has been very disappointing on this issue and shown herself unworthy of the Nobel.
Sydney (AFP) - The Dalai Lama has urged fellow Nobel peace laureate Aung San Suu Kyi to do more to help Myanmar's persecuted Muslim Rohingya minority amid a worsening migration crisis.

Good thing she didn't ask "dot or feather?".
