Is it odd that I have the same thoughts on Syria as a horrible, somewhat insane dictator?
 
The best article I've yet read about the perilous road of intervention in Syria. And, it's from +The Onion of all places.

So what do our bright minds feel is the correct answer? If the decision was yours, what would your answer be to do?

I honestly am tired. Tired of the religious zealots in this part of the world. Tired of their centuries of war. Tired of their blind hatred. Tired of us having to babysit, or bully them into acting civil in the first place. 

I honestly just want to forget that whole part of the world and just use our shale and natural gas and not need their oil. Unfortunately for one, that is still not economically possible. For two, people are dying. Innocent people due to a few power hungry idealists squabbling. Having the power to stop that and not doing so is a moral crime in itself.

I do not know what the correct answer is, but this is how I am feeling about it. Any suggestions? If you had the power, what would your action be?

Sorry to make light of another man's death, but GRRM fans beware ... You've been put on notice.
 
Best-selling Scottish author Iain Banks has died aged 59: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-22835047

He was best known for his novels The Wasp Factory, The Crow Road and Complicity.

In April, he announced he was suffering from terminal gall bladder cancer and said he was unlikely to live for more than a year.

There's probably a legal argument in there somewhere, but I'm going to go ahead and judge harshly without reading the article. It's my right as an internet user.
 
It's perfectly legal for cops in Hawaii to have sex with prostitutes during undercover investigations, and Honolulu police are fighting to keep it that way.

Truth. My only issue with this is that it's on a outwardly progressive site. Don't get me wrong, I'm as hippy dippy as they come, but I really dislike that something so fundamental to a healthy democracy might get ignored by half of the country due to perceived bias.

I wish they had a direct web version of the article, but the A2 City Recycling/Waste newsletter explains why you need to clean/rinse your recycling. Lots of people who visit ask why we rinse our recycling.  Here's the answer:

http://www.a2gov.org/Documents/WW%20Fall%20Winter%202013.pdf

The article author wastes valuable page real estate by appealing to our sense of ickiness (or maybe because this is the primary annoyance of the author)... 
"...a semi-full food container that sits out in the sun doesn’t 
smell like roses after a few days....While the smell is bad for your neighbors, it can be almost overwhelming for workers at the recycling plant."

But then after losing 60% of readers, they actually hit what should be the main point of the article: 

"...those [cleaner] recyclables are worth more, meaning fewer taxpayer dollars are required for recycling... The cleaner the recycling, the more money it garners on the market."

We wash/rinse all of our recycling, too!

If this is the (u/dis)topia that Glass ushers in, we must stop it at all costs.

“ 'Attention is the rarest and purest form of generosity.' ” 

Beautifully written piece on how communication technology is (detrimentally) shaping our lives. While no prescription is offered, mere awareness is the first step towards bending daily habits towards presence.

"The more distracted we become, and the more emphasis we place on speed at the expense of depth, the less likely and able we are to care."

"Being attentive to the needs of others might not be the point of life, but it is the work of life. It can be messy, and painful, and almost impossibly difficult. But it is not something we give. It is what we get in exchange for having to die."

A COUPLE of weeks ago, I saw a stranger crying in public. I was in Brooklyn's Fort Greene neighborhood, waiting to meet a friend for breakfast. I arrived at the restaurant a few minutes early and was sitting on the bench outside, scrolling through my contact list. A girl, maybe 15 years old, ...

Regardless of political affiliation, this is horrendous.  The left cried foul as Bush did the same things.  Will the left be more fervent this time around?? Unlikely.

This is NOT a political issue.  This is a liberty/privacy issue that all Americans should agree upon.  Enough is Enough.  I miss Russ Feingold.
 
Well, this is very disconcerting.  At what point does the government become a "terrorist" to the people they are governing?  Requesting specific records for call data on individuals that the government has probable cause, sure, but all calls indiscriminately, it's unbelievable.

It's hard to imagine that there are "Americans" in the NSA/Government who think "yeah, this is a good idea, lets do this".

The more and more digital our society has become, the laws to protect our
digital footprint have not kept pace. WE need to stand together to have our
voices heard. We the people has morphed to become We the big businesses...
and We the government... and somehow all of their issues get passed through
our political system, yet WE the People no longer have a voice. SAD.

Regardless of political affiliation, this is horrendous.  We (the left) cried foul as Bush did the same things.  Can we be equally loud in holding our officials accountable?? This is NOT a political issue.  This is a justice issue that all Americans should agree upon.  Enough is Enough.

Easily the best bagel place in town. Luckily it's on our side of town. I dislike that no one seems to know about it. "Hidden gem" certainly fits here though it's unfortunate for the proprietors.
