Chess in the 21st century.  Pity it's not in 3D like when I was a kid.

As far as I know, this is the first time in decades that The Economist has endorsed a sitting president.

Some fun with song names in these posters:

I'm pretty sure I recognize all of the Beatle songs.  I got a few of the Stones and Dylan songs, but don't know the other performers well enough to identify the references.

I pre-ordered the Game of Thrones DVD set from Amazon, but got impatient when they announced that it wouldn't be available until March. Then I went through the same process Matthew Inman describes here. Of course, The Oatmeal's devil/angel conscience is funnier.

Excellent, long (13,000 word) debate between Bruce Schneier and Sam Harris on the efficacy of ethnic profiling at airports.

http://www.schneier.com/essay-397.html

Harris makes the commonsense case that resources are wasted when obvious non-terrorists like elderly people in wheelchairs are subjected to intensive screening. Schneier explains why intuition isn't a sound foundation for security procedures.

Personally, I think Bruce wins.

Decided to try something different for my birthday. Was not disappointed. No one saw us when we walked in the door and we waited a few minutes to be seated. Once the waiter appeared, he was professional and courteous. The wait for the food was short and the meal was excellent. Quite reasonably priced.
