The Underwater Internet http://trib.al/qCZtIx7
A wireless world relies on more than cloud technology. Half-century-old cable stations are critical nodes where messages can still be delayed, censored, or intercepted.

Who Decides Where Autistic Adults Live? http://trib.al/kVTewZ3

No one's afraid of Islam. The planet is merely disgusted with it.

6 of one half a dozen of the other.

What possessed this woman to think she could win a fight with authority? Because she knew the law or because she loves her freedom so much she thinks that there is no reason for others to defend it for her.

Why I'd border patrol operating inside the border? If you don't know the answer to that question you really don't deserve to be defended.

My husband and I met too late in life to consider children, but had it been even five or ten years sooner, it would have been a 'go'.  Fortunately we live in New England where hatred isn't as big a factor in making laws as in the former slave red states.
