If it wasn't for a couple of big elections, pretty sure this would be the top political story of the day. http://news.yahoo.com/obama-and-bush-poll-numbers-nearly-identical-five-years-into-presidency-214919924.html

A Republican running for Congress in Montana released a new campaign ad where he shoots down a drone with his rifle. So, you know, I asked him about that.

My dispatch from last night's Saturn Awards, including a brief chat with Joss Whedon on why genre ceremonies like this still matter.
The first Saturn Awards were given out in 1972 as a way to honor achievements in science fiction fantasy and horror, genres that often were overlooked and underappreciated by mainstream critics. Case in point: This is the only major awards ceremony where you'll see Ewoks and R2D2 strolling down the red carpet along side Oscar [...]
