Sunspots 345

Things I have recently spotted that may be of interest to someone else:

Humor: (or maybe not so funny) ABC News reports, with X-ray photos, on people who come to the emergency room with objects of various kinds stuck into their body openings.

Science:  Wired reports that a government study indicates that using chimpanzees in medical research is not necessary.

Politics: Demonstrators in Wisconsin may soon have to pay for the privilege, according to The Milwaukee Journal.

Not sure why the "occupy" crowd isn't made to get permits anyway ~ anywhere.

I always like to look at the x-rays of anything ~ thanks for linking.

Thanks, atlibertytosay.

I understand that it makes some sense to require permits, but it's possible that denial of permits could be used as a means to restrict free speech, of people who oppose the views of whoever is in power in the area. I'm sure that exactly that has happened, although I can't cite any particular place or time.
