Drug War Run Amuck

Interesting New York Times story provides some Wiki-leaked information about the DEA.  Do you really want your government involved in all this?

Q: How Do You Say “Solar Energy Bubble” In Spanish?

A: Una Burbuja De Energía Solar! . From Thursday’s Wall Street Journal: A group of international investors has called on the Spanish government to reconsider plans to cut costly subsidies for solar power, saying they would cause a wave of defaults and more bad loans for Europe’s banks.

The Press Gets It Right On COAH (well, not really)
