Hmnn... 8 of the top 10 are English-speaking, the offspring of Adam Smith, John Locke etc.

Not an accident.

What in the world is going on down there in Washington DC? Alberto Gonzales goes to AEI yesterday to proclaim that judges can't be trusted on matters of national security, but the very next day, the warrentless wiretapping program he so valiantly defended is now being turned over to the FISA court ????? That is at the very least a mixed message from the Bush administration, and at worst, an embarrassing miscommunication (did Gonzales even KNOW this was about to happen before he gave the speech at AEI?)

President Bush can't expect much credibility on national security when he turns the program he said was so vital to protecting America from terrorism over to the federal court system his attorney general said the very day before was incapable of protecting America from terrorism!

Did Gonzales just not KNOW that this decision was going to be made to turn the program over to the FISA court? Did someone not TELL him? If they did, why did he say what he said at AEI, which can only undermine public confidence in the decision that Bush's administration made public not 24 hours later?

This is astounding.

Completely off topic, but I found the following energy comparison to be very interesting, and thought you might as well: http://www.spectrum.ieee.org/jan07/4820 It has a link to a nice graphic.

To summarize it: To obtain the same amount of energy that the world extracts from oil in a SINGLE year, you'd need to run one of the following for FIFTY years: 104 large coal-burning plants, 52 commercial nuclear reactors, over 32,000 large wind turbines, or over 91 million home-sized solar panel setups.
