The Morning Blog

In an interesting turn of events, the sex assault allegedly committed by Dominique Strauss-Kahn has become significantly more alleged-y and may be dismissed. The supposed victim is a bit fishy: 

According to the two officials, the woman had a phone conversation with an incarcerated man within a day of her encounter with Mr. Strauss-Kahn in which she discussed the possible benefits of pursuing the charges against him. The conversation was recorded. 

That man, the investigators learned, had been arrested on charges of possessing 400 pounds of marijuana. He is among a number of individuals who made multiple cash deposits, totaling around $100,000, into the woman’s bank account over the last two years. The deposits were made in Arizona, Georgia, New York and Pennsylvania. 

Here are other old men behaving badly. Not quite so allegedly in this case.

All things considered, not a good day for the mob.

And the Hacker group Anonymous is carrying on with their shenanigans. This time they're attacking the city of Orlando in response to the arrests of volunteers who were illegally feeding homeless people. Not that I'm a big fan of Anonymous but really? Charity is illegal in Orlando? That's a bit much.

Speaking of hackers... Not a cool thing. Very glad nobody got hurt.

2012 Watch: More on Newt Gingrich and his bling. In fairness, I have to concede that Gingrich is a really generous boss. An awful candidate but still, one hell of a generous boss.

So long Beck. We hardly knew ye. I'm surprised to find out that he was only on the air for 30 months. Seemed to me like he'd been scaring the elderly for far longer than that. I guess time drags when you're watching someone rant with a blackboard.

Speaking of Beck... I predict he'll spend quite a bit of change in this vending machine.

The group sponsoring the flotilla that will attempt to run the Gaza blockade have reported that two of their ships have been damaged. They're accusing Israel of sabotaging the boats. Inasmuch as Israel has been known to practice a somewhat robust foreign policy, I wouldn't put it past them.

Looks like the government is going to have even more problems with the drug trade.


Bacon, guns and silver! It's time for Libertarian summer camp! Sounds like fun honestly.

Alternately, you could spend the summer visiting Rome's subterranean Temple of Mithras.

But whatever you do, DO NOT go to the pool in Massachusetts. Seriously. Do not.

Of course, there's always Six Flags.
