A big red spot from ethical jabbing?

PM Harper is looking at some trouble from Canada's Ethics Commissioner, for allowing and perhaps even encouraging MP Emerson to cross the floor and join the Conservative cabinet. It's about time Harper's outright deceit during the election campaign is brought to widespread attention. The problem is that the Commissioner hardly seems fair in investigating when he's made comments before stating he couldn't in between parliament sitting.

The planet Jupiter is growing a new red spot. Jupiter is already well known for its Great Red Spot storm which is visible through modest backyard telescopes, so it will be interesting if this newer spot sticks around and grows. "The official name of this storm is "Oval BA," but "Red Jr." might be better. It's about half the size of the famous Great Red Spot and almost exactly the same color. Oval BA first appeared in the year 2000 when three smaller spots collided and merged. A similar merger centuries ago may have created the original Great Red Spot, a storm twice as wide as our planet and at least 300 years old."
This was submitted to Slashdot and accepted.

The EpiPen costs about $100CDN and is still effective says the coroner investigating the death of a teen who reportedly got a "kiss of death" from a peanut eating smoocher. The EpiPen involved wasn't used properly [or at all it sounds like], and nut oil from a kiss wasn't the cause of death either. The big media got the story wrong? Oh my that never happens...
