Ron Artest changed his name to Metta World Peace.

I'm thinking Daily Kos should change the name of the site to META WORLD WAR!! ;)

For me, I'll stick with Meta Bird... or two. Plus a few other things... it's all under the orange cloud.

UPDATE: From Chrislove and others in the comments:

An update from Catalano herself:

We found out through the Suffolk Police Department that the searches involved also things my husband looked up at his old job. We were not made aware of this at the time of questioning and were led to believe it was solely from searches from within our house.
By now, you've all heard about the woman who blogged that her husband was visited by (some group or other) because they searched backpacks and pressure cookers on Google.

That's not the whole story.

Stratos Free Fall - Photos

by Diogenes2008

Just a quickie diary - I didn't see one on the list, so I'm posting this.

This morning, records were broken. Felix Baumgartner jumped from a capsule that was raised by a helium balloon to about 128,000 feet above the Earth - at the edge of space.

UPDATE: Live Press Conference starting shortly.

Yesterday was quite a day! I got to see the President at a rally in Kissimmee, Florida.

The weather was incredibly hot, but everyone was cheerful and friendly. It was like a big block party!

You MUST Obey The Rules

by Diogenes2008

There are certain rules in our society which must - at all times - be obeyed. These rules are absolutely necessary to maintain the safety of all individuals involved.

Just in case someone doesn't understand these rules, let me lay them out for you.

If I missed any, please feel free to add them in the comments.

I was just watching the Melissa Harris-Perry show on MSNBC, and they were talking about the war against women.

Here we are, engaged in this fight to get birth control for women, and watching our rights slip away... and then came a commercial that just about made me lose it.

EUGENE - In a bold move, Oregon's legislature has passed a new law, similar to those in other states, requiring invasive procedures to be performed before certain medical services can be rendered.

Thank You - A Photo Diary

by Diogenes2008

I found out recently that someone gave me a lifetime subscription to Daily Kos. My first reaction was "Me??"

Second reaction was gratitude, mixed with surprise. I have no idea who gave me this lifetime subscription, but I would like to say "Thank You!"

At times, however, I'm not very good with words... so I'm going to say it with photos, and video. I truly hope the person who gifted me in such a generous way finds something here to enjoy....

I have. There is a diary on the list right now which asks the President if he's ever been cold.

I've been cold, but I have also been very, very hot.

I'd like to share some of my experiences with you, if I may.

This was a comment in that other diary, but I decided to expand on it.
