Sunday Morning News: Revising Illnesses, Tunnel Collapse, IT Guy Arrested

Posted by on Sun, Dec 2, 2012 at 8:59 AM

Homo Military Chapel: West Point Academy's Cadet Chapel hosted a same-sex wedding for the first time yesterday.

DSM's a Changin': Changes to the DSM, one of the most widely-used psychiatric reference manuals, were announced Saturday. "Asperger's disorder" is just one illness that will not appear in the revised Diagnostic and Statistical Manuel due out in May.

Tunnel Collapse: Motorists are trapped after a tunnel collapsed 50 miles west of Tokyo. Resulting car fires within the tunnel lead rescuers to expect at least seven people are dead.

Inaugural Protests: Enrique Pena Nieto was sworn in as Mexico's new president yesterday, prompting protestors to break shit.

No, You Shut Up: Israel will build wherever it damn-well pleases, Netanyahu said. His country also won't recognize the United Nations' resolution granting Palestine non-member observer status.

Prime Real Estate: Will the State of Washington move a penal colony full of violent sexual predators so it can develop McNeil Island?

No More Running: After running from authorities for weeks, anti-virus software guru John McAfee was captured by police in Belize yesterday in connection with his neighbor's murder.

No Abuse, Sir: Bradley Manning's former detention guards deny that Manning was treated cruelly, contradicting what an UN rapporteur on torture has concluded was cruel and inhumane treatment of Manning, the Freedom of Information's uncrowned prince.

Green Pressure: Japan wants to pressure the U.S. and China to clean up their environmental acts and actually do something to mitigate global climate change. Will that ever happen?

Here's a time lapse of commercial air travel on Black Friday:

Dammit. That video is going to have me scratching my head all day. It must be a montage.

San Diego's First Avenue Bridge is shown, but if the planes are landing the airport is to the left of the frame and the west side of the bridge is shown; therefore sunlight is on the wrong side of the bridge for the stated 10:30am - 3:00pm time interval.

The bridge is less than a mile from the east end of the mainly E-W runway but is nearly as far north of the runway alignment, and the planes are on glidepath many miles to the east when landing on Runway 27.

And the clouds are shown moving in the same direction as the planes, whereas landings and takeoffs are done into the wind.

@1: And also it's strange that the clouds would hold that same formation for 4 1/2 hours.

That island would be a good place for building a combo solar-wind farm and hydrogen generation facility.

That video is not a "time lapse". Looks more like an animated representation.

Oh, look, Israel's ignoring the UN again. How shocking.

The 50-Year Mark, Part 1

Let the word go forth from this day on, a new generation has been born.
Born to the task to keep us free, but proud of the rights of the Home country.
This is the new frontier, this is the new frontier.
(Kinston Trio)

We are quickly approaching the 50-year mark of the murder of the New Frontiersman, President John F. Kennedy, and 50,000 documents on his murder are still classified --- the Speaker of the House, John Boehner, is a Navy boot camp washout of a drunken loser --- Erskine Bowles, the Rockefeller-Peterson-Kissinger stooge, who sits on the board of directors of Morgan Stanley, while his wife sits on the board of directors of JPMorgan Chase, was appointed to a committee by President Obama to help his fellow neocons create that distracting fiction called the "fiscal cliff" --- what the bloody Hell is wrong with this Hollywood PR script?????

When Alexander Hamilton (and his son), Abraham Lincoln, John F. Kennedy, Malcolm X, Martin Luther King, Jr., Bobby Kennedy, and Paul Wellstone (and members of his family) were slain, the plutocrats proclaimed, "Mission accomplished!" --- their objective achieved. Those assassinated historically face the massive revisionism of the dead, but let those who labored mightily on the public's behalf not have perished in vain.

The List:

Battling Wall Street: the Kennedy presidency, by Donald Gibson

Brothers: The Hidden History of the Kennedy Years, by David Talbot

Family of Secrets, by Russ Baker

Thy Will Be Done, by Gerard Colby with Charlotte Dennett

JFK and the Unspeakable, by James Douglass

The Kennedy Assassination Cover-up, by Donald Gibson

A Terrible Mistake, by H.P. Albarelli

The Echo From Dealey Plaza, by Abraham Bolden

Eight books --- that's all, just eight books --- but most Americans haven't read a single book the last year, and most Americans are still clueless as to the causes of the recent economic meltdown.

Honorable mention: Shane O'Sullivan's, Who Killed Bobby?

In one lengthy chapter in his book, Shane wastes precious time and resources and realizes he's been Psy Op'd --- but even then, Shane mentions the CIA's Joannides and his trip to New Orleans to set up Oswald for his fall as "they patsy" in a crucial and little-known event.

If only Shane had the time to dig more deeply into the family background of Valerie Schulte and their employment at Lockheed, and how it connected to Thane Cesar's Lockheed employment, and how Lockheed's chief of security then was the former personal US Secret Service agent to Vice President Richard Nixon --- who left the US Secret Service for Lockheed when Vice President Nixon lost his presidential bid --- and would later leave Lockheed after the RFK assassination to rejoin Nixon as his security for his 1968 presidential campaign.

Would Nixon have won the presidency in 1968 if JFK, MLK and RFK hadn't been murdered?


Would Johnson have been president in 1964 if JFK hadn't been murdered?


Some to the rivers and some to the sea.
Some to the soil that our fathers made free.
Then on to the stars in the heav'ns for to see.
This is the new frontier, this is the new frontier.

Is Japan still slaughtering whales? If so, they can eat a hot bowl of dicks.

Just because Japan is doing something awful doesn't mean they can't call us on something more awful. Climate change change not doing most (all?) whales any favors.

You'd think a nerdgasm like that would at least note the difference between time-lapse photography and video composite. And then maybe realize that the foreground and background are simply two elements on the stack.

My job as first commenter, as I see it, is to say something expanding on, or tangential to, the original post.

Your job as twelfth commenter, as you see it, is to try and make it look like an earlier commenter never had another thought flit through his head than what he took two minutes to type in a little rectangle.

The job of all commenters is to spew words that, at the end of the day, the year, or the Internet Era, don't amount to a hill of beans.

Everybody wins!

Seriously unpaid? "rapporteur" and "manuel"

Can't believe I'm the first grammar nazi in the thread.
