Interesting article and photo of something seen by two kayakers on England's largest lake - Lake Windermere. Interesting that the first reported sighting was just five years ago.

If you Intercepted a Shipment of Rockets Bound for the Taliban, From Whence Would you Guess They Came ?
Ok, maaaaybe you'd think Syria or maaaaybe you'd think North Korea. Nope.
No, I'm guessing that the "Buy Local" campaign, which has bumper stickers and window signs all over my neighborhood, has finally reached the Taliban and they in turn have reached out, mullah to mullah to buy good Iranian rockets rather going to the suburbs or even (gasp!) to the Walmarts of International arms sales.
So remember, be it rockets, tomatoes or shaving cream, Buy Local.

This op/ed by Mitt Romney has the usual political rhetoric, but think that he has some very good points in talking about the debt, creating private sector jobs, and that only increasing the taxable income - NOT by increasing the tax rate, can we bring the deficit down and sustain an economic recovery.
You might or might not agree, but I hope that seeing the name of a GOP leader doesn't preclude anyone from reading through the points he makes about what he feels needs to be done. THAT is what we need today, the ability to talk civilly about what must be done to solve our serious financial problems.
Anyway, I found his suggestions very much worthwhile.
