  • ForeignPolicy.com: “…the claim repeatedly made by President Obama and his senior aides — that targeted [drone] killings are limited only to officials, members, and affiliates of al Qaeda who pose an imminent threat of attack on the U.S. homeland — is false.”
  • Night photographer Troy Paiva: “You can’t do this kind of photography if you spook easily, because yes, these places can be creepy in daylight. At night the creep factor really spikes. But a lot of those spooky feelings are bred into us — from a very early age we’re taught to be scared of abandoned places. That they are inhabited by ghosts and demons, that no good can come of visiting them. It’s been a common literary trope for 100 generations, so long that it’s practically stamped on us genetically. I’ve never seen a ghost, and I’ve spent nights in dozens of supposedly haunted places. I’ve experienced a lot of things that people could interpret as ghosts, but were easily explained away as wind under the eaves, or animals in the walls. And even if there really were ghosts, what can they do to me?”

  • More Kalder: “For the Mullahs of Iran, America is the Great Satan and they are the servants of God. But while God’s people just unveiled the interstellar equivalent of a vacuum tube in a big brown box, Satan is kicking back and watching porn on a 90-inch 3D HD flat screen while sipping on a brewski.”
  • Still more Kalder:  “For too long Russia has been a place from which people flee, and not a haven for those seeking refuge. Russia would make an especially good home for all those actors who have declined in their homelands but remain popular in the East. For instance, Chuck Norris — I know he’s an ironic icon in America, but he was a bona fide god in Moscow in the 1990s.”
