* Bush to sign the Intel reform bill today ... creates 'Director, National Intelligence' position
* Need $10k? Join the 'Guard ... they seem to be having some recruiting problems, $15k bonus for 'experienced soldiers'
* Gunman on the loose in LA Cathedral ... UPDATE: Gunman commits suicide ... in a church. Is that two strikes at once?
* DHS having some Security / Network problems? ... I happen to know a Network Engineer who has a keen interest in InfoSec (ahem) ...
* Major climate change occurred 5,200 years ago: evidence suggests that history could repeat itself

* Pfizer : Celebrex = Heart Risk ... well, when taken in 2x doses anyway ... Bextra a problem as well? ... and Pfizer stock tumbles a bit ... dragging everyone else down too

* Christmas is not illegal everywhere ... "Christian candy" is OK
* Some thoughts on the global impacts of the dollar's slide ... alarmist or realistic?
* Man saves 4 from burning house ... in Heampstead
* "new ballots" found in Wash (State, not DC) ... Dems trying to steal another election?

Interesting
* Fascinating (and long) read on ID, Evolution, Creationism, etc. ... and two of the supporting links: ... and
* SF trying to outlaw all firearms? ... and some thoughts on that from Digger
* Let's take a peek at how the UN treats 'whistle-blowers'
