Traveling is hard on the digestive system — especially long flights from places like Amsterdam. So here’s a little tip to help you find your Pepto Bismol in a crowded suitcase when seconds count.
An article in the New York Times about bedbugs tells us what one expert does after staying in a hotel. In addition to tearing apart the bed, he keeps his luggage and clothes in the bathroom and gives the whole package a steam treatment.
Welcome to a “twitterview” (interview conducted live on Twitter) featuring Lance Godard, host of the blog 22 Tweets (@22Twts). Mr. Godard was interviewed by Cliff Tuttle of Pittsburgh Legal Back Talk (PittsburghLegal) on August 24, 2010 to celebrate its 500th post.

ts very interesting to listen to the thinking processes of talk show hosts and callers as they discuss the reasons why, in their view, the proposed “Cordoba Mosque” should not be permitted to be built in the same neighborhood as Ground Zero. The gist is that jihadist terrorists are laughing at us or having one over on us. “Yes, I believe in the First Amendment, but …”, they begin.
The obvious importance of this case is that Range is a major player in the Western Pennsylvania Marcellus Shale field and has already leased many thousands of acres. It is likely continue to lease for many years and there will undoubtedly be many more disputes over bonuses, rentals and royalties under the same or a similar document.

Don’t bother them with the details — somebody else is in charge of that anyway.
Interesting. Certain politicians and a lot of ordinary people state that they are very insulted by the proposal to build a mosque quite close to Ground Zero.
