Breathless Buffoonery

As the progressives' avant garde, futurists like Sara Robinson supply expertise in superficial semantics. In the leadup to Copenhagen, Ms. Robinson not only predicted the planetary prognosis, but also rewrote the past. All in a swoop, she asserts our carbon society has been cranking for 2,500 years and is thus the basis of all civilized humanity, which serves double duty in marginalizing indigenous peoples past and present, especially those who came to Copenhagen with solutions. She then proceeded to reassure those of us not blessed with her exceptional foresight, that the magical process she has discovered is already on auto pilot thanks to her heroic efforts. Breathless buffoonery at its best.

AMA On Cannabis

The American Medical Association thinks that maybe the federal controlled substance statutes are out of whack on marijuana. They'd like to see some clinical studies on its medicinal use before they take a position for or against legalization. Given that pot is classified by the feds as more dangerous than cocaine or methamphetamine, we'd say that's a reasonable request.
