Look! Stuff that has nothing to do with self-professed anarchists! 🙂

American pilot – who happens to be a convert to Islam – sues government for placing him on a watch list; government responds that “religious and political affiliation does not impact” ones’ inclusion on such a list. Don’t you feel better now?

Somali pirates seize the fourth commercial vessel in as many months. Apparently, not only are the ships and crews held for ransom, but the negotiations take forever. Glad to see those counter-piracy patrols are working…

Microsoft clues in to Internet Explorer security issues – too little, far, far too late.

Get ’em while you can – Chicago 2016 Olympic t-shirts are already available. 🙂
