Amnesty International, that well-known right wing conspiracy organization just came up with disturbing news. According to AI, Hamas, which governs the Gaza Strip, took advantage of the chaos last summer during the war between it and Israel to assassinate:

Bastard Israelis! Another reason to boycott Israel: It causes nice Palestinians to become assassins!
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration just announced a light hurricane season. Not much is going to go on, it says.
Also: “Dr. Philip Lloyd, a South Africa-based physicist and climate researcher, examined ice core-based temperature data going back 8,000 years to gain perspective on the magnitude of global temperature changes over the 20th Century.” His conclusion is that the last hundred years of temperature rise are probably not caused by human activity. This guy is not just a denier like me. He used to belong to the United Nations International Panel on Climate Change.
