I thought they had already found a bunch of bodies awhile ago... maybe that was somewhere else...

But what can be done about it?

I think trying to unite the Syrian opposition is really the most important thing. Assad is unlikely to survive either way, but the key thing is making sure that there is a single, accountable opposition. That way other countries (hello Qatar?) can help the opposition out without worrying about fuelling mass sectarian violence.

http://dailycurrant.com/2012/08/30/bill-nye-blasts-todd-akin-challenges-debate/ WARNING: THERE ARE PORTUGALS IN THIS ARTICLE

This has to be one of the funniest things I've ever read, not just for the idiocy of the congressman, but also Bill Nye's sterling reaction.

Seems like a pretty crappy way of keeping chickens, frankly. Open air, free range living, etc, for poultry may seem like luxuries or silly but they do really make a difference in some situations.
