Lines Overlapping: Literally kicked out of a Live Nation venue for tweeting -
Look, I wasn’t bothering anyone at all. I was just sitting quietly in my seat between acts tweeting a friend. Apparently, that is a crime in Silicon Valley, California, at least at a Live Nation concert venue.
Shoreline Amphitheatre is managed by Live Nation and situated in the heart of Silicon…
India’s Forgotten Chinese Internment Camp
Michael Cheng was six years old in 1962 when the police came to take him and his family away. They arrived, armed and in force, in the middle of the night. Some of the officers, many of whom had known the Chengs for years, were apologetic. They were just following orders, the men assured Michael’s mother, and the family was being taken somewhere safe “for your own good.”
The Cheng family wasn’t the only one. Andy Hsieh was a student at a boarding school in Shillong, in northeast India. One day, he and several of his classmates were called into the headmaster’s office and told that they would be going away for an indefinite length of time.
When police came for Wong Ying Sheng’s family, they were packed and ready to go. Wong’s mother had escaped the Japanese invasion of Singapore and knew the signs.

As many of you know, I’m a lifelong fan of the Washington pro football team and I totally support this.
In an admittedly small gesture, Mother Jones is…tweaking our house style guide, joining Slate and a group of other publications, from The New Republicto Washington City Paper. From here on out, we will refer to the team online and in print as “Washington” or “Washington’s pro football team” or, if we get sassy, “the Washington [Redacted].”
Read why we’re doing it.
I have been thinking about what’s the logic behind the recent outburst of GOP leaders and surrogates like Jack Welch and Steve Forbes to the favorable job numbers claiming that the numbers were cooked.
I have a pretty good hypothesis. It’s because that’s what they do! Whenever, they needed to move on something, they cook the books. As a result, they are projecting their own logic on to Obama.
Here are some examples:

This is so cool! I can’t wait until these things become mainstream.
@bfeld I decided to give SkyDrive a try … been using it for two weeks and it is awesome. Stunningly awesome. Perfect.
More from the article:
Two weeks ago I decided to move everything to Word as we started the final push to getting the publisher draft out (which is due on 10/12/12). As part of this, I decided to give SkyDrive a try and see if we could both work on the document at the same time in Word.
We’ve been using it for two weeks and it is awesome. Stunningly awesome. Perfect. We can work in the browser and that’s fine for short things, but the beauty is we can download the doc into Word and it automagically keeps our edits in sync on the server. We can both work in Word – online or offline – at the same time and when we connect all the changes get updated to the server and then pushed down to our individual copies of Word. In short, it does exactly what you’d expect it to do. And – we are both using Word on the Mac – which is solid and a nice surprise to me that any of this really works on the Mac given my generally miserable Microsoft + Mac software experience.
I’m blown away. I also can’t believe no one knows about it or is talking about Microsoft SkyDrive. I can’t believe Microsoft isn’t promoting it front and center. Or maybe they are and I’m just missing it. — http://venturebeat.com/2012/09/23/microsofts-cloud-service-skydrive-is-great-and-no-one-has-noticed/

Their blatant hypocrisy and double standards have to have consequences. I just don’t know when it’s going to hit them. We as a society have to call this out.
Read this article by @motherjones on them revealing Mark Owen’s identity.
Owen is the author of No Easy Day.
He is also a professional, hero and a patriot everything that Fox News is not.
