Good ending to a bad abduction:
ATLANTA, April 23 (UPI) -- Willie Myrick, a 9-year-old boy from Atlanta, is playing in his front yard.I got to wondering about this song, “Every Praise”, so I looked it up:
He notices some money on the ground, bends to pick it up.
Someone grabs him, throws him in a car, pulls away.
“He told me he didn’t want to hear a word from me,” Myrick said.
But Willie refused to be quiet. He sang.
He sang a gospel song called “Every Praise” and he did not stop singing, not when his kidnapper told him to shut up, not when he cursed him or screamed at him.
Willie would not be silenced.
Willie sang and sang for hours, until the kidnapper finally let him go.
"He opened the door and threw me out," Willie said. "He told me not to tell anyone."
1) And I mean no disrespect to the music, but I can see how this could get old after the first few hours.
2) There is every chance this guy will get caught because someone hears him humming “Every Praise” over and over nonstop.
I mean, three things:
3) Now it's stuck in your head too.

James Taranto has the latest on the former Enron adviser, Paul Krugman:
Being a "distinguished professor" of economics at the City University of New York is nice work if you can get it. "During year-one," the boss explains in a letter to the new hire, "you will not be expected to teach or supervise students." In subsequent years, "you will teach one seminar per year." In addition, the boss informs the distinguished professor that he "will play a modest role in our public events" and "will be asked to contribute to the buildup" of one of the university's programs.
The pay is $225,000 a year, plus a $10,000 expense budget--and the distinguished prof gets summers off.
Gawker.com reports that CUNY's new distinguished professor is none other than former Enron adviser Paul Krugman. The program he'll be helping build up in exchange for this generous compensation is the Luxembourg Income Study Center and particularly its "inequality initiative."
Isn't that rich?
Yes, it turns out lamenting income inequality can be quite a lucrative occupation.
It's fun to watch Democrats search for distractions from their "accomplishments", like Obamacare, the IRS scandal, and Benghazi. It seems like resentment of the rich is their next big thing.
Of course, rich people lamenting income inequality could actually work. After all, look at how the biggest CO2 spewers on the planet seem to have credibility amongst the Warmists.

I got into a fight one time with a really big guy, and he said, “I’m going to mop the floor with your face.”
I said, “You’ll be sorry.”
He said, “Oh yeah? Why?”
I said, “Well, you won’t be able to get into the corners very well.”
I was walking down fifth avenue today and I found a wallet, and I was gonna keep it, rather than return it, but I thought: well, if I lost a hundred and fifty dollars, how would I feel?
And I realized I would want to be taught a lesson.

Oh, solar power this, solar power that, oh endangered animal, oh we have to bail out the banks... See what happens? Now Russian tank technology has leapfrogged us and we're playing catch-up.

I don't necessarily support militias, after all anyone can start one. But I'm also not sure I support our swat-enhanced bureaucrats.
Caution - language
Well this just doesn't look right. The page:
www.blm.gov/ nv/ st/ en/ fo/ lvfo/ blm_programs/ more/ trespass_cattle/ history_of_trepass.print.html
is gone, but if you google that page and pull up the cached version, it does look like they're stealing Bundy's cattle to make way for solar development. Bundy doesn't deserve this kind of treatment .
This should also bring up the cached page.
At least that explains the "endangered tortoise" blather. I grew up wondering why it was tortoises could forage next to cows and never get stepped on. But they do it. Maybe they're like Lego blocks for cows. Cows soon learn not to step on them.
MSNBC, CNN, CBS, ABC, they can all google that cached page. Now lets see if they do.

Theirs has got eye-tracking sensors and probes that go I don't want to know where; but this machine is probably just as accurate.
