-Short Attention Span Theater-
Thousands of iPads Stolen from JFK
My apologies to Dr. Steve and you, dear Reader. He originally posted this article a few hours ago with clever in-line commentary. I just now accidentally deleted it -- what you see is a mere replacement post, so at least you know what all the fuss is about.

Mea culpa. Mea maxima culpa.

#1  They were iProds and thousands of Texans are very unhappy. Was the robbery carried out with revolutionary veal?

#2  Well, it's only a daughter.

Not only that, he's a 'Prominent' Saudi Religious Scholar. I'm failing to see what all the fuss is about.

Europe
Eurozone falls back into recession
The eurozone has returned to recession as the region's debt crisis continues to hurt demand, figures show.

The economy of the 17-nation bloc contracted by 0.1% between July and September, after shrinking 0.2% in the previous three months, Eurostat said.

The eurozone was last in recession in 2009, when the economy contracted for five consecutive quarters.

The news comes a day after millions of workers in Europe held a day of action against austerity measures.

Protests in Spain, Italy and Portugal were marred by violence.

Countries such as Greece and the Republic of Ireland that have been bailed out by international lenders continue to see their economies shrink. Meanwhile larger economies such as Spain have imposed spending cuts in an attempt to avoid having to ask for a bailout.

"This [the fall into recession] was totally expected because of austerity policies combined with world growth slowing down and a dramatic fall in activity in Germany and the Netherlands," said Steen Jakobsen, chief economist at Saxo Bank.

"The last couple of days have created a new momentum for a major change in policy input, because up until this week, social tension was not part of equation. It seems like the tone has shifted dramatically."

Wouldn't it be easier to call them 'riots' instead?

#1  I hope they kept the rotary carousels for the cruise missiles.

#2  The B-52 is just a flying truck. Thus the B-52, despite its age, was the cheapest, safest, and most reliable way to deliver smart bombs over Afghanistan.
We're exactly the same age.

#3  Glenmore, that's the amazing thing about the BUFF. The airframes were built before the crews were even born.
