Florida Senate race moves to “Lean Republican”

Florida’s three-way Senate race between former state House Speaker Marco Rubio (R), Gov. Charlie Crist (I) and Rep. Kendrick Meek (D) is one of the marquee contests of the 2010 election cycle. It also appears to have moved in Rubio’s favor since the Aug. 24 primary and, as a result, we are moving the Senate contest from “toss up” to “lean Republican”. Washington Post

NASA incompetent — or just lying to us?

This is the latest plan NASA is considering to get us to infinity and beyond. It would break the shuttle into pieces. It would take the engines off the orbiter, put them on the bottom of the fuel tank, and throw the rest of the orbiter away. Then it would put the astronauts in a capsule on top of the fuel tank. It’s sort of like putting Mr. Potato Head’s nose where his hat used to be, and switching his arms and ears around. Orlando Sentinel
