Don't look for thorough analysis like this from the mainstream media or even from CNBC. But bet that certain members of Congress are paying attention, which is why this proposal won't go anywhere.
Lost Egyptian pyramids have been rediscovered using infrared satellite technology. The implications from these findings are staggering, as archeology now has a tool for searching for lost sites the world over. It might be a good time to get into archeology!
How Wikileaks vindicated Bush's anti-terrorism strategy, from Donald Rumsfeld in the Washington Post.

How Bin Laden emailed without being detected by the US. It is amazing what one can do with a few flash drives. The strategy makes perfect sense, and illustrates how simple it is to avoid being tracked in the digital age.

NPR hires firm to lobby for its taxpayer funding. Wow. Somehow I think their efforts might backfire.
