And I Feel Fine....

....And I feel fine....

If it is going to happen it'll be within 6 months. Nice to have a deadline.

Doomsday: How BP Gulf disaster may have triggered a world-killing event - by Terrence Aym - Helium:
"Now, worried scientists are increasingly concerned the same series of catastrophic events that led to worldwide death back then may be happening again-and no known technology can stop it.

The bottom line: BP’s Deepwater Horizon drilling operation may have triggered an irreversible, cascading geological Apocalypse that will culminate with the first mass extinction of life on Earth in many millions of years.

The oil giant drilled down miles into a geologically unstable region and may have set the stage for the eventual premature release of a methane mega-bubble."

Awsum. Liz helped Obama kill the Public Option.

Daily Kos: Obama Hires Fmr. Wellpoint Exec to Implement Health Care Law:
"Liz Fowler, a key staffer for U.S. Sen. Max Baucus who helped draft the federal health reform bill enacted in March, is joining the Obama administration to help implement the new law...

Fowler headed up a team of 20-some Senate Finance Committee staffers who helped draft the bill in the Senate. She was Baucus' top health care aide from 2001-2005 and left that job in 2006 to become an executive at WellPoint, the nation's largest private insurer. She was vice president of public policy at WellPoint, helping develop public-policy positions for the company. In 2008, she rejoined Baucus to work on health reform legislation."

Says a lot.

Was a fan back in the day. Wonder how it will translate.
