From Wired: A huge "dead zone" of water so devoid of oxygen that sea life cannot live in it, an annual occurrence caused by pollution, has spread across 5,800 square miles of the Gulf of Mexico this summer.The extensive area of uninhabitable water may be contributing indirectly to an unusual spate of shark bites along the Texas coast, experts said. A scientist at the Louisiana Universities Marine Consortium said measurements showed the dead zone extends from the mouth of the Mississippi River in southeastern Louisiana 250 miles west to near the Texas border and was closer to shore than usual because of winds and currents.

The latest in the long line of conservative literary hack-jobs is Michelle Malkins new book "In Defense of Internment: The Case For "Racial Profiling." Yes, she actually defends the massive camps for Japanese-Americans and others during WWII, and tries to justify racial profiling, religious profiling and yes, internment camps during our current paranoid freak-out. Well, at the rate things in this country are going, there will soon be need for an internment camp apologist. Kudos, Michelle.
