HOT5 Daily 2/22/2009

1. "The List of Things That Offend Muslims" From 2007. The list is probably much longer by now.

Representative Sample: The intent of the list is to illustrate the futility of the multicultural approach to Islam.

2. "India needs a lot more love from Obama" The Obama administration needs to maintain and strengthen our relationship with India.

Representative Sample: The construction of a strategic partnership with India was arguably President Bush's signal foreign policy accomplishment.

3. "A pox upon this vermin" Zimbabwe celebrates Mugabe's birthday. There sure is a lot to celebrate.

Representative Sample: The country’s bankrupt public sector used tens of thousands of US dollars – now the currency in Zimbabwe – to place large newspaper advertisements congratulating the president.

4. "Prosecutors Waste Time on Teenage Sex" Stupid laws and stupid prosecutors.

Representative Sample:  no violence was involved; how is this a crime? And why are prosecutors even wasting time trying to meddle in the sexual affairs of teenagers?

5. "Get to know " Best Before""  Are you aware of the endowment effect? Interesting article.

Representative Sample: to what extremes can this endowment effect influence our eating habits?
