HOT5 Daily 5/21/2009

1. "The six biggest myths currently confusing policymakers" Some good analysis.

Representative Sample: Solving the Israeli-Palestinian issue is the key to Middle East peace.

2. "A little Military motivation"  Entertaining motivational posters.

Representative Sample: It's a series of graphics.

3. "Shafer Parker, Answered" Answering another attack on atheists.

Representative Sample: Atheists are not "certain" that there is/are no god(s), we recognize that there is absolutely no evidence for the existence of said and live our lives as though there were no god(s) up there (or down there or under there) watching us on some celestial CCTV.

4. "On War #305: The Future is Now" If you don't have enough to worry about, read this.

Representative Sample: In their collective hubris, modern people seem to have forgotten what the plague did. It brought down a whole civilization, the Middle Ages

5. "Why Fewer Murder Cases Get Solved These Days" Examines an interesting study.

Representative Sample: Another finding of note is that, not surprisingly, media coverage can be a double-edged sword. It can focus attention on a particular case but also flood local police departments with so many phone calls regarding alleged leads that legitimate leads prove harder to find and pursue.
