The Constant Search
And here is the story.
Here, I believe, is the real reason Texas has had rolling blackouts and the need to import power from Mexico.
Texas has the most wind generators of any state and when it gets really cold, the wind dies down. Oh, and the need for electricity goes up. Result: rolling blackouts and the need to import power from somewhere that isn't squandering its energy assets on unreliable, intermittent power.

From Manning's Lawyer saying, in reference to their assertion in the previous article that Manning is being treated no different than any other inmate, that they're full of shit:
Oh, and further abuses to Manning's rights as an inmate awaiting trial (so much for "innocent until proven guilty"):

His hearing is tentatively scheduled for the summer, pending an investigation into his psychological condition. But once he's acquitted, maybe we can just throw him into Guantanamo for "plans of terrorism" and he can rot there until he dies, since you seem so eager to lump him together with other terror suspects.

It is the responsibility of everyone in uniform to disobey an order that is either illegal or immoral. He shouldn't be charged for doing his duty as a good soldier.
