Patriot Act Showdown and More...

Looks as if renewing the Patriot Act is running into some significant bipartisan opposition. Now that there's the threat of a filibuster there seems to be some interest in putting off the reauthorization vote since they may not get enough votes in the Senate to overcome the resistance.

Hey, the House just agreed with John McCain that we shouldn't torture prisoners. At this rate I'm beginning to think anything can happen.

And now for something completely different - Nature has just reported that the Wikipedia has some mistakes in their articles on science. The real surprise is that they found the Encyclopaedia Britannica has nearly as many.
