Dems rush to save suddenly vulnerable incumbents
"Desperate Democrats are rushing to save suddenly vulnerable House incumbents, even in states where President Barack Obama cruised to double-digit victories...." [rdbrewer]

The Guardian: Suite scandal: why Bach's wife cannot take credit for his cello masterwork
"The theory got some attention, was dismissed by Bach scholars and then (I thought) died forever; but here it is again. ¶ Professor Jarvis is a charming and sincere man – I met him then to talk it over. But I’m afraid that his theory is pure rubbish. Anna Magdalena Bach did not write the Bach suites, any more than Anne Hathaway wrote Shakespeare’s plays...." Via Monty. [rdbrewer]

Fox News: Amelia Earhart plane fragment identified
The last time you saw this story, they had just found out it might be from her plane. Now they think it is. And it might be, but note that the company seeking the money for the expedition is the company that identified the fragment. More from Discovery. Via @DoreenHDickson. [rdbrewer]

It Was Obama Who Called Netanyahu 'Chickenshit'
Maybe. John Kerry thinks Netayahu is denying him his rightful Nobel Peace Prize. So, it's hard to tell. [rdbrewer]
Another flying car
Thing is, this one looks good. More at WaPo. [rdbrewer]

Kate Hahn: I Am Going to Start Ending Every Sentence With "Bitches," Bitches.
"I used to think that 'bitches' as a punctuation mark was affected—an attempt to appear carefree by co-opting nihilistic Breaking Bad gangster slang, bitches. But now I have to add it to anything just to be heard, bitches." [rdbrewer]

Nina Teicholz: The Last Anti-Fat Crusaders
"The top scientist guiding the U.S. government’s nutrition recommendations made an admission last month that would surprise most Americans.... Yet the experts now designing the next set of dietary recommendations remain mired in the same anti-fat bias and soft science that brought us the low-fat diet in the first place." [rdbrewer]

Discover Magazine: This Is Your Brain on Psychedelic Drugs
"Now some mathematicians have jumped into the fray, using a new mathematical technique to analyze the brains of people on magic mushrooms." [rdbrewer]

Timothy P. Carney: Kay Hagan's corporatism and cronyism enriches her campaign, family
"Hagan consistently votes for government to pick winners and losers — through grants, loan guarantees, and special one-time tax breaks. Those winners align very nicely with her donors, the companies she’s invested in, and even her own family’s bank account." Pig. [rdbrewer]

Ron Fournier: Millennials Bolt Obama for GOP in Midterms
" In a stunning turnaround, likely voters in the so-called millennial generation prefer a Republican-led Congress after next week's elections, and young Hispanics are turning sharply against President Obama." [rdbrewer]

Jonah Goldberg: Whatever, Margaret
Margaret Carlson seems unaware there is a point where exaggeration more closely resembles lying. Via @ComradeArthur. [rdbrewer]

The Register: Voyager 1 now EIGHTEEN LIGHT HOURS from home
And it still works. [rdbrewer]

K5: Breath test developed to detect disease [rdbrewer]

Greg Gutfeld: Bill Clinton's Startling Admission

Yahoo: Forgotten Corvette collection emerges from the dust after 25 years
"The story of how Max acquired the cars began in 1989, when music network VH1 held a contest to award a lucky viewer with a Corvette from every year of the model's existence, from 1953 to 1989." [rdbrewer]

CHE: 50 Years of Stupid Grammar Advice
"The Elements of Style does not deserve the enormous esteem in which it is held by American college graduates. Its advice ranges from limp platitudes to inconsistent nonsense. Its enormous influence has not improved American students' grasp of English grammar; it has significantly degraded it." [rdbrewer]

Ebola doctor ‘lied’ about NYC travels
"Dr. Craig Spencer at first told officials that he isolated himself in his Harlem apartment — and didn’t admit he rode the subways, dined out and went bowling until cops looked at his MetroCard the sources said." Nice going, hero. [rdbrewer]

Human Events: Heroic Ebola doctors and nurses lie to police, blow off voluntary isolation
"The notion of isolation and mandatory testing as some kind of insult has been taken to fetish levels by nurse Kaci Hickox, who has become something of an anti-isolation activist." One could be forgiven for thinking this martyr is in it for the recognition and the personal feel-goods more than, you know, actually serving others. Via @Slublog. [rdbrewer]

Daily Mail: Phil Collins brings the world's largest private Alamo collection - including Jim Bowie's legendary knife - 'back home' to Texas
What a great guy. Via @TheH2. [rdbrewer]
Another mammoth skeleton was found. I was going to provide a link, but mammoth skeleton. Added: @Juneslili says it's pretty cool, so here it is. [rdbrewer]

Video: Chicago Activists Unchained, Destroy Black Leadership
Via @Weirddave0. [rdbrewer]

Nobody Expects the Guy Caballero Democrats!
""Texas Democrat At Wendy Davis Event Said Greg Abbott 'Just Rolls Around’ In His Wheelchair...."" Also from Ed: Some idiot in the administration called Netanyahu a chickenshit. [rdbrewer]
Asking this question is a crime.
"Do you want, in this city and in the Netherlands, more or fewer Moroccans?"
ht @joethefatman1 [ArthurK]

Erik Wemple: The bizarre tale of Sharyl Attkisson’s spare wire
"He finds a 'stray cable dangling from the FiOS box attached to the brick wall on the outside of my house. It doesn’t belong.' 'Jeff' says the cable in question is an 'extra' fiber-optic line that could be used to download data and then send it off to another spot." [rdbrewer]

CNN: Charles Barkley: 'Brainwashed' blacks hold up success [rdbrewer]

MRC: Flummoxed Charlie Rose on Midterm Anger: 'Why Is It They Don't Like' Obama?
I mean, what's not to like? [rdbrewer]
Mediaite: Co-Founder of The Weather Channel: Global Warming Is a Complete Hoax
"He told Kelly it’s tough to get a media platform these days when you’re a climate skeptic 'ever since Al Gore made it a plank of the Democratic Party.'" Via @Benk84. [rdbrewer]

Benedict Cumberbatch To Play Doctor Strange
"The news comes after talks with Joaquin Phoenix around the time of Comic-Con went south, and Marvel went back to the drawing board. With names like Jared Leto and Tom Hardy also in the mix, this is obviously a coveted role." I don't think the author is completely certain, btw. [rdbrewer]

'Interstellar' Sneak Peek: We Have Seen It, and It's Awesome
"[T]he feeling inside the theater seemed to be that 'Interstellar,' which will hit theaters nationwide in the United States on Nov. 7, doesn't disappoint despite its considerable hype." [rdbrewer]

Hans von Spakovsky: Here Comes the 2014 Voter Fraud
"Progressives and the Justice Department are doing all they can to stop improvements in election integrity." [rdbrewer]

Krauthammer: Dems 'Overestimate' Hillary's Skill, 'She Is Not Getting The Elementary Stuff'
And as Tucker Carlson said last night on Hannity, I think, to paraphrase: Hillary Clinton is extraordinarily banal, and she needs to stick to the script. Something like that. She treats platitudes like truth bombs. [rdbrewer]

Erik Wemple: USA Today’s Susan Page: Obama administration most ‘dangerous’ to media in history
"Times executive editor Jill Abramson, who said, 'It is the most secretive White House that I have ever been involved in covering'; New York Times reporter James Risen, who said, 'I think Obama hates the press'; and CBS News’s Bob Schieffer, who said, 'This administration exercises more control than George W. Bush’s did, and his before that.'" [rdbrewer]
