Hawaii Governor To Combat Birthers
He's most definitely not a Birther:

Neil Abercrombie, who was a friend of Obama’s parents when the president was a baby, has only been governor of Hawaii for less than three weeks, but he’s said in interviews this week that he’s already initiated a process to make policy changes that would allow Hawaii to release additional evidence that Obama was born in Honolulu on Aug. 4, 1961.
But he may do more to put the whole controversy to rest than Obama has ever done. I've always assumed that Obama was born in Hawaii but there was something embarrassing on his long form birth certificate. That or he's just neurotically private about any personal information.


NY Mayor Bloomberg Was " In Cahoots" With Planners of Ground Zero Mosque
Thanks to a FOIA lawsuit we find out that the Mayor was not a disinterested party:

And when he wasn't calling the mosque opponents names, he was proclaiming there should be no compromise. What the Arrogant Mayor neglected to mention during any of his many rants is that the Ground Zero Mosque fight was fixed from the beginning. The Mayor had his top aides helping the mosque planners, writing letters for them and helping them politically navigate around the anti-mosque forces.

Ireland Undergoing a Slow Motion Bank Run
What happens when accounts in teetering banks are backed by national a government that is bankrupt? Well nothing good. Which is why people have been steadily pulling their money from Irish banks.

Finally: An Advance in Beer Technology
Dispensing beer through magnetic valves in the glass bottom means less foam:

A small magnetic circle on the bottom of the glass is pushed up when put onto the beer dispenser. It then fills up and doesn’t foam up with a huge head like drawing a glass from a tap.

No truce in Afghanistan

How To Get Your Girlfriend To Dump You
