In case you were wondering how "signature" drone strikes work, Cora Currier at ProPublica tells you what we know -- which isn't all that much, since the Obama Administration won't come clean about it. Spoiler alert: our government probably isn't even following the rules it's spent time thinking up for itself.
Supreme Court dismisses the anti-warrantless wiretapping lawsuit brought by Amnesty International, among others. Because the plaintiffs couldn't prove they had standing to sue. Because they couldn't prove they had actually been victims of warrantless wiretapping. Because our government keeps whom they spy upon secret. In a complete shock, the decision was yet another 5-4.
Federal judge throws out Dow Chemical bid to recover $1 billion in alleged tax deductions for actions between 1993 and 2003, saying the attempted deductions did not represent legitimate business purposes; judge also imposes a penalty for activities during the final six years of that period. Goldman-Sachs is involved, too; let me go look for my surprised face.
Taco Bell follows Burger King and IKEA in admitting that its U.K. products contain horse meat, only after England's Food Standards Agency finds horse DNA, of course. Taco Bell has only three locations in England at present; I'm going to go out on a limb and say they're not going to establish any more any time soon.
Virginia Governor Bob McDonnell (R) restores the right to vote for about a thousand non-violent felons, which he's done for some 3,600 others as Governor. Oh, and one of them was Lewis "Scooter" Libby, convicted in the Valerie Plame case, you might remember. I might not have made that the headline if I were the Idaho Statesman. Anyway, this is a good start; no one should lose their right to vote because they've committed a crime, as if whatever price they pay for what they've done isn't enough.
