Ohio WalMart holds food drive so that its employees can contribute food to other employees. No, this is not The Onion -- this is our sick, immoral, and decadent society, where overpaid executives making millions of dollars congratulate the generosity their poorly-paid workers exhibit toward their coworkers.
ProPublica reports that Karl Rove's dark money organization, Crossroads GPS, received fifty donations of over $1 million in 2012 -- including individual donations of $22.5 million, $18 million, and $10 million -- but we'll never know who these folks are, since Crossroads GPS is a "social welfare non-profit." You have to wonder why someone with $18 million to throw around doesn't do something good with it. Then again, that $18 million donor might well be asking why Crossroads GPS spent his or her money trying to elect the likes of Josh Mandel and Richard Mourdock.
Healthcare.gov ain't the only government website having problems -- Recalls.gov, now a little over 10 years old, still suffers from a variety of issues, including user-unfriendly design, cumbersome search features, and a frustrating lack of organization. Users also call the mobile recalls.gov app "absolutely useless," which is no small matter in a world moving ever more of its tasks to the cell phone. Still, we should fix it, not ditch it.
Finally, U.S. District Court Judge Denny Chin upholds the legality of Google Books. Judge Chin ruled that Google Books constitutes "fair use" of copyrighted works under the Copyright Act, further noting that Google Books is more a research tool than a book-reading tool (indeed, Google goes to some length to prevent folks from using it as such) and thus adds value to the works, rather than depriving their copyright holders of value.
