Mid-Week Musings

Crossing from story to story on a chilly Wednesday morning:

Rebellion: Over 40 Labour MP backbenchers are planning to vote against Labour government's refusal to grant immigration status to the UK's Gurkha veterans.

Tasteless: Congenital amputee loses his first mixed martial arts fight. And yet, Kyle Maynard's dogged determination softens any blanket condemnation; the guy's got guts: “I accomplished everything I wanted to short of winning that fight”...

Blow-out: Fox News beat CNN and MSNBC combined in every hour from 6amET to MidnightET in both Total Viewers and the A25-54 demo for April 2009 .

Wild: Police chase car-jacked truck while desparate owner risks like to hang on to the back of the racing rig.

A new book for my Anti-Library: Thomas Sowell's "The Housing Boom and Bust". "[I]n politics, power trumps knowledge."
