Antonin G.F.Y. Scalia
Supreme Court, tackling its first case on climate change, appeared divided and
somewhat baffled Wednesday over how the government should respond to the warming
of the planet.
Justice Antonin Scalia, reflecting the skeptic's view, pressed the lawyer representing Massachusetts and other states how soon the dire effects of global warming would begin. "When is the predicted cataclysm?" Scalia asked, with some sarcasm.
"In the arguments, Justice Scalia said, 'I'm not a scientist, I don't want to deal with global warming.' I just wish he felt that way about presidential elections." --Former Vice President Al Gore, on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno

"President Bush is preparing to build his presidential library. ... Bush's is expected to cost $500 million. That's more than three times the cost of the Clinton library, and more than all the other libraries combined, which makes you wonder, how many Garfield books can there be?" --Jimmy Kimmel

Apparently their trip has caused what's known as chaos, to the point where, according to ABCNews.com, the American embassy and many Argentinian officials have strongly suggested the twins return to America. Just to repeat, Argentina, former safe-haven for Nazi war criminals, is drawing the line at the Bush twins." --Jon Stewart

A new analysis of the Antikythera Mechanism, consisting of more than 30 precise, hand-cut bronze gears, show it to be more advanced than previously thoughtóso much so that nothing comparable was built for another thousand years .(Photo/Louisa Gouliamaki)
