  • In light of the terrorist killings in France last week, a speech given by Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi is particularly interesting because of who it was addressed to.  Glen Reynolds addresses it in his USA Today column.

  • This week’s new candidate for the Darwin Awards. Guy tries to rob woman in front of Marine Corps recruiting office. I don’t see a big career as a criminal mastermind for this guy.

  • Here’s some very good news. I bet you had no idea of the health benefits of drinking whiskey. Try weight loss, slowing down the onset of dementia (of course we all feel a bit smarter and more debonair after a few cocktails), boosting good cholesterol, fighting cancer, eliminating blood clots, and strengthening the immune system. Now I’m ready for the medical study proving what I’ve always suspected, the major positive health effects of eating bacon.

  • Speaking of bacon, here’s a neat trick to go with your next rasher of bacon. Make a few hard boiled scrambled eggs. These work great when you don’t have time to put a good breakfast on the table for your child before he/she/it heads out the door in the morning.

  • As long as we’re making this the food issue, here’s a great way to peel and eat an orange.

  • Prince Alwaleed bin Talal believes $100/bbl oil is a thing of the past. I think the world would welcome oil prices somewhere between $75-$90 with stability.
