    Via Juan Cole : “Out of Sight, Out of Mind, aims to capture the scale and human cost of the drone war in Pakistan through its visual representation of the CIA’s covert Pakistan drone war from the first event in 2004 to the latest strike.”

    Kudos to Mr. Ratigan on his venture into the world of small business capitalism (with significant help from Whole Foods). Maybe Dylan will start a trend of small business operations actually coming to high tax California instead of leaving the state.

    It took guts to walk away from the money to chase a dream based upon principle. Involving ex-vets is a wonderful game plan. One can’t help but wish him all the best as he enters into the realm of meaningful productivity after a career in cable news.

    Re: Russia money laundering in Cyprus

    The holier-than-thou Northern Europeans wanted to impose substantial haircuts on all those Russian laundering money through Cypress. In an interview I heard on the BBC this afternoon, a Cypriot lawyer with lots of Russian clients said that he has gotten 200-300 email from Northern European bankers asking him to send his clients up to them. I suppose all that Russian money isn’t too dirty for them to touch. He also mentioned that Russians living in Cypress are generally employees of Russian companies; the oligarchs live in Monaco or London (could have added New York to that).

    And how much big Russian money was there? A Russian lawyer in Cypress interviewed as part of the same segment said his big clients had been moving their money out over the past year. They are not fools.

    Cyprus should just leave the Euro. the alternative is a long depression with little likelihood of recovery

    so why not just leave now?

    Big problems at Walmart:

    I’ve noticed it also. Been looking for some black Wrangler cargo pants that the website claims are in stock in stores. I found one pair at a store further out but they were defective so I returned them to the store nearest my house, pointing out the defect which the lady acknowledged. When I went back a week later, I was happy to find a pair of the pants I was looking for. Turned out to be the same ones I had returned.

    NPR has an excellent and alarming story about how Social Secuity Disability has taken the place of unemployment for many. There is a written version, a 20 minute podcast from Planet Money and the entire our of This American Life is dedicated to it.

    Here’s the written version:
