Exxon doesn’t just hate your children! They also really hate free speech, too!

The Daily Beast has the scoop: It looks like Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) is under investigation by the Office of Congressional Ethics for alleged misuse of campaign funds. Maybe they’ll get around to the way she stiffed her Iowa staffers too?

NPR has done several stories on the intriguing effects of ketamine on the brain. This morning I heard “How An Unlikely Drug Helps Some Children Consumed By Fear“. Late last year they presented “Ketamine Relieves Depression By Restoring Brain Connections“. Fascinating stuff!

A vial of deadly virus has disappeared from University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston on Saturday. The sample of Guanarito virus causes Venezuelan hemorrhagic fever (VHF) which has a recorded case  fatality rate of 23.1%.  Officials insisted there was no threat to the public, that the sample had probably been destroyed by accident, and the lab’s cleaning crew is currently under investigation. Blaming the janitors!? I feel reassured, don’t you?
