This headline startled me quite a bit.

Eating Their Own: Conservative Editor Calls For Ouster Of Grover Norquist From Conservative Movement

The article told me some things I didn't know about Norquist. Apparently, "Norquist supports GOProud, a gay conservative group, and helped found the Islamic Free Market Institute. As a result of these connections, Norquist is being labeled as “pro-perversion” and “pro-Islamist".

Perhaps Norquist isn't quite the puppet-master I thought. How in the world does this party expect to win the hearts of the American populace? No question that the 33 percenters will cheer loudly for whicheever candidate they mange to settle on, but is there any chance that the rest of the country is going to stay home on election day? I don't think so.

Nuclear Plant Has Been Leaking For Four Years

According to the US Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Entergy Corp has allowed highly radioactive waste to leak into a contained area at the FitzPatrick nuclear power plant for the last four years.

The FitzPatrick plant is near Oswego, New York, but the NRC has said that the leak "poses no immediate risks to any residents or the environment."
