* Happy 90th to Isaac Asimov. One of the greats.

* Multimillionaire visits hospital, declares American health system works just great.

* ‘How to Train the Aging Brain.’

* The world will not end in 2012. 2011.

* Notice again how far down the slippery slope we have gone. Krauthammer’s first position was that torture should be restricted solely to ticking time bomb cases in which we knew that a terror suspect could prevent an imminent detonation of a WMD. His position a few years later is that torture should be the first resort for any terror suspect who could tell us anything about future plots. Those of us who warned that torture, once admitted into the mainstream, will metastasize beyond anyone’s control now have the example of Charles Krauthammer’s arguments to back us up. More here.

* Get your sneak peak of 2020 here and here. Via i09.
