Remember the good old days of 2009 when you could just mint your own money? Ever since the FBI busted Bernard von Nothaus's "Liberty Dollar" operation we had to say good-bye to our Ron Paul coins and settle for boring old legal tender. Luckily, a small Italian town is picking up right where Nothaus left off.Mayor Luca Sellari of Filettino, Italy recently opened his own independent mint. read more

Last night Melissa shared a somewhat depressing chart showing the United States' global rank in terms of quality of overall infrastructure. The chart is from page 52 of this report (pdf), but the source is this World Economic Forum report (pdf). Visually it's distressing enough, but if you're the type of person to be proud of your country, infrastructure is the sort of thing you'd take pride in. read more

Professionally I feel somewhat obligated to follow Batwoman as well. (Remember Rachel wrote the intro to that book?)What about Swamp Thing? I thought everyone loved that book? And not Dark Knight? Just regular Batman? I suspect I'll still end up standing in the comic book store thumbing through new releases. read more
