Video: A brief moment of Hurricane Irene

08/25/11 02:04PM

 Fred Weinberg sends this video of Hurricane Irene -- the outer bands, anyway -- moving through Palm Beach, Florida, this morning. "Interestingly, birds are still chirping away...reminds one to sing in the face of adversity."Two things: If you're in the way of this storm, please be reasonable and do what the emergency folks ask. And second, the few hurricanes I've lived through directly all started with the sudden quieting of the birds. It's so quiet beforehand, and then the storm roars, and afterward you open the door to absolute silence.(If you've got stuff to send...) read more

Gadhafi, is that with a Q or  a K?

Gadhafi, is that with a Q or a K?

08/25/11 02:41AM

As Rachel described tonight, a lot has gone into try to translate Moammar Gadhafi's name from its native spelling to Latin/English letters. The Atlantic has some of those details and makes the best case so far that the spelling should be "Gathafi" based on a glimpse of a passport in a video. This video.I was curious if I could catch the same glimpe. Here's my grab of :15 in the video, with contrast boosted and some of the color saturation removed:I think I'd actually prefer the mystery not be solved because the Wikipedia diagram of the possible spellings is such a thing of beauty:  read more

Crowley Libya interview from last night's show.It turns out, succedaneum is on a list of words in danger of going extinct. read more
