A letter from U.S. Attorney John E. Murphy threatening to halt all flights to and from the State of Texas has spurred a Texas legislator to pull his bill that would have prevented the Transportation Security Administration from carrying out its gropefest/pornshow activities in that State.

After all the heat and hyperbole of the past few weeks, let’s take a break today. Instead of politics, let’s argue about something that’s really important: how to make the world’s best hamburger. A former classmate of mine spent a fortune trying to determine the answer. With the official start of summer this weekend, let’s see if what he learned can help you be a backyard hero.

Nobel laureate scientist Sir Paul Nurse believes Freedom of information laws are being used to harass scientists. “I have been told of some researchers who are getting lots of requests for, among other things, all drafts of scientific papers prior to their publication in journals, with annotations, explaining why changes were made between successive versions,” Nurse told guardian.co.uk. “If it is true, it will consume a huge amount of time. And it’s intimidating.”

All right, kiddies, it’s that time again. Every now and then, Bob Livingston allows me to prod your cerebra with the proverbial sharp object.

The various departments — like Energy, Education, the Environmental Protection Agency, Transportation, Homeland Security, Internal Revenue Service, et al — are unConstitutional and make their own rules and regulations outside of Congress. And when they decide to use those rules to crack down on Americans, they do so with the bedside manner of a viper.

Despite proclamations of victory by the Administration of President Barack Obama, the death of Osama bin Laden is not like the fall of Berlin in 1945. In itself, killing bin Laden brings no peace.
