U.S. releases graphic tobacco warning labels
Proposed in November under a law that put the multibillion-dollar tobacco industry under the control of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, the new labels must be on cigarette packages and in advertisements no later than September 2012. They represent the first change in cigarette warnings in 25 years.

Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius and FDA Commissioner Margaret Hamburg were to discuss the nine new warnings blah-blah blah,

Playing the role of "Bitch of Buchenwald;" Kathleen Sebelius

Giving the FDA dominion over the tobacco industry had been thought constitutionally questionable (at best) since David Kessler tried to grab it during the Clinton Horror.  Obamunists just went ahead and did it, effectively nationalizing yet another business.  Now government nannies get to spend monopoly money designing new useless warnings  that they can then force  ... Aw to hell with them!    Click-Click!   

Melson Takes The Fall for Holder, Obama

Fast & Furious — Melson under the bus to save Holder and Obama.

Kenneth Melson, acting director of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, is expected to resign under pressure, perhaps in the next day or two, in the wake of the controversy over Operation Fast and Furious, two senior federal law enforcement sources said Monday.

In the operation, straw buyers were allowed to purchase illegally large numbers of weapons, some of which ended up in the hands of cartels in Mexico.

Melson is the fall-guy for Fast and Furious

Jon Stewart - A Fine Whine

What's this?  Another post-interview whine - claiming Jon Stewart edited a Daily Show interview to make the conservative guest look stupid?

Little footnote denotes big change at SCOTUS

Little footnote denotes big change at SCOTUS
I can only assume this story has been spiked.
That, or the press collectively fail to understand its significance.

Lonely Boy Algore
In 2007 the Court, with full global warming religious fervor, held:

    The harms associated with climate change are serious and well recognized. The Government’s own objective assessment of the relevant science and a strong consensus among qualified experts indicate that global warming threatens, inter alia, a precipitate rise in sea levels, severe and irreversible changes to natural ecosystems, a significant reduction in winter snowpack with direct and important economic consequences, and increases in the spread of disease and the ferocity of weather events.

Now the Court has radically changed direction:

    … The Court, we caution, endorses no particular view of the complicated issues related to carbon dioxide emissions and climate change.

I’ll take that as a huge win for science, common sense and society generally, including its essential support structure of industry and abundant, affordable energy supply.

I just wonder why the media aren’t reporting SCOTUS’s apparent conversion from global warming religion to, at most, global warming agnosticism.
