According to a 2012 report by the Human Rights and Criminal Sentencing Reform Project for the University of San Francisco School of Law, the United States is one of only 22 countries that doesn’t guarantee what’s called “retroactive ameliorative relief” in sentencing. Which means that when a law such as one legalizing marijuana is passed in America, those already convicted of marijuana crimes don’t automatically have their sentences relaxed. This puts us in the company of such bastions of social justice as Pakistan, Oman and South Sudan.

New Fukushima Radiation Study Will Focus on West Coast Kelp Forests
Researchers are launching a new project to monitor California’s kelp forests for radiation from the Fukushima nuclear power plant in Japan. Scientists will fan out along the California coast to collect kelp and find out if it has absorbed any radiation from the 2011 meltdown.

The change is long overdue. No European capital has been quite so ruined by motor vehicles as Brussels, which even last year was scorned by the French as a “sewer for cars.” And the new plan is going over well with locals, meaning Brussels might finally gain its deserved place as a likeable European city.

Always nice to see politicians considering well-being as much as wealth. Even better when the public supports them.

WWII Disney propaganda video from 1943. I can’t imagine living at that time.

Propaganda is a hell of a thing. Propaganda about propaganda is another.

Shit, you could just record your last album backwards, slap a grainy photo of a pine tree on it, and release it as new material. No one would even notice and you’ll probably get the cover of Rolling Stone and an endorsement deal from Starbucks.

So. Damn. Funny. Every. Word.
