Sunday morning roundup

Of course it had to end this way. Back in November, Anders Behring Breivik, accused of killing 77 people in Norway last summer (most of whom were children) was examined by a psychiatrist and found to be insane. The forensic psychiatrists who conducted the evaluation found that Mr. Breivik was a paranoid schizophrenic.

But that would mean that the state couldn't put Mr. Breivik on trial for the murders - and we mustn't deprive the state of its power to infringe upon the liberty of any individual. So, miraculously enough, a second examination found that Mr. Breivik wasn't insane at the time of the alleged crimes. Interesting how that worked out, wouldn't you say?

Oh the messiness that is Chinese politics. Just a few months ago "experts" in Chinese politics touted Bo Xilai, the party boss in Chongqing as a rising star. Then, just as suddenly, Bo was dismissed as party secretary and now his wife, Gu Kailai, has been accused of murdering a British businessman found dead in his hotel room last November. Makes our method of picking candidates seem reasonable in comparison.

Apparently times are tough for GOP Presidential hopefuls as the Newt bounced a check in Utah.

Finally, at Wal-Mart you can save money and live better thanks to a one-pot "shake and bake" meth lab in the restroom of a Wal-Mart in Boaz, Alabama.
