Hump Day Mish-Mash...

Wholesale prices increased in February at their fastest rate in over a year and a half, while housing starts dropped to their lowest level in 27 years. More info here.

The markets are down for the third straight day after the Japanese earthquake and tsunami. At this moment, and Dow and S&P are off 6% and the Nasdaq is off 7.5% from their recent highs.

How about some electronic pickpocketing.

"If I'm walking through a crowd, I get near people's back pocket and their wallet, I just need to be this close to it and there's my credit card and expiration date on the screen," says Augustinowicz demonstrating how easily cards containing RFID can be hacked.
How about WMDs found... IN THE USA!

Or federal agents being told to allow weapons into Mexico, and then being used against Americans.

The problems with government (and cooky environmental) regulations causing plumbing problems.

Light bulb issues, too. Rand Paul asks an interesting question.

Sometimes Moore is less (heh!).

Mr. Obama has told people that it would be so much easier to be the president of China. As one official put it, “No one is scrutinizing Hu Jintao’s words in Tahrir Square.”
