Here are some other highlights and headlines that I noticed over at Ransom Notes Radio:

Two thoughts on the whole IRS “losing Lois Lerner’s emails” story: 1) What, exactly, would happen to me if I told the IRS that I just “lost” some important tax documentation? And 2) Can’t the NSA just give Congress their copy? (The Fox Nation)

Now the Government is considering possible restrictions on navigation apps for your smart phone because they think it could contribute to distracted driving… Personally, I think that if you want to reduce distracted driving, we should ban fast food, smoking, listening to the radio, and children from the car as well. (NY Times)

During a commencement address, the President compared people who are skeptical of global warming to people who believe the moon is made of cheese. Of course, this is ridiculous. Nobody believes the moon is made of cheese. If it was, the FDA would probably be regulating it. (Bloomberg)

American contractors and diplomats are trapped in Iraq. But that’s ok… The President is “on top of the situation”. The situation, of course, appears to be at the golf course. (Western Free Press)

Wait, does anyone remember that there’s a little dust-up going on in the Ukraine? The Soviets Russians have cut off gas supplies to Ukraine. This seems like a messy and bloody way to reduce Eastern Europe’s carbon emissions. (Washington Times)

America is preparing to open negotiations with Iran over the instability in Iraq. Because, ya know, Iran has such a strong reputation of bringing peace and prosperity to the region. (Solicitations for a sarcasm font are still active.) (Fox News)
