al-Shabab took control of the southern town of Afmadow over the weekend. Two French aid workers with Triangle have been kidnapped in the Central African Republic. Owen Barder has a post on the Great Ethiopian Run of 2009. Fourteen Americans have been charged with involvement in al-Shabab in Somalia. We now have great data on voter turnout in 2008. Yale-Harvard was a travesty this year. That's all I have to say about that. Not telling kids "no" is a parenting trend? Seriously?!? If the statement, "A linux cluster is safe in entropy-reducing decision boundaries, but that's not what linux clusters are for" is funny to you, then you should be following @FakeGaryKing on Twitter (HT to the real Gary King and Chris Albon).
