Everybody who wants a mammoth

just got a boost:
Russian scientists discovered a fully-grown female mammoth with blood and well-preserved muscle tissue trapped in ice in Siberia. The findings come amid debates on whether the extinct species should be resurrected using DNA.
Unlike, say, a velociraptor or something, cloning a mammoth would leave you with something like an elephant, which we do have experience dealing with.  So there's one more problem down.

As it should be: no special rights because you have a government job.
In Texas, the House defeated a measure on Sunday that would have given prosecuting attorneys and lawmakers permission to carry gunsanywhere they wanted to in the state. Just 38 lawmakers voted for it, while 103 voted against.

More destruction of history by Religion of Peace proponents in the mid-east.

More misconduct by the prosecutors in the Zimmerman case; so when does the bar association start disbarring these clowns, and will they be charged for their various crimes?

Ok, so exactly what the hell happened, then?
A Chechen man who was fatally shot by an FBI agent last week during an interview about one of the Boston bombing suspects was unarmed, law enforcement officials said Wednesday.

An air of mystery has surrounded the FBI shooting of Ibragim Todashev, 27, since it occurred in Todashev’s apartment early on the morning of May 22. The FBI said in a news release that day that Todashev, a former Boston resident who knew bombing suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev, was killed during an interview with several law enforcement officers.
