* George F. Will on the separation of the executive and the legislative.

Anonymous donor gives $5M to Fermilab

With the money, lab officials will be able to stop a rolling furlough program that since February has forced employees to take periodic unpaid leave and slashed their pay by 12.5%.

The blogging article was really well written. "Language of addiction."
