* "[Anthropologist Paula Holmes-Eber] teaches operational culture at Marine Corps University in Quantico, Va. It's her job to get soldiers to think through how every move they make on the battlefield has a consequence — not just for enemy forces, but for ordinary people."
* The recession's impact on plastic surgery.
* Interesting read: what America does and doesn't get right.
* 'Ghost galaxies' could exist close to the Milky Way.
* On NBC's string of bad decisions. And the LATimes brings the story back to Jeff Zucker. (Good read.)
* Gumby creator Art Clokey passed away.
