The Bill of Rights, the failed farm bill, and The Happening

* Riots spread in Brazil.
* This rant about the Republicans' failed farm bill is a gift that keeps on giving. Great read.
* Catching up with the Supreme Court news that didn't make the headlines.
* Four facts you missed about the IRS non-scandal. Bonus: the conspiracy theorists get in on the action.
* The untold history of the Bill of Rights.
* Why Orwell is rolling over in his grave.
* I don't entirely agree with it, but this defense of M Night Shyamalan's The Happening is sort of inspired.
