Combing the Net – 6/5/2011

Cops Called on Cicadas — In local news, someone called the Putnam County Sheriff’s Department to report a noise disturbance. In their defense, cicadas are really annoying…

Breakfast Cereals Declining in Popularity — Given my son’s addiction to Cheerios, I thought it especially interesting that the decline in interest in that particular cereal is attributed to declining birth rates.

If Books Sales Were Votes — Ron Paul’s book Liberty Defined (which I recently reviewed) is outselling books by other Republican presidential contenders Sarah Palin, Mitt Romney, Newt Gingrich, Herman Cain, and Tim Pawlenty… and it isn’t even close.

She’s 10 and May Be Sold to a Brothel — Sad story of a promising young Indian girl whose grandfather may soon sell her into slavery at the hands of a sex trafficker. If so, she would become one of an estimated 1.8 million children who will enter the commercial sex trade this year.

Incredible Story of Heroism — This Nepalese soldier serving in the British army single-handedly fought off 30 Taliban fighters. Whoa!
