A bipartisan statement from the Senate Intelligence Committee including Diane Feinstein, D-CA, Mike Rogers, R-MI, C.A. Ruppersberger, D-MA, and Saxby Chambliss R-GA expresses concern over what seem to be systematic leaks: “In recent weeks, we have become increasingly concerned at the continued leaks regarding sensitive intelligence programs and activities, including specific details of sources and methods. . . . The accelerating pace of such disclosures, the sensitivity of the matters in question, and the harm caused to our national security interests is alarming and unacceptable.”

Senator John McCain R-AZ has gone a step further, claiming the Obama administration has intentionally leaked the classified information, saying it has come from the ‘highest levels’ of the White House, as a way to bolster his image on foreign policy and against terror.

An FBI investigation on the leaks is now underway.

The UK NHS may soon be testing for over 3,500 genetic faults in unborn babies, which would likely lead to additional abortions, much like the highly unreliable down syndrome test has. Are such tests moral?

Finally, a highway in Texas may soon have an 85 mile per hour speed limit. Would you drive on this road?

    I wish Nevada would go back to not having a speed limit at all.
