From the AP:

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (AP) — Democrat Barack Obama said Tuesday he was outraged and appalled by the latest comments from his former pastor, who asserted that criticism of his fiery sermons is an attack on the black church and the U.S. government was responsible for the creation of the AIDS virus.

Out for a while -- post your own conspiracy theories.

It's fashionable to bash the theory of "peak oil," the idea that world oil demand has already passed or is about to pass world supplies. But doesn't peak oil look something like this?

A central reason that oil supplies are not rising much is that major producers outside the OPEC cartel, like Russia, Mexico and Norway, are showing troubling signs of sluggishness. Unlike OPEC, whose explicit goal is to regulate the supply of oil to keep prices up, these countries are the free traders of the oil market, with every incentive to produce flat-out at a time of high prices.

Been slow around here today. Memo to self: Write more about racy pictures of Miley Cyrus.

There's an old classic rock chestnut by the group Free that's been going through my head this morning, although the spelling's a bit off:

"All Wright now....baby, it's alllll Wright now..."
