Submission Right to Sue Pharmaceuticals Challenged 2

nathan.fulton writes: "The Wall Street Journal reports that the Supreme Court case Wyeth v. Levine may revoke the right to sue pharmaceutical companies. In an irregular move, the FDA has sided with the pharmaceutical company. Concerned consumer rights activists point out that suing "is the only deterrent to corporate misbehavior." NPR Reports that this is part of a larger push by the Bush administration to decrease industry accountability."
It's funny.  Laugh.

Submission Hacker Site Hosted on Obama's Subdomain->

nathan.fulton writes: "For those of you unfamiliar with H.O.P.E (Hackers on Planet Earth,) it is a bi-annual conference of hackers hosted by 2600 magazine. The conference's domain name (http://www.hope.net) now displays Barak Obama's home page when accessed. The conference, which is now in its last year, seems to have sold the domain name to the Obama campaign. Interestingly enough, the subdomain for the H.O.P.E forum (talk.hope.net) still displays the conference's forum, which is used to plan talks and share information (pictures, keynotes, ideas, etc.) on earlier conferences. How long will it take Republicans to realize that "Obama supports hackers?""
