Good luck getting to the bottom of it but as far as theories go i gotta say that is a bit hard to take. Most of the groups you describe, (except PETA, also as aside, fuck PETA), have enough money to start a strongly worded letter writing campaign and not much more. The Soros and Koch types don't really seem to be doing much that isn't also benefiting themselves. I mean what you are describing isn't Sheldon Adelson levels of funding here but stills sounds like more than seems likely for a group that is willing to not get credit or the limelight.

Not saying I don't believe you but i'm not seeing what the upside would be for whatever group doing this. If as you say it was 'liberals white guys' you'd think that they would be all out there making sure they get the public adulation so they can feel all warm and fuzzy on the inside. Or I suppose it could be someone is out to try and destroy the team for rivalry reasons except the owner Dan Snyder is doing a pretty good job of destroying the team all by his lonesome.

+ - Object seen in skydiver's helmetcam unlikely to be a meteorite 3

The Bad Astronomer (563217) writes "The viral video showing what looked like a meteorite falling past a skydiver made quite a splash, with many people assuming it was true. However, further analysis shows that it's also perfectly consistent with being a small (1-3 cm) rock that fell out of the parachute itself, which is a far more likely explanation."

Sort of. The DC metro only shuts down above ground stations due to weather and usually it has to be more than a half a foot. The whole system shutdowns periodically due to a variety of other factors because it is in fact run by bozos. The roads shutdown because people here are bad drivers and have zero ability to deal with snow despite it being a roughly annual occurrence. The whole fucking city shuts down because congress doesn't like to do work and act like if you gave 5th graders the power to decide when the school gets to take snow days.
