+ - Snake with a foot->

Submitted by tiedyejeremy
tiedyejeremy (559815) writes "The Telegraph is reporting an enigmatic creature from China, a snake that has a foot. Their report is brief and the picture isn't the best ever taken, but this should still give the anti-creationists plenty of ammunition in their march to give the theory of evolution some real legs to stand on."

+ - Oregon Governor Proposing Vehicle Mileage Tax

Submitted by
tiedyejeremy
tiedyejeremy writes "As covered by the Crosscut Blog, the Governor of Oregon, Ted Kulongoski, is proposing a change in the funding of the Oregonian transportation system that drops gasoline taxes and, by way of GPS tracking, taxes the number of miles driven, to the tune of 1.2 cents per mile.. The reason for the proposed change is lower fuel consumption via fuel efficiency will leave the system underfunded. The concerns involve government tracking of the movements of vehicles within the state, though this has been denied by ODOT official, James Whitty. I'm wondering how this affects people using the Interstate System and private roads, and if the outputs can or will be used by law enforcement to check alibis."
