Arizona Governor Proposes Flab Tax
The point is that you can still buy your 6 dollar all natural, organic, gluten-free cookie, but it is going to cost you 6.50 because sugar is sugar, whether it comes from slave labor or corn fields.

Hawking Picks Physics Over God For Big Bang
Yeah but he will be dead some day, and 100 - 100 million years from now (whatever the time frame may be) when they prove that something can come from nothing, he will be the guy that said it first with conviction.
At least that's how it will likely be remembered, when we are all dead and scientific history gets trimmed and reorganized into a more manageable memory.
