Be sure to check out the Star Wars Linkzookery at the bottom.
UK anti-war duo acquitted of sabotaging US bombers
The pair argued that they were acting to prevent war crimes in Iraq.
F-18E Shows Its Age Earlier Than Expected
Like most of the inventory, the wear and tear is adding up. Unfortunately, the Super Hornets are among the newest planes in the air for us.
House Moves to Cut Off Spare Parts for Iran’s Air Force
Only about 28 years late. (And no, I see no irony whatsoever in a link about Iranian F-14s following a link about F-18s wearing out earlier than expected…)
Hidden costs of corn-based ethanol
I remain concerned that ethanol might not be the best route to take, but I’m certainly willing to give it a shot. Alternatives to corn-based ethanol look a lot better to me.
Post and interesting comments from R. Neal.
The Air Car
Makes 65.9 MPG look pretty crappy. Plus you can run your A/C all day long.
Much, much more Linkzookery, including Star Wars links, below >>>
A Wildcatter Pounces
US domestic oil industry making a comeback?
Lebanese Army: Not Outgunned
As unlikely as it sounds, the NYT might have something wrong.
Swarms of cicadas emerging in Midwest
Yep. Can’t wait. Looking forward to it.
11th Armored Cavalry Regiment Guidon Passing
From 2004: Vietnam Blackhorse vets passing down a guidon for today’s Blackhorse Regiment to take to Iraq. (Found this while looking for info on cavalry guidons. I want a guidon for my son’s Boy Scout troop, but they’re not authorized. I suspect that somehow the troop is going to end up with one anyway…)
ROVs help police with Port Security
Port security? You mean we have port security?
Free Trade: Under Siege
The US-China Trade War No One Expects: An across-the-board tariff of 20 percent on Chinese goods?
Woman acquitted of illegal poop use
Dem activist who left some front-porch dissent remains unstifled.
Coming Soon: Pepsi Ice Cucumber
From the comment: “Haven’t bought anything from Pepsi in years, but that looks bad enough to try.”
Star Wars: 30 Years
Make-It-Yourself ‘Star Wars’
There is no chance that Murdoc will make any Star Wars clips. None whatsoever. Nada.
Now THAT’S a Star Wars cake
I had an AT-AT birthday cake for my birthday, once.

Then and now pics of cast members.
Lucas hints at new Star Wars film
Honestly, I’m not sure if the world could take another Star Wars film. Wouldn’t mind seeing that TV series, though.
It’s Official – No More Star Wars Movies
Whew! Though now that Lucas is apparently denying there will be any more films, I’m more inclined to think there will be. He’s basically been completely untrustworthy when talking about the films.
How Star Wars shook the world
He’s wrong, though, about the opening crawl including “Episode IV: A New Hope” when the film premiered. That was added in 1981.
Star Wars 3 and Unfulfilled Expectations
Why I don’t think the new movies are as bad as everyone (including me) says they are.
Star Wars Stamps
A cool $0.41 each…
