There are five named storms in the Atlantic right now. Paulette, Rene, Sally, Teddy, and Vicky.

No doubt warmer waters contributed to this. Please, for the love of God, people, stop peeing in the ocean.

The gloves were off on Tuesday as the US Government explicitly argued that all journalists are liable to prosecution under the Espionage Act (1917) for publishing classified information, citing the Rosen case. Counsel for the US government also argued that the famous Pentagon Papers supreme court judgement on the New York Times only referred to pre-publication injunction and specifically did not preclude prosecution under the Espionage Act. The US Government even surmised in court that such an Espionage Act prosecution of the New York Times may have been successful.

Fortunately, it looks like enough Republicans in the Senate are willing to postpone filling the position until after the election. On the other hand, that could help rally the Republican base for the election.

Could not find one from the Galapagos, but there there were lava rivers. Also very beautiful to watch (from afar, very very afar)

Here is a bit of that:


We all know what this means! The PYRA is near!
