Let's get to the news.
-- [Chuck] We've been hearing a lot about Aaron Swartz lately, and for good reason. Here is an exclusive interview with his girlfriend, who found him after his death, and why she believes the courts are responsible.
-- [Chuck] It has been long since known (especially by conspiracy theorists) that the government has been trying to manipulate weather patterns in the US. Now we have constant superstorms, massive tsunamis and earthquakes, and other changes. This petition demands that the government immediately stop all experimentation with weather modification.
-- Occupiers in Edinburgh are dealing with multiple challenges to their encampment, including below freezing temperatures and a city council attempting to toss them out. The Occupiers have said they may leave their occupation spot early, but that they will be seen elsewhere.
-- [Chuck] The Palestinian people are not giving up yet, even after their camp was destroyed by Israeli officials. Instead they have created another camp, this one called the Gate of Dignity. They are already looking to build permanent structures on the spot, but it is only a matter of time before the Israeli government steps in.
-- Lastly, this Monday is Martin Luther King Jr. Day, and everyone should stop to remember this man. However, it seems that some people are getting pretty worked up over a new sort of idea: that MLK was a conservative. Do you think King was a conservative? Head over to this article on CNN for an interesting read and arguments for both sides.
