Rendering of Kosmoceratops
  • Refreshingly decent piece over at The Next Web Media about the predicaments of PZ Myers and Christopher Hitchens, and how atheists respond to death and others’ reactions to their own mortality.
    (h/t to Simon Owens)

  • Some good news: Miami court of appeals rules the Florida ban on LGBT adoption is unconstitutional.
    (via @BreakingNews)

  • Two new dinosaur species discovered in southern Utah: Kosmoceratops [pictured] and Utahceratops (aka Ugly Spikyhead and Ugly Hornface).

  • Jon Stewart rebukes Bill O’Reilly’s claims that President Obama doesn’t understand “the folks”: “You’re just making things up.”

  • More Fox “News”: Megyn Kelly of America Live derides former President Carter for (brilliantly) criticizing Fox News on The Daily Show, claims Stephen Colbert’s self-paid in-character speech to Congress is a “waste of taxpayer dollars”, keeps pushing that bullshit “New Black Panther Party scandal”, and snidely remarks on how a cop who presumably attacked a 15-year-old boy for having sex with the cop’s 14-year-old daughter (no further details provided) is now facing possible criminal charges – as though what the cop did was supposedly a good thing in proportion to the alleged “offense”.
