Two French civilians say a prayer as they lay flowers on a fallen American soldier near the city of Cerentan in 1944 France. This picture says a lot about the respect and appreciation the allies had for each other, something the axis lacked.
Next month NASA’s New Horizons probe will wake up from it’s final hibernation in order to begun preparation for it’s arrival in the dwarf planet’s vicinity.

Lately there has been a bunch of accusations directed toward comedian Bill Cosby, but I’ve seen very little evidence – actually no evidence to support these accusations. A little bit of research seems to put these accusations in the same league as similar accusations against the Duke Lacrosse players a few years ago. Unfortunately it doesn’t seem that most learned anything from that whole ordeal. Cosby has been treated as a criminal, NBC and Netflix both dropped plans for a new Cosby projects, despite the fact that prosecutors investigated the accusations and didn’t find evidence to support charges.

A Libertarian Case for Net Neutrality
As a libertarian you may be uneasy with the concept of net neutrality. Like me, you feel inexplicably drawn to this neutrality but feel guilty for it. You think to yourself, “I’m a free-market libertarian, by God! Regulation is wrong! Why is my instinct betraying me?” It’s because we don’t live in perfect world. We live in an economy that is far from free and is infested with government regulations and corporate manipulation. The internet service industry is a picturesque example of this.
