Plus the undeniable grossness of manna, and more

Print Email
This is manna. It comes from bugs.(NYT)

• The U.N. Security Council passed new sanctions. They are great at demonstrating U.S. power, but will be less successful at actually hindering Iran’s nuclear program. [Reuters]

• Press critic Jack Shafer indicts Peter Beinart for using fuzzy numbers; he relies in part on Tablet Magazine’s dissection of the relevant poll data. [Slate]

• Former Florida attorney Scott Rothstein was sentenced to 50 years in prison for the $1.2 billion Ponzi scheme he allegedly ran. [AP/Vos Iz Neias?]

Tuchus? Tuchis? Tushie? Tush? Contributing editor Jeffrey Goldberg gets to the … bottom of it. [Jeffrey Goldberg]

• Um … someone has come up with a flotilla computer game. It is pretty offensive, if you ask me, and it objectively misrepresents what happened. [Flotilla Raid]

• Manna is real! And seemingly materializes out of nowhere! And it is tasty! And it is made by … bugs? What a bugskill. [NYT]

When God gave us manna in the wilderness: That was a miracle.
