Florida acts to eliminate touch screen voting (NYTimes)
San Joaquin Valley air officials have revoked a permit allowing the federal government to test its nuclear weapons arsenal near Tracy after learning the bombs would have radioactive material. The San Joaquin Air Pollution Control District initially granted a permit to the Lawrence Livermore Laboratory to test the bombs on an open field owned by the lab off Interstate 580. But air officials changed course when they learned that the tests would involve depleted uranium. Officials say the lab never told them about the radioactivity and only found out after local residents who brought it to their attention.
