Every other day, I've get a piece of email from Stratfor, who describes themselves as "one of the world's leading private providers of global intelligence." In this email, I receive tantalizing headlines, but links that are inaccessible (to actually read the stories, I would need $60.). Of course, they send you one free link as a tease, but it's not something that any smuck with several hours of free time couldn't find by surfing Google News. No, the interesting stuff is lock away. So typically, I just trash the emails without looking at them.

Today, even though I'm preoccupied with the 'Tarot Card Murder', I decided to see if I can discover more about what's going on in our world. Here is news that's fit to print on Stratfor. Let's see if I find this info without having to send $60 and my class records.
