In the photo above, Korean War veteran Gabe Spataro dives to see the famous “Christ of the Deep” statue in the waters near Key Largo, Florida. Spataro, 80, helped to bring the statue from Italy, near Genoa, to its current resting place. Read the whole story at Fox News and the Miami Herald.

    What a nice story to start the week! Thanks for posting.

  2. Great Father’s Day gift: AK-47 Vodka.

    Got the link from iotw, but when I read the listing the thing that made me laugh out loud was the line “Quantity in Stock.” Heh. Ok, what about the quantity in the magazine? Or the quantity in the barrel or the action? I know I’m a geek. Don’t rub it in…

  3. Solar Rain. Amazing video from the Solar Dynamics Observatory. Hat tip: Claudia at iotw.

    Any of you smart folks know much about this?

  5. Good discussion about why this current NSA scandal is different (and worse) than the same objections raised during the Bush years.

  6. Retired Legendary Columbia Professor Henry Graff: โ€œI taught at Columbia for 46 years. I taught every significant American politician that ever studied at Columbia. I know them all. Iโ€™m proud of them all. Between American History and Diplomatic History, one way or another, they all had to come through my classes. Not Obama. I never had a student with that name in any of my classes. I never met him, never saw him, never heard of him… None of the other Columbia professors knew him either.โ€
    “Iโ€™m very upset by the whole story. I am angry when I hear Obama called โ€˜the first President of the United States from Columbia University.โ€™ I donโ€™t consider him a Columbia student. I have no idea what he did on the Columbia campus. No one knows him.”
