It is being reported that a complaint has been leveled against an outgoing Homeland Security official, one Sean Smith. However, a careful examination of the incident, coupled with the application of modern societal logic, reveals that this complaint is seriously misdirected.

In honor of this year’s Earth Day foolishness, Reason.tv has put together a list of the top 5 environmental disasters that didn’t happen. I was extremely disappointed to see that the hoax of anthropogenic global warming didn’t make the list. But then I realized that they keep moving the date of global apocalypse from AGW back, keeping it decades if not hundreds of years out, so that we cannot truly say it “hasn’t happened” since the deadline for our doom always remains safely in our future.
