random links for the evening

- Japanese team finds 'yeti footprints' in Nepal. There are pictures, but they're mostly of the climbers. Forget the footprints, where's the yeti scat?

- Foreign Affairs, "America's most influential publication on international affairs and foreign policy" (their description) (via lilithsaintcrow). As Lili says, watch for the hidden agenda, but it does look chock full of things I normally don't hear about in US news.

- The hypocrisy of the 'One-Party Rule' Gambit (at, via jaylake). The Republicans are now warning of the danger of a potential "one-party rule" if the Democrats win the Presidency and control of both houses of Congress. No really, they are. And, of course, the Republicans were for it before they were against it.

- A Better Network for Outer Space (MIT Technology Review, via jaylake). Vint Cerf, one of the designers of the core Internet protocols, talks about communications protocols for use in outer space. I've been hearing about the Interplanetary Internet for a while, and this looks to be a nicely informative overview article.

- The Republican shipwreck (at Gary Kamiya talks about the state of the Republican party and how it got here. A very interesting point is his comparison of the "mythical Reagan" to the "real Reagan" and how desire to emulate the "mythical Reagan" is part of what created so much trouble for the GOP and the USA.
