NaturalBlog News Update: Nuggets edition

Here are some fuunny things found after the jump, which is newspaper speak for after a story goes from the front page of a section to the inside.

I. Lewis Libby, one of us. Lewis "Scooter" Libby, former adviser to the most powerful vice president in the history of the universe, is also a big Star Trek fan. A Yale classmate tells The New York Times that Libby could "remember not only all 79 ‘Star Trek’ episodes, as I could, but he knew all the titles, too." A kid nicknamed Scooter is a big Trekkie? I'm shocked. Shocked.

America's next top weapon: Real Ultimate Power. Raytheon, worried that retiring baby boomers will sap the country of its talent base, has begun reaching out to demographics not usually associated with the defense industry, including minorities and homosexuals. And how is Raytheon doing this? The Boston Globe says it's using "a corps of 'ninjas' and 'game-changers' to foster a culture of inclusion." Might I suggest actually putting the ninjas into battle.

And finally. Derek Jeter's sometime girlfriend Jessica Biel has a dog, and apparently the dog hates the star shortstop. It's true, I read it in a gossip magazine.

I'm going to be pi**ed if I go to Raytheon and there aren't any real ninjas there.

And for anyone interested in the fiction works of I., Lewis Libby, click on the link below. Let's just say I'd never want to go to the zoo with this guy:

I don't think there's real ninjas; it's some sort of metaphorical ninja. They don't go into a lot of detail about it in the article, which is too bad.
