Bristol Palin On Keith Olbermann

Bristol Palin isn’t happy about being one of Olbermann’s “Worst Person In The World” targets for preaching abstinence while being a teen mother. Accusing me of hypocrisy is by now, an old canard.

Droning New York City

“FP/V” refers to the hobby of flying first-person/video cameras attached to tiny remote-controlled planes. Or as the U.S. military calls them, “drones.” Judging by the comments on this YouTube clip, some FP/V hobbyists aren’t too happy about the guy who flew his drone around Manhattan because now the FAA is going to “crack down” on them. Cool clip, in any …
