Trekkies engage (and rage) is a short piece from Regret the error, a web site that reports on corrections published in the media. I think they post a few too many times per day, but every now and then there are some great posts. Remember: never piss of the Star Trek fans.

Scalia Subjected to Probing Question, the Aftermath publishes a letter from Eric Berndt, a student at the NYU School of Law. Berndt asked Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, “Do you sodomize your wife?” Before you judge him too quickly, read his letter over. It is an eloquent defense of gay rights and free speech. The letter also puts his question into context, and I think it is necessary reading for anyone who thinks that gays are not discriminated against in our country. The letter was published by Wonkette, a news site with a funny, salacious editor.

I am now lusting after the Canon PowerShot SD500, a seven megapixel ultra-compact camera from Canon. There are only a couple of minor problems with this camera, but I love how tiny it is. I saw one at the Final Four, and it looks even better in real life than it does on the web site. This isn’t to say that I have lost my love for the Canon EOS 20D or the Canon EOS-1D Mark II, but they are entirely different cameras. These cameras, and many more, are reviewed at Digital Photography Review, one of the most comprehensive websites covering digital photography.
