Quick Links

Today's quick links is going to be politics free in keeping with my promise to have a politics free weekend.

With that promise in mind, this is a fascinating look at the hunt for Bin Laden done by Newsweek. Note: there are some elements of politics in this story, but it is primarily a news story.

Honda has a case of Prius envy. Read on to see what they are doing about it.

About 10 years ago, Latrell Sprewell choked his coach PJ Carlissimo. While for several years it seemed that Carlissimo's reputation was hurt more than Sprewell's. 10 years later it seems like the tide has turned. SI has an article discussing the changes in fortune.

pro Football Talk has a feature called Turd Watch. It lists out the NFL's police blotter. It includes an entry that says Michael Vick was charged with tresspassing in Feb 2007. Sounds like the least of his worries. So much for being a first time offender.

When we put our house on the market in May (we had already moved) we were prepared for te worst. We sold it within one day and pretty close to the tope end of what we were looking for. The NYT has an article that speculates that the median price for homes is going to drop for the first time on record and could continue in 2008 and 2009.
