He omitted some of my favorites:

reign vs rein
--especially that new kind of monarchy, "free reign"

pedal vs peddle
-- you don't peddle a bike unless you're selling

and one I spotted last week: using segway to mean segue!

It's true, this project is not likely to aid the state of Delaware, at least until the next ice age, but it was designed to help former mining and ranching communities in the Rocky Mountains that might want to reinvent themselves as winter resorts:

From the same article, regarding the private planes to Copenhagen:
"The airport says it is expecting up to 140 extra private jets during the peak period alone, so far over its capacity that the planes will have to fly off to regional airports – or to Sweden – to park, returning to Copenhagen to pick up their VIP passengers."

Great story, but the credit for the photo above should read: "Reconstruction by Kennis & Kennis/Photograph by Joe McNally, National Geographic."

The photo came from a National Geo story about Neanderthals published last October: http://ngm.nationalgeographic.com/2008/10/neanderthals/hall-text

Here's a video about how Kennis & Kennis built the red-haired Neanderthal model, whom they nicknamed Wilma after the Flintstones' character:

Anyone with a hunting license is expected to know the rules of when and where and what you can hunt. The regulations are extremely detailed and and can be found in the state fish and game websites linked at the bottom of the article. People who ignorant of the law should not be operating firearms on state property.

Dear Jabson Mondoñedo, I LOVE your 3 a.m. Iberian music program, especially when you have guests on your show. My dorm is right above the station so I can hear you just fine. Your fan, Marmilyn Zug
