>> The 7.0 magnitude earthquake that struck Haiti Tuesday was the most powerful to hit the island nation in 200 years, leaving thousands to be feared dead. Things were just going too well for the Caribbean country. It's called karma, Haiti. (Voice of America)

>> An Iraq war veteran was arrested for recording a rap song with "violent" lyrics protesting the "unending war." Forget the thousands of people killed in war, it's rap lyrics that are really destructive. (the Guardian)

>> Google is threatening to withdraw from China over censorship and cyberspying instead of accommodating the giant country like most foreign businesses. It's not all about the money for Google--it's about creating hyperlocal maps in peace! (the Wall Street Journal)

>> Somali pirate Abduwali Abdukhadir Muse who was captured after hijacking a ship this summer pled not guilty in court today. His appearance was described as "relaxed" even without his parrot and pirate hat. (the New York Times)

>> And finally, Sarah Palin made her Fox News debut last night, to "provide the fair and the balanced reporting and analysis voters in this country deserve." It looks likely that Palin could step back from being Palin, and just blend in with all the other Fox News nonsensical talking heads. (ABC News)
