Morning Newsdome: Google creates car that drives itself, humans now obsolete

>> Google says they have created cars that "can drive themselves, using artificial-intelligence software." Seven test cars have successfully driven 1,000 miles without human drivers, even down the curvy hills of San Francisco, and they say these cars are safer than human drivers because they react faster and don't get sleepy or intoxicated. And here I thought the Segway was all high-tech. (the New York Times)

>> A drill has finally reached the 33 Chilean miners trapped for sixty-seven days half a mile underground. With the dangerous release phase of the miners days away, Chilean authorities are now drafting a "tentative, but secret list" to determine the order in which the miners will be released. What factors are they taking into account here? How many mistresses a miner has waiting above ground? (CBS News)

>> White House senior adviser David Axelrod told "Face the Nation" yesterday that the GOP and the Chamber of Commerce have funded midterm election ads with huge sums of money from undisclosed sources. How will the Obama administration call them out? With midterm election ads. (the New York Times)

>> Eight of the nine Bronx-based gang members allegedly involved in the torturing and sodomizing of four men for being gay last weekend have been arrested. Then this weekend N.Y. Republic gubernatorial nominee Carl Paladino said in a speech, "There is nothing to be proud of in being a dysfunctional homosexual...I don't want them [children] to be brainwashed into thinking that homosexuality is an equally valid and successful option. It isn't." Not a great time to be gay in New York. (CNN, NY Post)

>> And finally: Assisted by two "Howard Stern Show" cameramen, 24-year-old Juan Rodriguez streaked at Obama's Philadelphia rally yesterday after British billionaire Alki David offered $1 million for someone to run naked in front of the president with the name of his website across their chest. David has said he hasn't seen the video yet, but if he meets all the requirements, Rodriguez will be paid in cash. That is after he's been released from jail. (the Weekly Standard)
