Three for Tuesday

Something I didn't know before: In New York State, turning right on red is prohibited in cities with a population of more than one million unless a sign permits it. Of course, I knew about the no-right-on-red rule in New York City, but I didn't know that it was based on the city's population. Of the other cities in NY State, Buffalo has about 300K people, Rochester has about 200K, and Albany has 100K. So that rule probably holds only in NYC.

Insurgents Post Sniper Training Exercises Online
I'm not so sure it's such a big deal. It's the kind of training material that would-be insurgents probably get already, except that they're now putting it on the web. And this way, we now know what they're targeting and can shuffle things around to foil them. Naturally, no link was provided with the story.
