Odds and Ends
- SI's Ian Thomsen names the top NBA draft picks by slot. The Pacers' Danny Granger has a pretty good shot of being the best player ever drafted 17th.
- Scientists are developing "synthetic trees" that collect 1,000 more carbon that real trees. These aren't the sort of synthetic trees that one adorns with strands of lights and colored bulbs.
- This Buffy/Twilight mash-up is pretty fantastic.
- Putting his entire presidency on tape was probably a bad move on Richard Nixon's part (New York Times). Turns out he said that abortion was necessary in the case of interracial pregnancies.
