Planet Goldilocks

Juuussst right: NASA now says there are probably more Earth-like planets in the Milky Way than the 8 billion people on Earth. About 1 out of every 5 sun-like star seems to have an Earth-sized planet that's not too hot or not too cold.

The cool news is that, odds are, there are other sentient beings in the universe. The not-so-cool news is that some of them are probably very similar to NFL miscreant and rejected "Sopranos" minor character name Richie Incognito.

Make him invisible: Incognito, who soon will need to change his last name to "Non Grata," allegedly sent racist and threatening text messages to a teammate, which leads The Buzz to ask a couple of questions:

1. Is it possible to bully a 300-pound athlete?

2. How do they tap out text messages with those fat football-player fingers?

Intel, and Hot Air, Inside: Microsoft has signed a deal to run some of its data infrastructure with Texas wind power.

With an abundance of loquacious politicians like Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Don't Get Between Him and a Camera, Texas is believed to have the nation's largest reserves of wind power.
