‘I’ll be bahck’

Domo arigato, Mr. Roboto: Diplomats at the United Nations are urging that laws be drafted that would prevent the creation of killer robots that remove the ability for human control of drones and Terminator-like automatons in the future.

The diplomats cited real concerns about such technology and said it had nothing to do with Arnold Schwarzenneger sneaking up behind them and saying “Hasta la vista, baby.”



Release and catch: Someone broke into a fish hatchery east of Seattle and released 25,000 juvenile steelhead. Some speculate a disgruntled angler released the fish to protest a lawsuit that has halted the release of hatchery salmon.

Authorities are discounting reports that the driver of a pickup leaving the hatchery after the break-in looked a lot like a harbor seal in a fisherman's vest and bucket hat decorated with tied flies.



Don't know much about history: On this day in 1804, the Lewis and Clark expedition to explore the Louisiana Territory left camp near present-day Hartford, Illinois.

A half-day in, however, Clark ordered the party to turn around, doubting that Lewis, despite his insistence, had locked the door and made arrangements with the neighbors to feed the cat.
