Two bad ideas and a good one

Good idea: making a robot that is touch-sensitive enough to help elderly people sit or stand up - given the recognized shortage of healthcare professionals around the country, this handy Japanese invention could be a real boon in a few years!

Bad idea: letting Middle-Eastern money own more of our economy. Isn't oil enough?

Bad idea: publishing the ramblings of a perverted fiction writer about waterboarding the President's daughter - the one who's into all the humanitarian aid. (And missing editing the first occurrence of the s-word, while editing it later in the article - I figured they were just quoting until I saw edits later... guess Time isn't what it used to be!)
