MSW Newsletter - Stories of Interest 5/29/12

We here at Mike Salvi's World hope you all had a fantastic weekend whether you went away, stayed home, honored dead soldiers, celebrated somehow, or balked at the idea of memorial day altogether. Not sure if you noticed or not, but over the past few days, some stuff happened. Here's what stood out the most to me.
