War-Like Activity in the Middle East: "Palestinian militants have fired more rockets at Israeli cities after Israel carried out dozens of overnight air strikes on the Gaza Strip," reports the BBC. "Israel said it had intercepted 15 rockets on Wednesday, including eight over Tel Aviv, Ashkelon and Ashdod. Reports from Gaza said at least eight people had been killed in the latest Israeli air strikes."

Meanwhile in Syria: "Syrian rebels rampaged through a Sunni village in the central province of Hama Wednesday, firing indiscriminately at civilians and killing 14 people, including seven women," reports the Associated Press.

Meanwhile in North Korea: The government is firing missiles into the sea.

Oh Dear God: "Two University of Miami football players were arrested on sexual battery charges Tuesday and kicked off the team and campus for an alleged incident involving a 17-year-old girl," reports ABC News. "Court and jail records show JaWand Blue and Alex Figueroa, both 20-year-old linebackers, were booked Tuesday. The two admitted to getting the classmate intoxicated and then allegedly raping her several times in Figueroa’s dorm room over the 4th of July weekend."

Pummeled by Storms: The Eastern U.S., where 300,000 are now without power and at least five people have been killed.

Roger Bennett from Men in Blazers had an interesting thing to say about the Brazil team. When he's not cutting up with his pal Davo he makes films about football, and he made one about the Brazilian team, both today and in light of their shattering defeat in the 1950 final game. He said that every single Brazil player was absolutely convinced that they had been selected by God to win this World Cup and that all they had to do was show up to collect their trophy amidst the glory of the Almighty. That's a bizarre kind of hubris, I think, and maybe it explains why they didn't seem to have football on their mind at all yesterday.

I wonder if Chelsea Clinton is going to have twins? I mean, wouldn't that be more useful to her mom's campaign? I'll bet they'll be one boy and one girl so that her mom can win over both men and women. I guess the only unanswered question right now is if any of the babies will be Latino, black, or Jewish. Her husband is partly Jewish so I'm guessing this is how her mom wants to play it. Shrewd.

Over an hour since the news was posted and the first comment. Not a good metric for Index Newspapers LLC to take note of, and increasingly shows how Slog is, unfortunately, becoming passe.

@1 I think that's the most common kind of hubris.
