Marcy Wheeler, automotive expert, briefly  discusses the race for the first driverless car.

Then we discuss the use, and misuse, of "crazy" as a way of describing Republicans on the Tea Party  wing.  Marcy argues that in an envrionment of absolutely insane policy like the US in Syria, or the F35 fighter project, we should be careful when throwing the C word around. One of the Village centrists' crazy policies is domestic surveillance--massive violations of the Fourth Amendment that Freedom Party Republicans work against.  CISA, the Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act comes up. You can read some background on CISA and follow all these stories on emptywheel.net.
