THE PERIPHERY North Dakota Drones
Because they've been the vehicle for a lot of bad news and have become a symbol for government overreach, I'm betting 9/10 people respond unfavorably to the word "drone".

The Obama administration said today it has no control over how the New York Police Department spends millions of dollars in White House grants that helped pay for NYPD programs that put entire American Muslim neighborhoods under surveillance. In New York, the police commissioner said he wouldn't apologize.
Iran's defense minister today shrugged off a U.S. request for the return of an American spy drone captured by Iranian armed forces and instead demanded an apology from Washington. U.S. officials say the unmanned aircraft malfunctioned and was not brought down by Iran.
Yasir Afifi, a 20-year-old computer salesman and community college student, took his car in for an oil change earlier this month and his mechanic spotted an odd wire hanging from the undercarriage. The wire was attached to a strange magnetic device that puzzled Afifi and the mechanic. They freed it from the car and posted images of it online, asking for help in identifying it. Two days later, FBI agents arrived at Afifi's Santa Clara apartment and demanded the return of their property — a global positioning system tracking device now at the center of a raging legal debate over privacy rights.
Iran's intelligence chief insists American journalist Roxana Saberi, of North Dakota, is guilty because an appeals court did not acquit her of spying charges even though it reduced her prison sentence to a two-year suspended sentence.

The father of an American journalist jailed in Iran for allegedly spying for the U.S. says his daughter is "very weak" after seven days on a hunger strike.

Fargo parents visit her, say she's in good condition Iran's judiciary chief today ordered a full investigation into the case of a U.S. journalist convicted of spying and sentenced to eight years in prison, the state news agency reported.
Verdict expected in 2-3 weeks Iran said today its national security court put American journalist Roxana Saberi, who's from North Dakota, on trial behind closed doors on allegations she spied for the U.S. — a charge Washington calls baseless. The unusually swift one-day trial threatened to anger the U.S. at a time when the Obama administration is showing willingness to engage its longtime adversary after many years of rocky relations.
