I'm confused. As far as I can tell Prop 30 raises income tax 3% on income over $1 million and doesn't mention capital gains. How does that lead to 1/6 dilution? Am I missing some fine print? http://vig.cdn.sos.ca.gov/2012/general/pdf/complete-vig-v2.pdf

 @trevoragilbert Sorry, I meant herbicide. Weed killer. RoundUp. Yeah, I think the problem with Monsanto is it's an overloaded metaphor (seeds, herbicide, patent trolling) and has mostly negative connotations. It does work when interpreted as a seed provider, but I didn't even realize Monsanto did that.

 @trevoragilbert Oh. That wasn't very clear from the article. I was left scratching my head trying to understand the metaphor - my initial reading of the headline was that Microsoft kills talent, since one of Monsanto's flagship products is a pesticide.

 @Brad Curious to know why Livefyre is better than Disqus, which I use on my blog and seems pretty ubiquitous. I started a poll to discuss the topic: http://gopollgo.com/which-commenting-platform-is-best-disqus-livefyre-or-facebook
