We hope you’re having a great day wherever you are and that the news we dig up for you this morning helps you navigate the day more efficiently!
It’s a busy world out there, and you don’t have a ton of free time to be doing Internet searches for the most important items of the day… lucky for you, we do. We drink gallons of coffee in an effort to stay awake long enough to scour the far reaches of the world wide web in an effort to bring you the most important, useful and useless information every single day.
So without further ado, here’s what we’re reading Wednesday, March 11, 2015.

Wikipedia is suing the NSA! Wikipedia filed a lawsuit on Tuesday challenging the constitutionality of the National Security Agency’s mass surveillance of Internet communications. On Tuesday two of Wikipedia’s founders wrote an op-ed demanding that the government stop spying on innocent American citizens.

Wikipedia’s lawsuit may not stand up to scrutiny because they may have a difficult time proving that they have standing to bring the suit… but Apple doesn’t have the same problem.

Apple most assuredly has the right and the standing to demand that the courts order the CIA to cease and desist, as their hacking efforts could cause great harm to the Apple company and their shareholders.
If the GOP nominates Jeb Bush to be their candidate for President, then they will be giving up the natural advantage they have over Democrats when it comes to voters who want “change.”
The Presbyterian Church (USA) is just 7 votes shy of officially adopting an Amendment that would give same-sex marriages equal footing with traditional marriage in the PCUSA!
