Surprisingly busy today, but I do have some links:

* As if millions of voices suddenly cried out in terror and were suddenly silenced: Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince delayed until July.

* The market for sport utility vehicles is starting to look a lot like the housing market, spreading pain to consumers, automakers and dealers.

* ...but SUVphiles should take comfort that it's not yet looking like the housing market in Detroit:

The fact that a home on the city's east side was listed for $1 recently shows how depressed the real estate market has become in one of America's poorest big cities.

And it still took 19 days to find a buyer.
* Out: the carbon crisis. In: the oxygen crisis.

* Good news on the solar front: two large solar projects are being announced in California, which when completed "will produce as much energy as a small nuclear reactor or a large coal plant."

* And yet another airline not to fly: American.
Federal regulators announced Thursday they will seek fines totaling $7.1 million against American Airlines over maintenance issues and problems with its drug- and alcohol-testing programs.
