Conan O'Brien and Andy Richter dub Ghost in the Shell (link roundup)

Conan O'Brien and Andy Richter dub Ghost in the Shell.

And a few more links:

1. Bob Dylan was detained by the police basically because of his skin color:

Sergeant Craig Spencer from Long Branch police station said: "Residents called to complain there was an old scruffy man acting suspiciously.

"It was an odd request because it was mid-afternoon, but it’s an ethnic Latin area and the residents felt the man didn’t fit in. Lets just say he looked eccentric."
Interesting to compare the Telegraph article to the NY Times article, which more vaguely called it a "predominantly minority neighborhood." Thanks for protecting us from the facts, NY Times.

2. Photos of the International Space Station passing in front of the sun.

3. Stunning factoid: Water demand in Los Angeles reached a 32-year low this summer.
