Today’s quasi-holidays: National Play-doh Day, Collect Rocks Day, Wife Appreciation Day, International Day for the Preservation of the Ozone Layer, and Mayflower Day.
Worthy cause of the day: I got a flu shot earlier today. Please consider getting one yourself and save someone else the inconvenience (or death) from getting the flu. Thank you.
Furthermore: “Speak Up for Our Oceans: Oppose Offshore Drilling”, “Oil and Ice Don't Mix: Protect the Arctic Ocean”, “Mining Plan Threatens Lake Clark and Katmai National Parks”, “Take Action: Add your voice - don't forget Darfur”, and “NO MORE LEHMAN BROTHERS”.
Today’s news and commentary:
- “Longest Lightning Storm: Saturn Sets Record”
- “Insurers Shun Multitasking Speech Devices”: Yes, someone making rules has done something mindbogglingly stupid. They would rather pay several times more for a bigger, deliberately crippled device when a less expensive, fully-functional device would do just as well. Is it any wonder that medical insurance in this country costs way too much?
- “Physical Dexterity”
Enjoy and share the weirdness.
