Beware of Vulcan sports fans


Jewish date:  19 Marḥeshwan 5770 (Parashath Wayyera’).

Today’s quasi-holidays:  Saxophone Day, National Nachos Day, International Day for Preventing the Exploitation of the Environment in War and Armed Conflict.

Worthy causes of the day:  “Take Action: Keep up the heat | Save Darfur”, “We Need Generic Drugs: Ask these Senators to Fight « Public Option Please”, “AARP - Health Action Now!:  Tell the House: Pass the health reform bill!”, “We deserve an up-or-down vote!”, “Joe Lieberman must go.”, and “Take Action: Ask the Obama Administration to save Coal River Mountain”.

Today’s news and commentary:
  • All It Takes
  • When antiscience kills: dowsing edition”:  I cannot make something like this up.  No, people, one cannot detect explosives (or anything else) with a dowsing rod.  The results of relying on dowsing in this case are downright fatal.
Today’s weird thing is the Live Long & Prosper Foam Hand, perfect for any sporting event on Vulcan.  Enjoy, share the weirdness, Shabbath shalom, and live long and prosper.
