Jewish date: 29 Kislew 5770 (Parashath MiqQeṣ).
Today’s quasi-holidays: Barbie and Barney Backlash Day, National Chocolate Covered Anything Day.
Worthy cause of the day: “WakeUpWalMart.com - Hope for the Holidays 2009”.
NOTE: I took a lot of flack yesterday over my comments on Esperanto from Esperanto enthusiasts. If any Esperanto enthusiasts want to submit something on what is wrong with Hebrew, equivalent to what I posted on Esperanto, I will give it serious consideration.
Today’s news and commentary:
- “Congress: Would you please turn that TV ad down!”: Finally, Congress is considering doing something about all those noisy television advertisements!
- “Crowd Forcing: Random Movement of Bacteria Drives Gears”: I cannot make something like this up.
- “U.S. Drinking Water Widely Contaminated”: I really wish this was made up.
- “No Holds Barred: Why men cheat”
