Jewish date: 25 Shevaṭ 5770 (Parashath Mishpaṭim).
Today’s quasi-holiday: Toothache Day (probably a good time to reflect on dental hygiene).
Worthy causes of the day: “Heart Disease and Stroke. You’re the Cure.: Alert Letter: Let the Senate Rules Committee Know it's Time to Pass the Cigarette Tax”, “MoveOn.org Political Action: Tell Congress: Stand with Melanie”, and “Take Action: Help Protect New Mexico's Paleozoic Treasures”.
Today’s news and commentary:
- “City Dwellers Drive Deforestation in 21st Century”
- “Third-hand smoke contains carcinogens too, study says”: Yes, the bad news from smoking always gets worse and worse.
