Jewish date: 4 Nisan 5770 (Parashath Wayyiqra’).
Today’s quasi-holiday: Poultry Day.
Worthy causes of the day: “Save the Internet: Take Action!: Stop the Great Internet Rip-Off”, “American Heart Association - Reinventing Healthcare: Time to Act: Tell Your Representative to "Vote YES"”, “Heart Disease and Stroke. You’re the Cure.: Tell your Senator NOW is the time to protect South Carolina kids”, and “Save BioGems: Take Action: Stop Pebble Mine”.
Today’s news and commentary:
BBC budget gets drastically slashed”.
Note that if things ever get this bad, they can always free up money by getting rid of their news division, which is a waste of money anyway, given its propensity towards publishing fiction about Israel. Enjoy, share the weirdness, and Shabbath shalom.
