Jewish date: 8 Nisan 5770 (Parashath Ṣaw).
Today’s quasi-holidays: World Meteorological Day, Toast Day, American Diabetes Association Alert Day.
Worthy cause of the day: “Protect the Flat-tailed Horned Lizard - The Petition Site”, “Health Insurance Reform: Finish the Job | Senator Harry Reid, Nevada - HarryReid.com”, and “Urge Congress to Increase Funding for Emergency Food Assistance - The Petition Site”.
Today’s news and commentary:
- “Still seething over bailouts”: There are some good ideas for how to handle bailouts in this article. I particularly like the notion that executives should have to pay the company if they do a bad job.
Image of an alien craft determined to assimilate our Legos via WikipediaToday’s weird thing is the Brickshelf Gallery of Star Trek ships modeled in Legos. Whoever created this has a lot more free time than probably most people. The Borg cube is especially good. Enjoy and share the weirdness.
