  • " Hottest Summer ...": Here's the link to the USA Today piece on the second-hottest summer on record. Including that box of the Top Ten Summers of the past 100-or-so years.

  • " Frequent Travelers' Program ...": Here's the whining piece about how people who travel a lot don't want to be inconvenienced by paying for the privilege of bypassing YOU in the security line!

    Mullfoto of the Day

    This is what the Washington Post newsroom looks like at 7:10 AM. It is counter-intuitive, but on a morning newspaper, everyone has to work in the afternoon and at night. The First Edition of the Post rolls off the presses at about 11:30 pm. The Final Edition at about 4:30 am.


    Catchy Caption of the Day

    Actual Caption:

    A python sits on a road after swallowing a pregnant ewe in the village of Kampung Jabor, about 200 km (124 miles) east of Kuala Lumpur, on September 5, 2006. The six-metre reptile weighing 198.5 lbs was too laden to move, making it easy for firemen to capture it.

    Ok. This is what I'm saying. If Switzerland would import pythons to patrol its highways then people wouldn't be afraid of running over goats. Am I wrong about this?
