‘At first, on the nutty bonuses, Team Obama thought it could get away with the same absurd argument used to justify the nearly $8 billion in unnecessary earmarks it allowed Congress to jam into this year’s overdue spending bill: It was written last year; we’re just signing off on it; we’ll do better in the future.’ Maureen Dowd, from her Op-Ed Column ‘No Boiled Carrots,’ another GET ANGRY piece I have liked.
Fahrenheit 1985 at your local thrift store? ‘Not until 1985 did it become unlawful to use lead pigments in the inks, dyes, and paints used in children’s books. Before then—and perhaps particularly in the great age of children’s-book illustration that lasted through the early twentieth century—the use of such pigments was not uncommon, and testing can still detect lead residues in books today. This doesn’t mean that the books pose any hazard to children.’
Michael Crichton may have been right! ‘A small dinosaur that once roamed northeastern China was covered with a stiff, hair-like fuzz, a discovery that suggests feathers began to evolve much earlier than many researchers believe — maybe even in the earliest dinosaurs.’
…and God Bless America!
