- I was very happy to read this morning that the space shuttle landed safely. (My eyewitness account of Columbia disintegrating over Texas--without my realizing it at the time--can be found here.)
- I had lots of comments on the Raffy situation a while back; what does everyone think about Kenny Rogers' suspension getting lifted today?
- Last week's comment thread that won't die is up to
2324 entries now, but today's post should knock it off the bottom of the page. Here's the permalink if you want to keep the thread going. (Jim P. points out the irony in having that many comments on a post that was entitled "Short and Random.")
- And finally, speaking of comments, I have enabled comment dating, as requested by several readers. Let me know what you think of the format I chose. (The other project, "commenter dating," which will allow single commenters on The Musings to meet up for a no-strings-attached lunch date, is still in the very early development stages.)
Taking the "Jonny Cat" concept a little too far, maybe: My cat, Tasha, has had some issues lately with missing her litterbox more often than not, but does anyone who's met her think that she'd ever go for this?
Blowing out the candles: Happy birthday to Lileks, one of my favorite bloggers...or, better put, one of my favorite writers, who just happens to blog.
