1) Check out Das Orbit, the newest addition to my RSS reader. It chronicles the curmudgeonly rants of an angry spaceman who works as a janitor on a piece of crap space station in the middle of nowhere. A must read for all the fans of Moon out there. And if that doesn't sell you on it, how about this: it's really f'ing funny.
2) Robert Byrd is back in the Senate. I still find it incredible that one of the men who filibustered the '64 Civil Rights act has become one of the smartest liberal voters in the Senate. I guess you can teach an old dog new tricks. Welcome back Senator Byrd!
