A Few Serious Items

But just a few.

Concentration camp survivor and Nazi hunter Simon Wiesenthal passed away yesterday at the age of 96. How about taking a minute or two and reading about him, even if you are already familiar with his life?

Click.


It'll only take you a minute. This man deserves your attention.

In news that is, for better or worse, somewhat related, how's about we check in with Ryan Church of the Washington Nationals, to see how he's doing?

Ryan, what's on your mind
?

Off that topic (thankfully)... I have finally gotten around to watching a few episodes of Penn and Teller's excellent show Bullshit! Though the subjects are a bit obvious (talking to the dead is bullshit? alien abductions don't really occur? really?!?), Penn (and Teller, I suppose) keep things moving with the right mix of humor and outrage.

I was a bit scared to see chiropractic medicine thrown into one of the episodes, right next to reflexology and magnets, but they were careful to differentiate between chiropractors who do what they do to assist people with actual back troubles, and those sickos who perform on people with no discomfort whatsoever, and proclaim that they can heal any ailment or disease, including cancer.

Did I mention that they admit to adjusting babies that are under a week old?

Horrifying.

Very happy that Penn gave a nice, long, serious warning to cover my eyes if I didn't want to see an adjustment performed on a young child. Heartbreaking enough to have to hear it.

On a lighter note.

"PC Load Letter"? What the fuck does that mean?

Buy this, mmmkay?
