  My computer crashed this morning, and didn't want to reboot. It finally got going again, but I'm afraid that it could go down again. I have a DVD-RW drive on the way right now -- I hope it arrives in time for me to be able to back up the hard drive. *fingers crossed*

  Real Ultimate Howard!
(Note: If you are not familiar with the Real Ultimate Power meme, then you just won't get it.)

Not that there's anything wrong with that...

  I have to wonder if The Advocate didn't Photoshop this picture of Wesley Clark. There is a smaller picture with the article, presumably from the same photo shoot, where he is wearing a black suit, white shirt, and dark patterned tie. I think that they Photoshopped his suit into a more casual look.

Update: I read an article where a Clark staffer described the photo shoot stylists descending on Clark and unbuttoning his black shirt, tugging the t-shirt down to show more chest, and putting more bronzer on him -- a sort of Queer Eye for the Straight Guy drive by.

The Associated Press has done a story on the delightful Southwestern Indiana practice of eating cow brain sandwiches and the implications of the discovery of mad cow disease in a cow in Washington State.

Here's a picture of James eating one at this year's Fall Festival.

Brain sandwiches are very popular here, especially at the Fall Festival, and there is always a long line in front of the brain sandwich booths, until they, inevitably, run out. I have never eaten a brain sandwich, and don't plan to eat one any time soon.
