Travels by Michael Crichton: And now for something different(for the author); a non-fiction book. Not really a travelogue, however, though he does travel. A lot of the book covers autobiographical material as we learn of his educational experiences and why he didn't become a practicing Doctor. (Why do Drs 'practice' anyway?) Some of the travels are psychic in nature as he learns about spoon bending, auras, and the like.
An interesting book, but perhaps misleadingly titled.

eWEEK Magazine reports that in 2008 sales of laptops outpaced sales of desktop computers for the first time ever...

They also report that it is estimated that 12,000 laptops are lost or stolen in U.S. airports every week...yes that's 12,000 every week!!!

1) Big Brother is probably the company you work for.

2) If napkins are for your mouth, and sanitary napkins are not; then are we wiping our mouths with unsanitary napkins? And why?

3) If you are polyorchid then you have more than 2 testicles. That's gotta be uncomfortable in tight pants!

4) Pepper...the gateway spice...

5) In life, is having options optional or a requirement?

6) And finally...There's no ignorance like ignorance of one's ignorance.


Obama: 'I Screwed Up'

Three words from the new president that you never heard from President Bush: "I screwed up." So said Barack Obama in reference to his handling of Tom Daschle's appointment in a series of interviews yesterday. "I'm here on television saying I screwed up. And that's part of the era of responsibility, is not never making mistakes, it's owning up to them and trying to make sure you don't repeat them and that's what we intend to do," he said on NBC. He told CNN, "Look, ultimately, I campaigned on changing Washington and bottom-up politics. And I don't want to send a message to the American people that there are two sets of standards, one for powerful people, and one for ordinary folks who are working every day and paying their taxes."

Nice to hear someone admit they're wrong for a change, thanks Mr President.
