Nothing is coming to mind as worth writing a post about, but there are several interesting little things floating around. So I thought instead of no update I would toss together these links.
- Gavin Newsom sets an example: Newsom has issued an executive order banning San Francisco city departments from buying bottled water, even for water coolers. The move was billed as a way to help stem global warming and save taxpayer money. [cnn]
- Cheney is evil: It always surprises me when Rolling Stone shows actual journalism skills. They recently ran a really interesting piece called, The Secret Campaign of President Bush’s Administration To Deny Global Warming. [rolling stone]
- Helping Hands: Did you know that there is a group that trains monkeys to help the disabled?! I sure didn’t, but it’s really pretty interesting. I worry about whether it is the best thing for the monkeys, but it seems to be well done. Reader’s Digest did a nice story on one guys situation and the monkey that helps him out. Definitely worth a read: [readers digest]
- Every 9.62 days, there is an equivalent amount of casualties in Iraq & Afghanistan as September 11th. Nevermind the fact that Iraq had sweet nada to do with 9/11. [prose before hos]
