Squirrel Trek

What with the volcano and all, We have been carefully monitoring Squirrel's journey to Anchorage at Our Global Monitoring Station via satellite. We want to make sure he gets home for Baby Squirrel's big day! We have put forces on alert in case it becomes necessary to send in a team to extract him.

An Odd Situation

For those of you who perhaps haven't been following the mightiest spectacle in all of sport -- I refer, of course, to the NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament -- I thought I would remark on the peculiar situation the Fates have dealt me this time. In the next round, the East Regional Semi-Finals, my undergraduate alma mater, Villanova, will be playing my graduate alma mater, Duke. That's never happened to me before. I will end up rooting for Duke, because that's the institution from which I have the higher degree, and... well... I'm a snob. But either way, I win. I like that kind of situation.

Diplomatic Gaffe!

No one told the First Lady of Cameroon about the rule that you don't wear a fancier hat than the Pope. A shocking breach of etiquette!
