Weekend update: Other things found last week:

This week I had a hard time finding much of anything interesting enough to post on my Infomaniac blog, or here. Must be the late winter doldrums.
And the terrible news. It's getting so I can barely watch TV news or read newspapers lately, it seems things are spinning out of control everywhere.
Let's hope for something positive, soon.
