Yesterday was a great day for firing up the scanner, because of the great stuff that people put to paper. My daily ritual of going through the motions--school, Job One, falling asleep at Job Two, putting off Job Three and fretting about this weekend's Job Four--was appreciably enriched by the interesting things I picked up along the way:

Few publications are thinner than a job guide in a Bush economy. Except, perhaps, for the following:

--Valid Arguments of the Religious Right
--Down-to-Earth Sorority Girls
--The FCC List of Acceptable Content
--Stuff Dubya Knows

The beating was free of charge
After filing the story half an hour ahead of my 9:15 deadline (which, thanks to Hotmail, is still out in the cyberspace ether someplace), I grabbed tomorrow's edition of The Vermilion. In addition to the fine column "Uzi, can you see...," which is still drawing heated comments from Carl P...
"Liberal thinking is flawed and I intend to prove it."
...There was this picture!
Now THERE'S a thought...
Kudos to The Vermilion for actually acknowledging a curse word for the first time in three-and-a-half years, even if it didn't have the cojones to print out the entire "F." They're making strides.
So that was my day. Now go comment on the Uzi thread or something.
