Did You Know...

Offbeat News link at has been replaced as of this afternoon by a feature on shuttle debris. What, the shuttle went down and suddenly nothing's funny anymore? What's wrong with the human condition? If you ask me, in times like these, we need humor more than ever.

Also, I heard on NPR today that, among other experiments on the Columbia flight, astronauts had brought along several rose buds in a small greenhouse to see if they would bloom in space. The report did not include data about whether the experiment had been successful, but it feels hopeful and right to imagine that they did bloom after all.

If roses don't bloom in space, I'm not going.
