Odds and Ends

I've always taken the banned books issue to heart. (I probably should have gone with that public library job.) Anyway, this site has some good comics - not as racy as Questionable Content and certainly not as cynical as Unshelved.

We managed to pull together a party of four for book club last night. The book was A Prayer for Owen Meany, which I read some time ago and enjoyed very much. We didn't talk about the book though; never do with this group. Most of the talk was of pregnancy related issues. I wonder why?

As a result of book club, I was spared watching the debate. Thank goodness. And while I don't think we have to worry about it any more, here's a fun little site that helps envision President Palin - mouse over and click for sound (thanks Kate).

In News of the Weird - Who knew that "going postal" could ever apply to librarians? An adjunct librarian at Northeast Lakeview College in Live Oak, Texas walked into the library and shot a librarian. Apparently they had quarreled about work ethic in the past. Well! That's some ethics issue, isn't it?
