Jaguar spotted in the U.S.

Well, I suppose they're spotted wherever they are.

It's pretty cool, but I'm glad it only weighs 118 pounds and that I'm not in the wilds of Arizona.

Delightful religious commentary

This blog entry by the Internet Monk made my otherwise grumpiness-filled (with cause!) day.

(You've got to follow the link within iMonk's post in order to get why this is so pleasing unto me. Otherwise, it makes no sense.)

Bike lanes are not snow storage areas

But the municipalities to whom we pay our taxes are unaware of that. According to them, Fish Hatchery Road is apparently not a major vehicle route and the city of Madison is unable to communicate with Dane County. The primary reason that the bike lane on Fish Hatch is now clear-ish is because of the Great Melt of 2009.

So glad to be back on my road bike today. The melt has made it safe for this afternoon and possibly tomorrow. Must get studded tires -- maybe on my way home today. Otherwise, it's just the bus and the very heavy one-speed townie with two-inch-wide tires. Call me a wimp, but I'm just not up to riding 8.5 miles to work on that thing.

The Food and Drug Administration has found that Peanut Corp. of America knew in at least a few instances that its products were tainted with salmonella, but shipped them anyway.

The Plight of the North American Bipeds

My friend B.C. made this video. Isn't she smart?
