Gar: Mom told me at the dinner table. She saw it on Facebook.
Way to go, leggy! The “You can be good without God” ad campaign, which the Indiana Atheist Bus Campaign fought to put on Bloomington Transit busses, sparked a heated debate. This debate started conversation in the community and a discussion that took place Tuesday night at Collins Living-Learning Center. “We are not trying to change anyone’s opinion. We just want everyone’s opinion to be heard,”...

Love the (202): Washington’s hip-hop community couldn’t have given itself a more Freudian nickname. “The DMV” stands for the District, Maryland and Virginia, but it feels like a big fat metaphor for a city that’s been waiting … waiting … waiting … for a national rap star to emerge. (WaPo) Wale’s album drops November 10th. DC hip hop’s...
Two tokens of inspiration from my mom’s blog: Anthopper We all know the story of the ant and the grasshopper. Of course, the ant is the hero in this story. The ant worked diligently and prepared for the coming winter, while the grasshopper frolicked and played. Many of us tend to be too much like the ant, scurrying, working and planning non-stop. We postpone fun for later. Perhaps we...
Happy Sweetest Day!
I didn’t know about this day until today when I answered the door to sign for a dozen roses and balloon my roommate’s boyfriend had sent. Apparently it’s a big deal in the Midwest. Sweetest Day is an observance celebrated primarily in the Great Lakes region and parts of the Northeast United States on the third Saturday in October. Once known as a day to spread love and cheer...
In fifth grade I had a notecard taped above my Compaq desktop with all of my e-mail addresses. Mind you, I was eleven and not getting an e-mail, let alone many e-mails to necessitate multiple e-mail accounts, but that didn’t dissuade me from the almost instant gratification of new e-mail accounts: yahoo, hotmail, fastmail, etc. I needed the notecard to keep all my login/passwords...

And while cheaper beers — a group within which PBR has long been something of a mascot — are outperforming their more expensive peers as consumers look for low-cost options these days, there’s clearly more than pricing at work here. […] The answer, wholesalers and beer-marketing experts...
Out of oatmeal, I had a weird impulse at 6:40 am this morning to make breakfast quinoa. Even with apples, bananas, raisins, cinnamon, and honey it’s not quite breakfast food.
My rear bike brakes are less than functional. I’ve meantvto get a tune up for over a year, but I never have the opportunity to sacrifice my bike to the shop for a few days. Today, my rear brakes worked like a charm. It was as though a bike repairman fixed them for me while it was parked. When I arrived at my destination, I realized the scarf tied to my backpack had just been stuck in my...

Alton Brown speaks on Sandra Lee's flavor of...
In a recent interview with an Atlanta radio station, he talked a little smack about some of his Food Network co-stars. He playfully ribbed Giada’s weight and Ina’s relationship with her husband, but his story about Sandra Lee was the funniest. He said Sandra was “semi-sane… semi-out of her mind. I had one conversation with her … and she wanted to show me the place where she had gotten this bad...
