The soup needs salt, but is very tasty. Especially with smoked salmon crumbled into it.

Not much to report today. Lesson 3 on the Crash Course in Evolution is posted over in cushing312.

Anyone feeling cynical about VD should go and find themselves a copy of The Onion to read. Several amusing articles this week. I especially like Point-Counterpoint: Cosmology -- "Darling, I Will Give You The Moon And The Stars" / "Giving Me The Moon And Stars Would Have Disastrous Effects On Our Galaxy". For best effect, read counter-point to yourself in the voice of Sarah Vowell.
