Good News, Bad News, Weird News

Many people in the Great Northlands have already figured out that Frozen Water does, in fact, work like Ice.

In fact, here is a list of people and things who have experienced this phenomenon:
Sarah Palin
All Ice-Fisherman in Minnesota
Vehicles of all descriptions

Thanks to Fail Blog for, well, never failing

Really Bad News:
Court orders Arizona to allow 'Choose Life' license plates from All News Feeds: Honest to Pete. First crosses in one of the Carolinas, now this. If you want to announce your political views on your car or truck, just get a freakin' bumper sticker and stop wasting taxpayer money.

Police: Man Attacks Library Patrons, Employee With Rock from by Steven
Good Lord! One of the victims was a 67 year-old librarian. That just is not right. On the other hand, a colleague in another local library system was fatally stabbed a number of years ago. Better a rock than a knife.

Good News!
‘Wi-Fi library’ finally gets a toilet from by Steven - “I used to say ‘We’re the Wi-Fi library without a pot to piss in,’ ” said library Director Susan D’Amico.”
I don't know which is worse, not having a toilet or having cleaning the staff toilet (in an unheated room in Iowa) listed as part of your professional job duties. Yes, the latter happened to your loyal Booktender in the 1980s. Still, hats off to this spunky, funky, little library!

Weird News
