Goodbye, Blue Monday

Goodbye, Blue Monday!
Goodbye, Blue Monday!

The Tokyo (Narita) to Denver via LAX odyssey is over, jet lag is almost gone, and life seems to be settling back into a normal pattern for a while.  Later this week we get to go see our oldest daughter Bugs get hooded with her Master of Science/Nursing and Nurse-Practitioner, which is a happy event we’re looking forward to.

 So, in lieu of any deep thoughts which are probably precluded by my remaining jet lag, here are some Monday morning links.

Bernie’s Harebrained “Free College” Ideas.  Lots of the loony old Bolshevik Bernie’s ideas are harebrained, of course, but the free college claim is the purest corral litter.

A Human History of Fire.  All our technology, all of our civilization, everything that makes us different than every other animal on the planet – it all started with fire.

One company is looking to cure death.  Color me skeptical.  What could possibly go wrong?

Oh, and for the blog find of the day – check out Kristin Tate, the Libertarian Chick!

On that note, we return you to your Monday, already in progress.
