Opportunity, one of the Mars Exploration Rovers, has gotten “stuck on a sand dune”:http://space.com/missionlaunches/050428_rover_update.html and it’s not certain that they’ll be able to free it. (All six wheels are pretty “deeply buried”:http://marsrovers.nasa.gov/gallery/all/1/f/447/1F167871674EFF55DIP1214R0M1.JPG.)
I’m sure they’ll think of something and the Little Rover That Could will be on its way. Still, send good vibes to Opportunity whenever you can.
When you turn in your “life history” interview with a person from a culture different from yours, it is not a good idea to write one page, then turn in this, unaltered, as the remaining nine pages.
I will figure you out in record time, I will fail you, and I will report you to the Dean.

GeneralĖsimo Francisco Franco is “still dead”:http://www.voanews.com/english/2005-04-26-voa7.cfm.
Whew! That caught me by surprise. How was I to know that the “mayor of San Diego resigning”:http://www.mercurynews.com/mld/mercurynews/news/11485487.htm would be national news?
My favorite part:
_”Councilman Michael Zucchet, the city’s deputy mayor, will become acting mayor. Zucchet, who faces a federal trial next month for allegedly accepting bribes from the owner of a strip club, defended the mayor as an honorable man whose resignation took courage.”_
I’m relieved to know the city will be in good hands.
Now _that’s_ what I’m talkin’ about! I usually don’t go for over-the-top home technology projects, but the Jenkins Family Theater has serious panache. You have to give people credit when they’re willing to work hard to make something so crazy. (At least I do, with the ideas I have…)
