Low-Tech Fixes for High-Tech Problems (this is extremely helpful)

Poor Shea Stadium.  (Who else thinks they should call the new one Shea instead of CitiField as a punishment for mismanaging stimulus funds?)

This ad ran in the Times on Wednesday, and I think it’s incredibly depressing.  Come on MetLife Foundation, don’t we have enough crap to deal with?


Because my photography skills are lacking at best, and you may not be able to read it, the caption reads: “Imagine not being able to recognize your best friend.”

I’ll get the tissues.

Remember those office lip syncs?  There are more now, and while I only watch them doing songs in English, it’s still pretty sweet.  (Some French are better at lip syncing English than others.)
