I enjoyed reading the fanciful obituary. Made me smile.

I know I am not the norm, but I'd prefer not to be visited by a clown or a raggedy ann/andy or a mime or a marionette or a ventriloquist while in the hospital (or any other time).

I think this situation might be a good illustration of the difference between the work of trained journalists and untrained "blogger" types.

I think Rob forgot to include other buzzwords, like "tax and spend liberal", "elitist", "death panel", "al gore's slideshow", "real american", "muslim", etc in his comment.

I, too, hope Coffee Cat doesn't change. It is interesting that they become part of a chain so that they can capitalize on the anti-chain sentiment! I hope it works (although I do like Peete's, too).

Depending on a building's occupancy use, there are differing requirements for the number of exits, emergency lighting, etc, etc. These requirements are straightforward and in the building codes. There is a huge difference between the requirements for manufacturing facilities and "assembly" facilities, so this crackdown does not come as a surprise to me.

Sounds like interesting material, but I am not sure that it would be allowed in a building out here (yet): I looked at the manufacturer's web site and it doesn't give any specific "structural properties" of the material (allowable stresses, modulus of elasticity, etc) that an engineer would need, nor does it list any approvals by the International Code Council or UL or some other approving agency. Without these items, I doubt a local building department would allow its use. These items might be in the pipeline, so it will be interesting to see them when available.

I am 100% for gun control. I might make an exception for flintlock rifles and muzzle loading muskets. I see no need or benefit (or constitutional authority) for average Americans packing handguns and automatic weapons.

I find the latecomers really annoying, regardless of age. At UCSB, they seem to start the shows late to accommodate latecomers -- I wish they'd start right on time and quit enabling these inconsiderate people. I guess they think everyone is on "santa barbara time".
