fresh from this morning, that's Isaiah's The World Today Just Nuts "The Second Term."
that's a strong comic. how strong?
isaiah always shows c.i. c.i. will tell him, 'you can post it, you don't need my permission.'
but he always shows c.i.
so this morning, she's getting up and returning calls and isaiah's 1 of those. she looks at it while she's on the phone with him. he asks if it's good?
she says, 'it's great.' he says no, just good. he's wrong, it's great. but c.i. really thought so. she said, 'isaiah, you don't understand. this is so great, as soon as it goes up, i'm going back to sleep. i'm going to sleep in. this is strong enough that i don't have to feel like, "oh, i better write something so no 1's disappointed."'
it really is good.
and it's true.
martin kase had an interesting story on npr's 'all things considered.' here's the opening:
Environmental officials in Canada are investigating what some have called a "rogue climate change experiment." Over the summer, a native village on the coast of British Columbia dumped more than 100 tons of iron sulfate into the ocean. The idea was to cause a bloom of plankton, which would then capture greenhouse gases.
That's the theory, anyway. The reality is a bit more complicated.
The iron dumping was initiated by an organization called the Haida Salmon Restoration Corp., a company set up by the tiny village of Old Massett. Ever since the news broke, the corporation has been on the defensive.
"This project was not entered into lightly," said the company's president, John Disney, at a Vancouver news conference. "When we added iron into the ocean, there was an almost immediate observable impact on marine life, such as whales and other sea mammals, sea birds, pelagic fish. And this could all be observed immediately from the research vessel."
that would be very interesting if it was true. of course, we'd also need to know how it would impact the fish and other living beings in the sea. it could really screw up the food chain if it even knocked out a needed single-cell organism.
but i really found the story interesting.
and, thank goodness, it's not about an election.
let's close with c.i.'s 'Iraq snapshot:'
