6-in-the-morning1 WHAT HAPPENS WHEN THE TELLETUBBIES MOVED TO SELLAFIELD (Wikipeadia) The London 2012 Olympic organizing committee unveiled its two mascots yesterday (The Guardian).

A hint to to Harvard Broadcasting: it’s called ‘podcasting.’ Look it up.

6 NO, IT’S NOT GOING TO HELP WITH YOUR GRADES Even if the Weyburn School Division converted my old high school into a strip club, (Chicago Tribune) I still wouldn’t have gone to class reunions. Just some things aren’t meant to be.
