A Special Saturday Odds and Ends

Just didn’t get around to blogging yesterday, so for this week, “Friday odds and ends” is being replaced by “Saturday odds and ends”.

1) At least my blog didn’t make it onto this list: http://tech.msn.com/products/slideshow.aspx?cp-documentid=13523062

2) Because nothing says “I love you”, like a gift with the word “bomb” in it: http://lifehacker.com/5099743/make-your-own-bath-bombs

3) My favorite “Blinding Glimpse of the Obvious” headline of the day…”Wal-mart death preventable, union says.” Uh, yeah, if only all those people hadn’t rushed the store…

4) There is nothing funny about this entry.  But I was so moved by looking at the Tribune coverage remembering the 50th anniversary (today) of the Our Lady of the Angels School fire which killed 92 children and 3 nuns. There were no fire escapes from the second floor, and most of the children who survived jumped from the windows: http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/local/chi-081120-angels-fire-photogallery,0,5934226.photogallery
