Accepting the scientific consensus

Smithsonian tells me that scientists say we are a few years away from a 2,000 pound pumpkin.  I must know what candidates for public office think about this prospect immediately, please.

Misunderestimating the people

Somehow somebody stuck into every lawn in town a small (3x5?) cellophane US flag (the staff says, "Made in China.")  Taped below and in line with the flag is a business card for a local pro wrestler.  It has a picture of him clobbering some poor schlep in a black leotard, next to his slogan ("It's Quittin' Time!").  Below that are some promotional weblinks.

So I've been forced to radically revise upward my estimate of how tasteful and useful September 11 commentary and commemoration would be this year.
