    It appears you didn't miss much.

      • Good stuff, Reno!

        Your camp is better appointed than some of my friends' kitchens. And the view...

        So which is more difficult - the day before or the day after vacation?
        Once in a while you get shown the light, in the strangest of places if you look at it right

          The Day after is more difficult; On the Day Before at least at that point in time you have something to look forward to. . .

                  • I do wish I were on vacation, Lothar, but at least this is only a 4 day work week.

                    OTOH: The rest of the Hqs personnel are moving in from Reno over the next two days. The peace & quiet will be gone forever.

                    • There's a slight problem in the White House garden

                      So what is sludge, really? A stinking, sticky, dark-grey to black paste, it's everything homeowners, hospitals and industries put down their toilets and drains. Every material-turned-waste that our society produces (including prescription drugs and the sweepings of slaughterhouses), and that wastewater treatment plants are capable of removing from sewage, becomes sludge. The end product is a concentrated mass of heavy metals and carcinogenic, teratogenic, and hormone-disrupting chemicals, replete with antibiotic-resistant bacteria. There are some 80,000 to 90,000 industrial chemicals, including a host of dioxin-like deadly substances, which are allowed to be present in sludge under current EPA rules. What's worse, there's no way of knowing which toxic chemicals and heavy metals are entering the wastewater stream at any given time or in what concentrations. Sludge is always an unknown quantity, and therefore, assessing whether sludge is safe to use for growing food, is -- in practice -- impossible.
                      Recently the National Park Service discovered that the White House lawn, where the garden was planted, contains highly elevated levels of lead -- 93 parts per million. It's enough lead for anyone planning to have children pick vegetables in that garden or eat produce from it to reconsider their plans: lead is highly toxic to children's developing organs and brain functions -- however, it's below the 400 ppm the EPA suggests is a threat to human health.

                      What caused this alarming contamination of the White House lawn? Some news outlets speculated that residue from lead paint might have caused the toxicity. However an article running on Mother Jones online has a more probable explanation. During the 1990s, the Clintons agreed to have the South Lawn of the White House "fertilized" with ComPRO, a commercially available "compost made from a nearby wastewater plant's solid effluent, a.k.a. sewage sludge."

                        • A Girl From Homer, AK, Weighs in on Sarah

                          I have said Sarah Palin's political ambition combined with her intellect is like putting a jet engine on a golf cart; lots of horse power and no steering capabilities. Today she proved it.

                          Alaskans pride ourselves on our frontier spirit, but this isn't what we meant. There is much work ahead to put the drama behind us and carry on to the betterment of our state.

                          That's just how "mavericky" we are.

                          • So we're not going to have Sarah Palin to kick around any more !?!

                            Damn!

                            She'll rack up millions in speaker's fees, she'll write a "tell all" book, she may even land a spot on Faux News.

                            But at the end of the day, she is what she is: a hillbilly from Alaska. A one-time sportscaster with a telegenic face, a nice pair of gams, and the intellectual acumen of a box of rocks who did amazing things with a teleprompter, a wink, and an upscale 5th Avenue wardrobe.

                            She should slink back to Wasilla, put her kid on the short bus to school every day, put in her miles on the treadmill, and count her blessings that no one will ever take her seriously again.

                            Sarah Palin has had her "15 minutes" in the spotlight. Like Susan Boyle, she was a one-trick pony who shriveled under the blaze of the media spotlight. History will judge her political career as an aberration, a case of "local gal strikes out in the big show."
