Daily Science
A unique combination of telescopes allowed astronomers to simultaneously observe the radio wavelength light from six different pulsars across wavelengths from only 3.5 centimetres up to 7 metres - a difference-factor of 200, providing an unprecedented view of how radio pulsars shine.

You. YOU?! don't celebrate The Day of the Rose and the Book? Really? I'm a little stunned, it seems right up your alley.

The Day of the Rose and the Book? A day where it is traditional to give a rose and a book to your loved ones?

Old Spanish tradition linked to St. George's Day and the fact it is Cervantes and Shakespeares' death day? So popular it is now the International Day of the Book?

The Doonesbury thread is an important one, and hopefully we'll see more coverage of PTSD in re: command rape.

I though his handling of BD's injury was well done ... mind you, I was reading it while I was in Iraq ...
