Odin's Day

26 days.

State of the 'Song
A week of rain makes a 'song achy. Just sayin'.

The ongoing purge
16 bags, 4 boxes, and a wooden rack/plastic bin set are downstairs awaiting charity pickup! The reading room has never been cleaner. (Note: reading room is still not clean.) I drafted Elayna into helping with The Haulening. Next up, we go through our books and pull stuff for library donation!

This is all-the-issues-hit-at-once time. One ambushed me last night and continued through this morning; an unrelated one continues to creep in its steady pace day by day, and I foresee a Meeting about that one. *eyes the Issues* And since the issues are sucking up huge chunks of time, I've no time to write, which is how I process. This makes for a cranky me.

Link Soup
* Psychology Today posted a terrible article (since removed) entitled "Why Are Black Women Less Physically Attractive Than Other Women?” WHAT THE WHAT. Here's a screencap. karnythia is but one of the people with a great post on the topic.
* Flashpoint is actually doing some interesting things.
* A thousand times this.
* Texas close to banning TSA searches, TSA invents desperate new constitutional interpretations.

Daily Science
In basic research with far-reaching impact, cell biologists Wei-Lih Lee and Steven Markus report in an article released today in Developmental Cell, with videos, that they have solved one of the fundamental questions in stem cell division: How dynein, the cell’s two-part, nano-scale "mitotic motor," positions itself to direct the dividing process.

Work, please writing today PLEASE, and Elayna's spring concert tonight.
