I had great hopes of posting something meaningful about the current goings-on in the Middle East, but my brain has melted and I cannot. I don't think I have ever been so hot in all my life. Today it is supposed to be about 104 in NYC...with a heat index of 1005 (that's not a typo). And the place where I work is a lovely historic building...where I work in the attic, with only a window unit, and the power keeps going out. I might just burst into flames....for real.
And just so this post isn't entirely self-serving, here's an interesting article to read.
