This May blitz is among the most brutal I’ve experienced. It’s not getting me down, but it is getting me behind. I fear full-scale blogging won’t resume until Memorial Day weekend. I’m sure you understand.

A few of you are sending me potential story leads. I really appreciate that. I will run them. I might not get to them as timely as I’d like, but I will run them.

I’ve run across some great “Today I Learned” entries at Reddit lately. Herewith, a few of my recent favorites:

Aldous Huxley author of “Brave New World”, was so influenced by the power of LSD that he requested his wife to inject him 100 µg of LSD on his death bed.

The difference in the land area of the United States and China differ by 1.8%.

Australian Bill Morgan was declared dead for 14 minutes and lived unscathed. To celebrate his survival, he bought a scratch card & won a $27k car. The news asked him to re-enact the scratch card moment so he bought another card & won a $250k jackpot.

The Canadian Parliament is prepared for a zombie apocalypse.
