This really, really sucks. But I hope you carpe the heck out of every damn diem from here -- hope there's a lot of happiness and good adventures still in store.

There's nothing wrong with being a copy editor: We're well-educated and highly skilled members of the newsroom staff. The important thing is that all copy editors be compensated fairly regardless of gender, and all reporters, management, etc., as well.

Here's something I'd like to know: Why is the newer bridge in need of replacement, when the older bridge carrying traffic into the mall isn't?

Or you could give some to your garden-less friends. :) Every year, I get jealous of the people who complain of having a glut of veggies from their garden, 'cause I don't have a yard, so I can't have a garden, and I would totally eat up some of that bounty. At times like this, I think there should be a give-a-veggie-take-a-veggie bin somewhere, so people could dispose of their extras and maybe pick up something they'll use in return.

All pets should really be kept in your home or at least on your property, if for no other reason than that if your neighbors wanted to be around a dog/cat/etc., they'd get their own.

That said, it's definitely much safer for cats to be kept indoors -- it keeps them from being exposed to fleas, diseases and dangers (including passing cars).

From: Some experts say cats shouldn't be allowed outside. What do you think?

I think WOMAD was my first inside concert. My first lawn show was Michael Bolton (hey, I was very young and the tickets were cheap -- it was something to do). It rained, and I got very, very muddy. I've avoided the lawn ever since.

Very sorry to hear this. :( Though at least it sounds like it's the best possible kind of this terrible news, so that's perhaps a teeny-tiny silver lining.

Do we get to go this time? That's what I'm wondering... the last two times he came were closed visits, not public events.

We don't already have a state vegetable? I'm surprised. We have a state everything else, it seems.
