[links] Link salad tax prep crouton

Kat Beyer with another Zoli story on Daily Cabal — This one with zeppelins! And yurts!

Shorpy with a story that's somewhat remarkable, even though the photo is mostly just a little weird — Read the descriptive text.

Crap-based medicine — Hahahaha.

Obama and orange juice — Yep. Definitely a liberal media at work. Obama's bowling abilities and beverage preferences are clearly a topic of liberal bias. Or to put it in fewer words: WTF?

[personal] ...and taxes

One of life's two inevitabilities has been on me like white on rice this past week. This weekend. Today. Right now.

Hint: Reports of my death have been greatly exaggerated.

Expect continued light blogging.

ETA: In answer to a couple of very kind emails, I'm just moaning about tax prep. Nothing serious (or even bad).

[tech] Free stuff

Anyone in the Portland area want a working but slightly fussy Coby DVD player?

Low end model, very compact, no special features.
