Subterranean with a story and interview of me

My Iron Springs report [ jlake.com | LiveJournal ] — With bonus crappy bald eagle photo! (The bird was too far away for my little camera to do a decent job.)

Curiosities of Biological Nomenclature — A very interesting, funny site, if you’re either a biology geek or a language geek.

Martian soil ‘could support life’ — “Martian soil appears to contain sufficient nutrients to support life - or, at least, asparagus - Nasa scientists believe.” Mmm. Space asparagus.

North Pole could be ice-free this summer, scientists say — Polar ice cap threatens to join liberal global warming hoax. Senator Inhofe, get Rush Limbaugh to Ice Station Zebra, stat!

Lee Iacocca: “Where have all the leaders gone?” — A rant about politics, business and the current state of America, which I mostly agree with.
