[links] Link salad has a window seat over America

A reader reacts to Mainspring Powell's | Amazon thb | Barnes & Noble | Borders | Audible ] — Definitely a mixed review.

Super-slow-motion pictures show soap bubble bursting in stunning detail — (Thanks to danjite.)

Erupting Volcano Anak Krakatau — Wow,

More on the Obama-Tavare photographThe Edge of the American West with a detailed takedown of a typical conservative "outrage". Hint: intellectual dishonesty, as usual with conservatives, lies at the heart. I think they call it "principle" when they cling to a belief in the face of facts.

?otD: Aisle or window?

[personal] Open dinner in San Francisco on July 20th

I'll be in San Francisco next week for some more medical appointments in connection with my cancer. Since I'm finding it logistically impossible to schedule time with people, I thought I'd throw one of my group dinners.

On Monday 7/20 at 6pm, calendula_witch and I will be at Kezar Bar & Grill, at the corner of Cole and Carl in Cole Valley. Exact address:

900 Cole St
San Francisco, CA 94117-4316
(415) 681-7678

This is just off the N-Judah street car line, among other things.

This is an open dinner. That means if you're reading this, you're welcome to come, whether we're old friends, nodding acquaintances or total strangers. If you think you'll be there, please let us know. That way we can warn the restaurant.
