Links of the day
- Timeline detailing how Tom Ridge and Pittsburgh built two stadiums (Thanks Brian!).
- Interesting list of the 100 oldest .com domains.
- College Libraries: The Long Goodbye. There is no doubt libraries' roles and services are changing, but is this article a little extreme?
- This company has developed a plant that will detect landmines by changing colors. Awesome!
- "Why you should always brush your teeth." Good dental hygiene saved this soldier's life.
- Left-handers flourish in violent societies. Very interesting Nature article.
- 45% of Americans attend a religious service at least once a week, as opposed to only 28% for Saudi Arabia. Fascinating.
- Google Suggest Beta. Real time auto-completion of words that you type in. I find this annoying.
- Someone who truly deserves it won a $27 million lottery.
- Marlins meeting with Las Vegas officials about possible move. This is such a crock.
- U courts stadium donors. As far as I am concerned, the only name that makes sense for the stadium is "Pillsbury Stadium."
- McCain demands baseball confronts steroids. The Minnesota legislature is sure to follow suit.

Nice timeline regarding Tom Ridge and Pittsburgh stadium. I forwarded it to someone who will get it to the Gov's office. They have already seen the Ridge for Governor post and thought it was pretty funny.

That timeline was provided by Mr. Cheer or Die. A good piece of detective work on his part in finding it. I should have made that Tom Ridge post a post of its own. I think a lot of people got a kick out of it.
Good to hear you still have a connection in the Gov's office. Let me know if our efforts make any difference.

Was at a Christmas party tonight (Sat) and met a guy who knows Tom Ridge! He thought Tom would get a kick out of my post and your response and wants to get it forwarded to Tom. I will let you know if Tom starts shopping for property in Woodbury. Phil Krinke was also at this party but I restrained myself and did not tell him what I really think of his short-sighted posititions.
