Best of my bloglines for today

alternative boondoggles: an incredibly depressing list of alternative projects that could have been undertaken for the cost of the war in Iraq. For example: a manned Mars expedition! cut carbon emissions! Build first-world grade housing in shiny new cities for 600 million Chinese peasants! Sigh.

a cool little diagram showing common household toxins, and the plants that can help eliminate their effects.

The Emma Spaulding Bryant Letters: A series of letters written by a woman in 1873 to her husband. These are fascinating. So vague and mysterious! And full of puzzling medical terminology!

Also in the "depressing, yet entertaining" category: not always right, a collection of quotations from stupid customers, a la overheard in the office.
