Today is Friday, and that means links from others! Thanks, everyone.

From Bunny: Russia is dealing with smelly orange snow (their words).

From Satori: "Now that they are in a very unpopular war and need more people, top military officials want to o.k. gay/lesbian troops."

From Zazoo: the Eiffel Tower goes dark! Oh, but only for five minutes. Also from Zazoo: the Club Creatures Friday DJ night is publicized now for all you locals. Come out and dance! We're celebrating Satori's birthday tonight!

From Cassandra: wow, being a ghost worker is the way to go! Also from Cassandra: gender equity bills are making a comeback, hooray.

From my mom, via Brendan: more on Molly Ivins.

This one's for Jeff: the Pope Benedict quote generator!

And lastly, for all you children of the '80s: a video that re-enacts the Karate Kid with actual cameos by the actors. Who knew William Zabka had such a good sense of humor?

Have a spiffy weekend, everyone! See you Monday.

I'm glad to see that the military is facing reality, regarding gays. It's way past due.

I gotta say, though, it's a little weak of Gen. Shalikashvili to be going all public with his change of heart, now that he's retired. It's easy for him to say "the military should do this," when he's not going to have to be the one listening to the complaining from all of the mid-level homophobes.

Any progress is good, I suppose, but the time for him to have adopted his attitude of "it's not a problem" was when he was ordered to by President Clinton. Instead, he put up a fuss, knowing that Clinton had no cred with the military, and forced that stupid "don't ask don't tell" compromise.

Pardon my irritation. We now return you to your pleasant Friday afternoon.

I have always wondered what ever happened to that orange drink they served us in elementary school?!?!?!

Have fun this weekend, birthday Satori, spinnin' that DJ wheel!

Oh yeah, happy belated b-day, Dancin' Machine! (I've been out the loop for about a month)
