Happy Friday! And many thanks to those who entered the book giveaway contest, either on Steampunk Empire or Steampunk Librarian. So far our entries have suggested the temporary resurrection of Tesla, da Vinci, Jesus, Maury Chaykin, and zombies. 

From Cassandra, politics division:   Forbes calculates the ten richest American presidents (Andrew Jackson?!?); the "pink sari" gangs of India gain momentum; and a spirited debate takes place over the political leanings of the Jedi.

From Bunny: author Anne Rice gave up vampires for Christianity, and is now giving up Christianity because she says it's a hypocritical establishment. (She makes some good points.) No word yet on whether she'll return to writing about vampires.

From Cassandra, science division: Hydrotherapy works for animals, including cats! Also, scientists are studying a large crater in Egypt thought to be caused by a meteor a few thousand years ago.

From Julie:  the lost (and now found) photos of Ansel Adams.

Have a spiffy weekend, everyone!

RE: Anne Rice

I really want to read that article but it directs me to the Jedi. Do they have the final word? (teehee)
