Sorry folks, but blogging is going to be spotty for the next few days. I've got to move to Toronto on Sunday, and while I'm pretty much ready, there's also my job and family obligations - when you move away, all of the sudden your mother thinks she's never gonna see you again. Can't promise lots of high-quality blogging.
In lieu of that, some quick hits:
-Abe Lincoln's preferred weapon: Broadswords. Seriously. (Via August Pollak.)
-Holographic solar concentrators? Whatever works!
-Jane Jacobs, RIP.
-The mid-terms are looking good. November, here we come!
