Preach it, brother! - "I don't do much of anything that elicits the response: 'I never saw

Unique bird of the day: Saw a crow pulling a part a small hawk on top of a rusted metal oil pump/rig in Long Beach today. Was wondering if the hawk was dead or alive when the crow got it? Due to driving by at 45 mph, did not take a photo.

just can't be helped."
Ben Brown on why he quit Facebook: "I don’t want the Internet to be the bastard child of basic cable and

services that are crafted with me and people like me in mind." (Ms. Jen says - Preach it, brother!)
