Some Bits from Parts of Today's WashPost

I got about halfway through the paper waiting for the doctor and noted these items:

Allan Sloan goes into detail about Bush's proposed health insurance changes and how "you discover a plan embedded in them that would effectively trim future Social Security retirement benefits for some people, while reducing their current Social Security tax payments to help pay for health insurance." Some low-income folks could see their retirement money cut in half.

Google has decided to smother Google bombs.

An article in Business was about how more American businesses are selling to other countries now, and one exec said "It would be wonderful if all we had to do to survive was sell to Americans, but the earth is round." Uhhuh. And what does that have to do with export?

Hmmm, I notice that there's nobody on my flist with a February birthday. That's odd.
