Wonders of the Internet

Interested in buying a house in a warmer clime?  If you click here, you can take a virtual tour of a nice little 1,400 square-foot number in Las Vegas that will only set you back about 300 large.  Your little Susie going off to college?  Click here, and you can take a virtual tour of the college of your choice, preferably one with a nerdy male college population wholly uninterested in pursuing nubile college freshwomen.  And speaking of warmer climes, I'll bet that somewhere during the depths of February you thought to yourself, "Damn, I might as well be living on the South Pole."  Well, now you have your chance:  click here, and you'll get a virtual tour of Antarctica. 

And if you click here, you can get a virtual tour of both the present and proposed lethal injection facility for the State of California.  I am not making this up.

Enjoy.

I'm on the road today (or yesterday, when I wrote this), so that'll be it for now.  Be back tomorrow.
