Quote du jour
: I prefer winter and fall, when you feel the bone structure of the landscape.
- Andrew Wyeth

Site du jour: Think you know what's been going on? The Pew Research Center has a political quiz that will test your knowledge.

Exercise du jour: Jog 3.5 miles. Or a reasonable fascimile thereof. No wildebeests.

Update du 10:01 pm: I would just like to record it here, for public record and for my own personal satisfaction, that IT'S NOT MY FAULT.

Of course i don't know what's going on. No one does really, but we aren't going for philosophy and metaphysics here, are we?

Bone structure needs fleshing out, at least to me.

Yikes, I only got 5 out of 12 correct on that research quiz, according to them.

Wow... how can they be so wrong and uninformed? ;-)

Shocking! You'd think a research center would have checked its facts better than that. What is the world coming to?

Ok, even though the test is skewed to a country in North America that has long since left the world stage of important countries, I had a go at it. Call me nostalgic.

Here's Your Score: You correctly answered 11 out of the 12 possible questions, which means you did better on the quiz than 98% of the general public.

I missed out on how much money from TARP had been paid back.

Yeah, I had trouble with that one too. And sorry about the slant... should've mentioned that.
