How could the dead rest? Their wooden coffins banged against the iron gates of the mortuary, the families shrieked with horror, the cellophane-wrapped corpses were piled high with blocks of ice so massive they could break the bones of the dead. And, as the ice melted in the heat outside the mortuary in streets glistening with mud, so the coffins began to fill with reliquefied blood, a crimson slush at the bottom. “Martyrs” all.

America's current combined fleet of civilian and military weather monitoring satellites are quickly nearing the end of their operational life spans. It's a big deal; these satellites provide accurate weather reports for a lot of major government agencies including NASA, NOAA, and the Department of Defense (not to mention our allies). But while the DoD scrambles to replace its aging Defense Meteorological Satellite Program and the Europeans are la...

Oh, by the way.  Some of the launch facilities NASA used for testing and manned flight; may have been turned over to Patrick AFB after they were finished with them.  I do not know for sure so don't take that as gospel. :)

Coffee helps me get oriented too (esp. Monday morn). Good find, interesting about the birds wired for N-S, like "Common Sense for Birds". I suppose this is for migratory fowl only? It's amazing how things are connected and not wasted.

As I recall my minister told me, the traditional RC or Anglican funeral mass liturgy is not intended for a lot of secular eulogies.

In Ireland for 'cans, cans' I meant beer, which can often be a feature of an Irish wake (not always in a bad way though, the Irish do celebrate the life of the dead).
Michael, sorry to hear about your Dad too. 
It has been said, and I can tell you from my experience growing up in Ireland (I can't find the exact quote), to get people to dislike one another you need nationalism but to get them to really hate each other, you need religion.
