These pumpkin carvings are brilliant. All were done by NYC native Ray Villafane. Enjoy

I'm up to 120 linguists and fellow travellers in my personal Circle℠, but the one I see before me still has only 89. There must not be an automatic update; that figures, for the reason Eytan suggested. No doubt there'll be a Circle℠ Management℠ app out soon.

I have just become a grandfather. My daughter Sasha delivered a baby boy weighing 9 lb 10 oz (about 1 SD above mean), at 1 PM EST today, at her home in Ann Arbor. Like his uncle Ian -- born on Nov 20, 1976 --the baby was born while Michigan was defeating Ohio State. Mother and baby doing fine, resting at home.

NPR is denying it had anything to do with causing her dismissal; it was WDAV, they say.

Actually, I think it's incredibly cool to see the threads dissipate until the first one ground itself and sends the return bolt back up. Shows just how electricity works.
