We're in Cologne visiting with friends.  Last night on the way to dinner, we walked by a felt store and saw this.  Is it just me, or are the yellow felt stars of David grossly inappropriate?

A tree that grows 40 different kinds of fruit!!
Maybe one tree shouldn’t grow 40 types of fruit. But contemporary artist Sam Van Aken has done it anyway, practicing extreme hybridization while preserving rare varietals of stone fruit.

Someone I know tried to cancel service but was disconnected every time he navigated to that item on the telephone menu system.  In person cancellations are not available. Comcast makes it insanely difficult and time-consuming to cancel service.  I would argue that its practices are, at best, shady.  I would love to see +Lisa Madigan's office investigate.
When AOL executive and Comcast customer Ryan Block recently tried to cancel his internet service, he ended up in a near-yelling match with a customer service representative who spent 18 minutes...
