Reports of an early-morning tourist mauling in Ann Arbor, MI. Police deny claims it's the dreaded Chewpurrcabra.

We are out of cat food because the dog keeps eating it, but whenever I move the cat food bowl to someplace the dog can’t get to, the cats start running in figure-8′s around my legs, going “Mreer? Mraw–Mrr–MrrrEW!!?!?” These creatures are descended from wild animals. They may not be able to hunt anymore, but I’m basically okay with them having to do an infinitesimal amount of work to get their dinner. They’re not, however....

Fascinating piece from my good friend Violet Blue. I am currently reading Masha Gessen's somewhat terrifying Putin biography right now, so stuff like this seems particularly ominous. http://www.zdnet.com/wcit-12-leak-shows-russia-china-others-seek-to-define-government-controlled-internet-7000008509/

Sacramento peeps: I’m having a garage sale tomorrow. I don’t have a garage, nor do I really have a yard, so it’s basically a driveway sale. Come by and pick up some books fer cheap. There’ll be a whole lot of books I’ve been in over the years.

"What helped me to truly love learning was (and is) being able to switch between fiction books, nonfiction books, recorded audio lectures, video lectures, audiobooks, and documentary video. I have ADHD, you see, and I don't know if that's why, but I lose interest in a single given format very quickly, often without losing interest in a single topic. E-books also made a huge difference...because I tend not to lose them."
