Out of the Blue

It's just a few days until the end of March, and it better get warmer pretty quickly if it's going to "go out like a lamb," as it's supposed to. We had a couple of beautiful days before the beginning of spring, but I think for the most part the Groundhog Day predictions of an early spring were not accurate. It's enough to shake one's faith in woodchuck weathermen.

Today is the 32nd anniversary of the Three Mile Island accident, an unsettling coincidence as bad news continues to come out of the crippled reactors in Japan.

R.I.P.: Paul Baran, Internet and packet switching pioneer, is mourned.

Unsettling Links: Thanks Ant and Mike Martinez and Acleacius.
Play: Red Dragon Rampage.
Super Fighters Rampage.
Loki.
Links: 'Camelot' vs. 'Game of Thrones' vs. 'Borgias'.
Images: Twilight Goes Beyond Where Even Trekkies Will.
Media: Gadgets.
The Least Equipped. Thanks Boing Boing.
Firemen dig 5-foot-deep trench to free dog from rabbit hole.
The Funnies: Dilbert.
Follow-up: Amy Adams to play Lois Lane in 'Superman'.

End of March: All I can think about is the old saying "April showers bring May flowers." Ugh. So it's April that's supposed to be the rainy month?
