Post-vacation burn-out post

So I'm back home from a brief vacation visiting the fam in Connecticut. Now I know why New Jersey gets such a bad rap. It's not because of the Sopranos or the toxic's because of the twin plagues known as the Garden State Parkway and the New Jersey Turnpike. 'Nuff said.

Absent the time, energy or inclination to post anything of substance, I'll make some comments on some current events...

VT families to meet with Gov. Kaine next weekend
It seems some of the families of the Virginia Tech shooting victims are demanding representation on the panel overseeing the investigation. Pardon my crass insensitivity, but how many other surviving family members of violent crime supervise the investigations into the death of their loved one?

Two-year-old 'Matilda' becomes youngest ever girl in Mensa
Sounds about right...most "geniuses" I've met have the sense of a two-year-old.

Video: Immigration lawyers discuss ways to disqualify US workers; find non-US workers
The video has to be seen to be believed. In it, as the heading implies, attorneys and HR specialists discuss how they circumvent fair labor practices to ensure no US citizens are selected for a vacant job so that they may be given to immigrants. Positively vile.
