I’m putting the finishing touches on my article for the Journal of Electronic Resources in Medical Libraries’ eJournal Forum and the deadline is Monday, which means that before then I need to actually finish it, then send my proof to the other co-authors to see what needs fixing, and then over the weekend finish the second draft. (Wish me luck!) That done, I might actually post here two (even–dare I say it? three) times a week.
While that’s going on, if you care about the possibilities of practical space travel for those of us without $20 million to spend on a ticket to the stars, take a look at Alan Boyle’s Cosmic Blog.
And when you’re done with that, you can take a look at this. This bit was written by Chip Ward, who is the assistant director of Salt Lake City’s public library system on the subject of the Pentagon’s intention to set off what might be the biggest fertilizer bomb in history as a faux nuclear test in an area that has seen continual nuclear testing since the 1950s. I don’t understand the logic behind the government’s plans to do much (that goes double, nay, triple for the Pentagon) but the article is worth a read.
If, on the other hand, you want a proper window into anything the Pentagon has in mind, do a fast Google search for anything written in the past few years by Karen Kwitakowski, a retired Air Force Colonel who use to work there, and now writes for Military Week.
