Another lost celebrity, other stuff, and a survey...

It seems that everybody is dying these days. A sad farewell to Wendie Jo Sperber. You probably remember her best from Bosom Buddies. She succumbed to breast cancer after an 8 year struggle.

Have you tried Google Earth? It's pretty damn cool, if not kind of scary. I tried looking at places like Area 51, Guantanamo Bay, and some spots in the Middle East and it's obvious that they've been blocked out. Some areas are a little more detailed than others. The satellite photos are a little old. Our garden isn't done yet and there's a red car in the backyard (whose?). Freakin' cool/creepy nonetheless. Try your own address and see what happens...

Another great article from Jack Lessenberry in this weeks Metro Times about how the U.S. has knowingly illegally screwed Canada out of $4 billion. Apparently we don't care to follow the NAFTA rules...

Rick Springfield is going to return to General Hospital to reprise his role as Dr. Drake (to introduce his son as a new character).

Here's a survey that I stole from Julie.
