Intelligence, terrorism, giraffes and Olympians.

-----A student with Down Syndrome has been named to the National Honor Society. :-)

-----Landing gear that is believed to be from one of the jets that crashed on 9/11 has been found. I wonder if commentators will see some symbolic significance in where it was found at.
-----There are now 100 prisoners on hunger strike at Guantanamo. Apparently, part of what they are protesting is the conditions there.

-----Strange tidbit...learned via Giraffe (as in the restaurant):
Giraffes can clean their ears with their own tongues.

-----Apparently, San Diego and Tijuana...TIJUANA, of all places...have made a joint proposal to host the 2024 Olympics.
~ ~ ~ Does Tijuana have plans to clean up its reputation (and actual way of being)?
~ ~ ~ What will the "immigration" situation be like by then?
~ ~ ~ This is not the only recent pair-up between San Diego and Tijuana. Apparently they are becoming a "global drone hub."

One of the most dangerous highways between Tijuana and Mexicali.
It is called "the Rumorosa" due to the sound of the wind in the cliffs.
Hundreds of accidents occur here each year.

I'm really enjoying the theme/design of your site. Do you ever run into any web browser compatibility issues? A handful of my blog readers have complained about my website not operating correctly in Explorer but looks great in Opera. Do you have any ideas to help fix this problem?
