Chocolate-Covered Insects Day? No thanks!

Usual Suspect insists that today is National Chocolate-Covered Insects Day. You're free to celebrate this one entirely on your own -- we will not partake.

Today has also been designated national lower case day. We wondered why. Our crack research staff discovered, sure enough, that today is the anniversary of the birth of American poet e.e. cummings (1894-1962) and has nothing whatsoever to do with the way kids text these days.

October 14 is also Be Bald and Be Free Day. The makers of Rogaine and Propecia would like you to forget that.

And since today is a Sunday, it's appropriate to note that today is Clergy Appreciation Day.

Image obtained from the Audobon Nature Institute site. If you're in New Orleans today, you can click on the preceding link and get information on how you can chow down on your own chocolate covered bugs. Indeed, in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the Institute invites visitors today "to dip their edible insect in pink chocolate in support of the many families affected by the disease."

We won't see you there.

I won't be able to thank you fully for the articles on your web-site. I know you'd put a lot of time and energy into all of them and hope you know how much I appreciate it. I hope I could do the same for someone else sometime.
