Random Commuter Observation

We've had about a week of near perfect weather here in Dee Cee, with low humidity and high temperatures around 80. Far nicer than what one would expect for the second week of July 'round here.

Perhaps it was this thought that made NPR's presumptuous use of the line "the ravages of global warming" in one of its nooz updates this morning particularly annoying to me. What ravages? I thought the meme was that Dooooooom is now just around the corner, not that most of Micronesia has already disappeared beneath the waves and the sands of the Sahara have been welded into one giant sheet of glass.

(Yes, yes, I know. Weather and climate aren't the same thing. Blah, blah.)
