Humbled and amazed

Here's a recap of stuff going on.
Malala Yousafzai did an interview with John Stewart of the Daily Show. This is the girl who was shot by the Taliban for going to school and speaking out for women's rights. She's the youngest person to be nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize. I think she's a shoo-in.
There are thousand of causes to support. If any cause is worthy of support, it is this one. In taking a page from John Kennedy, I tend to think globally and act locally. Here's a link to Malala's page. Think of it as fighting evil in the world. You'll feel better about yourself, I promise.

Scott Carpenter, one of the Mercury 7 astronauts passed away today. Let's all take a moment to remember his heroism and accomplishments.

Even with the government shutdown, science rolls on! The Juno spacecraft did a slingshot around Earth and is bang on target for Jupiter. 

And since we're on the subject of the shutdown... Here's a nifty little piece about congressional approval rating.
Really guys, 5%? I thought they shoot people when it gets that low. Do I need to come over there and start knocking some heads? 
If things keep going the way their going, people are going to get hurt. I predict 535 casualties.
Hey Senator Headupyourass, get back to work.
