Prominent Global-Warming Skeptic Becomes Believer After 2-Year Study

I doubt this will change many people's opinion, but it is interesting because it involves processing actual data.  When it comes to movies, music, politics and things of that nature I generally don't get too emotional about people's opinion as everyone has a right to their own.

Deer Antler Causes Cathy Kates’ Flat Tire

It's 8p.  We're driving to Duluth from the Taste of Home Cooking Show at Black Bear Casino Resort.  Homie, my husband is behind me in the truck, because we drove separate.  Suddenly, I see the lights of  the SUV a short distance in front of me swerve uncontrollably and pull off to the side.  I slow down in time to see a huge deer down in the passing lane writhing in pain (poor honey).  I knew I wouldn't have time to call Homie on the cell, so I put my flashers on and hit the brakes so he'd know something was going on and to slow down.  Just as he was on the side of the deer, a mini-van blows past him in the passing lane and nails the deer at 75mph!
