Well Worth The Click

Go to Elayne’s place and check out Harry Shearer’s music video, Waterboarding USA.

Harry is probably the best known unknown person you don’t know you know and wouldn’t recognize on the street. If you click on his name and look at his Wikipedia entry, you will understand what I mean.

Clocks Change – Fall Back

Remember, at 2AM the clocks reset to 1AM, so you get an extra hour of sleep, or an extra hour of work if you’re on the graveyard shift.

Half of my clocks have already shifted, so the world around here has been dual time-zoned for the last week.

Nice FDA Regulation

The Associated Press reports: Million pounds of beef recalled

MINNEAPOLIS, Minnesota (AP) — The giant agribusiness company Cargill Inc. said Saturday it is recalling more than 1 million pounds of ground beef that may be contaminated with E. coli bacteria.

The ground beef was produced October 8-11 at Cargill Meat Solutions’ plant in Wyalusing, Pennsylvania and distributed to retailers.

Affected retailers include Giant, Shop Rite, Stop & Shop, Wegmans and Weis in Connecticut, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Virginia.

Cargill learned the meat may be contaminated after the Agriculture Department found a problem with a sample of the beef produced on October 8, the company said. The bacterium is E. coli O157:H7.

Recalling tainted hamburger is becoming a once a month drill at Cargill. Too bad the laws that have been in place for the last century don’t seem to get enforced anymore.
