Overdue things you may have missed

I meant to run through these things over the weekend, but that ended up being too busy and fun-filled, and before I knew it, it was Monday! Ack!

• Are there cancer vaccines on the horizon?

• If you're into gymnasts or stunts, you'll dig this guy.

Why are so few Christians vegetarian?

• Oh, dear Dog, Tennessee has distinguished itself yet again. I've been living here for almost 20 years, and I'm still waiting for us to get a bit of national press for something that isn't humiliating...

• Here's a no-brainer: kids need to move around more. In other breaking news, crunchberries are not really fruit.

Wikimedia Commons Picture of the Year results!

• I don't know if I can go through life without experiencing a Kogi Taco.

A lovely collection of iconic portraits.

Bill O'Reilly: ignoramus or liar?

Buy beer, not porn.

• Awww. A rat and his cat!

And finally, what looks like the Topic of the Week, health care. Here are a few links, and then come commentary from Bill Maher:

• Wow. In today's America, Sixty percent of bankruptcies are due to medical bills. That is a staggering number. Is there still anyone left out there who doesn't believe we need health care reform, and fast?

• Here's another sobering tidbit: People are now not filling prescriptions to save money.

What Maher said! Somewhere, somehow America made a wrong turn and started worshipping its own almighty dollar, and I think Maher nailed the why of it (as well as the dire results).

(Elsewhere, did you notice that the portrait of Stalin made him look a bit like Ronald Reagan? Ewww...)
