* One of the snails in my fish tank died yesterday. Poor little guy. Also, my fish isn't looking too hot. I wonder what's going on in that tank. Maybe something is making them all sick? The other snail seems to be doing fine though.

* So, Amazon and MacMillan got into a tiff, and Amazon decided to pull all MacMillan books. Man...if I were an author affected by this, I would be pissed. Then again, that's probably why Amazon did it, to get the authors to put pressure on MacMillan.

* The city council of my town is debating opening city council sessions with prayer. Time for another strongly worded letter. I'm thinking something along the lines of we didn't elect you to pray in office and do that on your own time. Also, my block as been trying to get sidewalks for years because cars often take the corner too fast and come barreling down our street. One of my neighbor's kids narrowly avoided being hit last summer. Once again, we petitioned the city for sidewalks, and once again, they turned it down saying that they have no money. I guess we'll have better luck praying for 'em...

* Important: A personal friend of mine is about to lose her health insurance if she can't make her COBRA payment. She goes by [livejournal.com profile] ordinary on LJ and gookygox on Twitter. This would be disastrous because, several years ago, she developed a lung condition-- growths on the lining of her lungs-- that is so rare that even the Mayo Clinic couldn't figure out what was going on. She has to have nerve blocks done on a regular basis in order to be able to function. (I took her to the hospital to have one of these nerve blocks done last January). She is taking donations right now in the hopes that she will be able to raise enough money to cover the cost of her COBRA. You can donate here. If you don't have any money to donate, re-posting this in your journals to boost the signal would also be helpful.
