Glow-in-the-dark cat

Since I was in a (work-related) class all day yesterday (and will be, again, today), I didn't get my normal dose of news junkie browsing in, which is something I tend to do while having innumerable phone conversations at work. So it wasn't until later in the day that: 1) I did the Hypersudoko from the International Herald Tribune (which is thoroughly addictive, by the way) and 2) I read that the Koreans have genetically modified three kittens so they fluoresce red under ultraviolet light.

It seems to me that this will also mess with fundamental cat behavior. Poor kitties can't hide in the dark in the closet or under the bed.

Some rich person will, inevitably, now want the feline equivalent of a black-light poster.

The Steroids List

So the Mitchell report is out and names various MLB players accused of using steroids and/or HGH.

Names on the list include Roger Clemens who I already once named as the most evil person in the universe, since he abandoned the forces of good to defect to The Source of All Evil in the Universe and Eric Gagne, who drugs obviously didn't help (and who I am glad is off to Milwaukee for the next season). Actually, there are a lot of people on the list who drugs didn't seem to help.

Names not on the list include Big Papi, Manny Ramirez, Mike Lowell, Jason Varitek, Jonathan Papelbon, ... well, you get my drift. Gloat!
