Random Friday bits

  • This Modern World notices a historical note that would rather change a discussion that recently took place in the political arena -- that is, what activists versus politicians can accomplish. See what MLK himself thought? crazy!!

  • If you're stranded at an airport by something other than weather (i.e., mechanical problems, personnel not present, etc.), you have recourse, even though the airlines may not tell you about it. Ask the agent to "240 you" to your destination!

  • Improv Everywhere scores another cool coup by having hundreds of people freeze in place in Grand Central Station. They came, they wandered, they froze for 5 minutes -- and it was plenty to attract the attention of passersby! -- they unfroze simultaneously and went their way (to some applause). Very spiff!
