Various Distractions

With work inconveniently being, well, a lot of work, I haven't been blogging. But a meeting this afternoon got cancelled. So here are a bunch of distractions that I've been slowly accumulating for the last few weeks but haven't had the chance to blog.

Columbia, Maryland local Aaron McGruder has decided that the Boondocks comic strip will most likely not return to the funny pages.
