Here's some other stuff I did this week:
Over at DadCentric, I evoked the ghost of Dan Cortese. Oh, wait, he's not dead.
Over at MamaPop, I helped spread the word about Stand Up To Cancer. Dan Cortese was involved.
Also this week, I spent too much time on Twitter, avoided throwing my shoe through the TV while watching the G.O.P. convention, pondered perpetual motion, got 50 pages into Steven Hall's The Raw Shark Texts and decided that it was the best book I've read this year, and awoke the political beast within me from its long and deep slumber.
