news, explosions in India

sleigh has good comments about how the explosions that killed almost 200 people in India didn't make a dent in U.S. News yesterday. I'd heard about it because I mostly get my news from you folks (thanks, novapsyche).

Every so often I shudder to think of the cultural and informational bubble most of America seems to reside within.

But some things are still good. I was over at my mom's on Sunday, and Simpsons was on TV, and I hadn't seen that episode before, and it was good, and it made my mom smile (she had a hystorectomy on Friday and was looking kind of fragile), so that was good.

medical transcriptionists?

If any of y'all have training and are qualified to do medical transcription, I know someone who is hiring... (so far as I know from my aunt, who used to do that, it's actually a pretty steady demand field, but the company Soartech uses to do our transcription is looking for people, so I thought I'd mention...)
