First, just a heads-up: Mom's OK and back from the hospital. Turns out she had some polyps (thanks to a colonoscopy), biopsy results pending. Mom's advice: "If your poop is black and you're not taking Pepto Bismol, see a doctor."
Next, in weirdly related news, I took second prize in the Polite Dissent contest. Happy happy joy joy!
Finally, you may have heard - Enterprise was canceled. Expect a post on that - and a meme - within the next day or so.
