Feeble Attempt At Posting Something...Cough, Cough

I've been under the weather.

Despite my decades-long attention to sanitation and hygiene, some scurrilous knave managed to pass along their respiratory infection.

While I whimper and whine about that, consider the following headlines (reading is about all I can get myself to do right now):

Too Much Information:

"Malaria No More Uses Humor to Show Malaria Is No Joke"
                                                                                 --NonprofitMarketingBlog, Oct. 19

"Do Women Sweat Differently Than Men?"
--New York Times website, Oct. 20

"Man Arrested for Sexually Assaulting Horse"
--Connecticut Post (Bridgeport), Oct. 19

If you doubt this drivel really exists, feel free to click on the links.

People who write this stuff need to get a real job.
