Twitter has rolled out a bunch of interactive features to mark Ramadan. The Supremes reject the buffer zone outside abortion clinics. The Huntsville City Council suffers from collywobbles.


  1. ….in other news, the committee on where to site the moon was formed, and included a Romulan (so the committee has the needed phase teleportation technology), along with an Arcturian, a Vegan (who’ll eat anything) and a Sirian (who proceeded to explain she has nothing to do with Assad, in fact, and has never met her or him). They viewed a number of sites for the siting of the moon, and voted to delay the siting until the sighting for Ramadan was complete.

      Seriously though – great column, thanks for the updates, and I’ve enjoyed reading it.
