im sure northeasterners mock us for feeling cold with 45 degree temperatures, but it was a little chilly this morning only because it had been in the mid-60’s last week. here’s a couple links to help warm your computer up this morning to reach the manufacturer SOT* (suggested operating temperature):
-> vallejo native cc sabathia signed a $23,000,000/yr contract to pitch for the ny yankees this off-season. the median us salary in 2008 was $61,500/yr. at that income, you have to work 373 years to earn what cc makes in one year. here’s the espn calculator to help make sense of it all [espn.com]
-> amidst all the inauguration hubbub last week, george bush issued a farewell letter to the american public [the onion]
-> i’m going to make this ‘bacon loaf’ at the next potluck-style gathering that i go to [holy taco]
-> a whistleblower said that the nsa pretty much spies on everyone, especially reporters. the eff has started a ssd (surveillance self-defense project) to help educate the public on how to prevent being a victim of the nsa’s tactics [eff]
*SOT is a made-up term. lame…i know.
