Map of Middle East - 5000 years in 90 seconds

I usually don't pass this stuff along, but this one is pretty good Flash animation. I'll also recommend "George Lucas Presents: Singing In The Rain" which I can only find on salon.com's Video Dog section (requires subscription) but will probably wind up on the Chocolate Cake City site (click on the Videos tab).

While I was in DC for Thanksgiving, I had a chance to read my brother Joseph Romm's latest book, Hell and High Water: Global Warming--the Solution and the Politics--and What We Should Do which will be out in January. It will alter how you think about the immediacy of inaction on climate change. Reserve your copy now!
Songs from High School Graduation #1: 1972
What the heck. I'll do it, mostly because I can legitimately cheat. What follows is The Greatest Hits of 1972 as compiled by Pop Culture Madness. I'm in the Class of 1973, but graduated a semester early (to take college classes and play Duplicate Bridge in my father's Bridge Club). While there are some good songs from '73, I like the '72 list better, so will use it for this particular Useless Exercise. I'll bold the songs I liked then and strikethrough those I didn't like. For the most part, my tastes haven't changed much. For that matter, I rarely listened to the radio and I came to know most of these songs well after their major airplay. Comments in [brackets]. I'm too lazy to alter the format everyone's using, but for the record: I dislike not being able to mark songs I simply don't remember -- which is most of them. Oh well. I'm sure I've heard all these songs, but if they don't play in my ear as I'm going through the list, they're SOL.
