Counting Down

The countdown has begun on the last 100 days before the next robotic laboratory will attempt to land on Mars. Known as Curiosity, the Mars Science Laboratory is gaining on Mars with each day for its rendezvous with our red planetary neighbor in August.

Did I read that right?  I remember being surprised to learn that Exxon said that a carbon tax would be better than a cap-and-trade system.

Many feel the iconic koala should have been listed as an endangered species across the entire continent.
