ISN'T AN OUTRAGE THAT THE PEOPLE OF [your nation here] SPEND MORE MONEY ON [something that clearly brings satisfaction to them]!

A new study focused on the interior of Saturn's icy moon Mimas suggests its cratered surface hides one of two intriguing possibilities: Either the moon's frozen core is shaped something like a football, or the satellite contains a liquid water ocean.

Statement by Wasai Rahimi in response to Email from Kitchener Mayoral Candidate Dan Glenn-Graham
On October 14th I received an email from Mayoral Candidate Dan Glenn-Graham asking me to step aside and endorse my opponent Dan Graham. I am both hurt and disappointed that Mr. Glenn-Graham would attempt to interfere and manipulate the race for Ward 2 councillor. I had a great deal of respect for Mr. Glenn-Graham and was a strong supporter of his campaign for Mayor.

Which will take me 14 days because of course I still have the Heinlein reviews to post.

It's in honour of Cuban missile crisis, which to be honest I don't really remember because I was very young at the time. As confrontations between the US and SU that could have led to a nuclear go, it was nowhere near as risky as stuff like Able Archer or the 1983 Soviet nuclear false alarm incident because the nuclear arsenals were much smaller then (and strongly favoured the US) but it definitely would been bad for Europe. I was living in London, somewhere near where the region dominated by collapsing buildings due to a 1 MT strike gives way to third degree burns.
