Slow blogging

If you've felt particularly ignorant lately I can explain it - I haven't been blogging much.

OTOH I've had crunch time for a project while I'm trying to move back to Chicago (my nominal job location) after a three month stay in Baltimore. And if I weren't such a slacker I'd be jamming more stuff into or atop my SUV for the trip right now. The weather forecast looks good, so it should be smooth sailing.

Alright, enough - it's off to Chicago...

Naming a planet

Dean Esmay's gang has this crazy idea that there might be a rational basis for naming a new planet.

More Greek and Roman names? Ha! Forget about it, you would-be cultural imperialist. That planet must be named something Culturally Inclusive, reflecting the Common Heritage of Mankind.

As for me, I propose "Teapot".
