bolgia nine—the sowers of discord

My octogenarian landlord has skipped town without turning off the furnace, so my radiator is still going full blast despite the fact that we're having record highs around here. It's 85 degrees in my apartment with the AC and fan cranked to the maximum, and there's not a damn thing I can do about it, other than not wearing clothes. It's hard to drink coffee.

Thanks to Justin for helping this site maintain its position as the weblog community's leader in hermaphrodite frog news.

The Environmental Protection Agency permits up to 3 parts per billion of atrazine in drinking water. But Hayes' team found it affected frogs at doses as small as 0.1 part per billion...

Asked if atrazine might also be a threat to people at low levels, Hayes said he did not know, adding that, unlike frogs, "we're not in the water all the time. I'm not saying it's safe for humans. I'm not saying it's unsafe for humans. All I'm saying is that it makes hermaphrodites of frogs."

You like to listen to KRUI online. And odds are you will be desperate to listen to KRUI online once you've moved away from Iowa, because most commercial and college stations are unlistenable (for opposite reasons) and Internet radio will be your only way to get that fix of broadcast Frank Black and Elvis Costello and Modest Mouse and Throwing Muses and Miles Davis and happy bleep-bleep electronica. So go save Internet radio before they take it away.
