James Doohan ("Scotty" from Star Trek) has died. Alzheimer's and pneumonia, at the age of 85. Sad.

Jim Aparo, famous comic-book artist, has died. Complications form illness, at the age of 72. Damn.

Ice Found On Mars - wait, this 3was back in February, did I miss something? Today's APOD pic shows ice on Mars...seems like they'd have said something, with all the hope we had of finding water. Still, nifty.

Bush picks John Roberts for SCOTUS. Roberts seems to be ultra-conservative, though, admittedly, you do need to separate the man from the cases he's argued, which are not HIS opinions, but the clients'. Still, we'll see...Ann Coulter doesn't like him, and as far as I'm concerned, that could be a good sign, in the end. ;)
