New and Newsworthy (to me)

…or stories I followed this past week.

General:
Stormy weather: Irene caused widespread damage on the East Coast. Here’s hoping Tropical Storm Lee doesn’t do worse this weekend!
Cosmic Carats: Astronomers discover a planet made of diamonds.
Magic Pen: Inkling by Wacom, wow!

Local:
The saddest summer tradition: The Seattle Public Library has been closed all week due to budget cuts. I go to my local library every week, it’s awful to see it down for so long.
Washington nightmare: ‘Woman Crawls From Swamp, Unclothed and Injured, Onto I-5’
-On a bright note: Bumbershoot starts today!

Cute Animals:
Fantastic Mr. Fox on a conveyor belt
Squirrel crashes the pitch at a women’s soccer match.
Cat trapped in box by a bully. Lion cat looks on.
