Better get busy reading

Their own personal bookmobile: An Edmonds teen and her father last week made a 307.8-mile journey, visiting each of the 21 branch libraries in the Sno-Isle Library system, checking out at least one book at each branch.

The Guinness Book of World Records will review its files to see if the duo broke the record for Most Times Shushed By Librarians in a Single Day.

  • Whistling wiki: The Washington Post uncovered Watergate. The New York Times published the Pentagon Papers. Now, classified field reports from the Afghanistan war have been publicized through the efforts of the whistle-blowing website Wikileaks.

    Not to pass judgment on the work that Wikileaks is doing, but couldn’t they have picked a name that doesn’t sound like baby talk about a toddler with a wet diaper?

  • This never happened to A Flock of Seagulls: The rock band Kings of Leon had to halt its concert after only three songs at an outdoor arena in St. Louis, after pigeons began pelting the band with droppings from their perch in the rafters above.

    That is unusual, since pigeons usually wait until a statue of a king has been erected to relieve themselves.
