I turned on the news when I walked in tonight, saw Elizabeth Smart's picture on the screen, and my heart sank. I assumed they were announcing that they had found her body and another family's torment had ended in tragedy.
So I was thrilled to learn that she had been found alive! I'm sure we'll hear about the horrors of her kidnapping and inprisonment, but at least her story hasn't ended the way some others have.
Spent the whole day at Diversity training. I am now Diverse. I guess. I am, however, still Cynical and Not Politically Correct. I do not believe that they have any de-programming classes for those things, so I guess I'll keep the website going.
On that note . . . here's the latest from Scrappleface:

"We didn't want to completely exclude the French after their great historic contributions to the fields of cuisine and combat," the chef said. "I might add that our customers can still order French Dip Sandwiches.
