How Much Is a Porchlight On a Cold Country Road at Night?

"The $8.8-billion Webb Space Telescope
promises to provide a glimpse
at the first light in the universe."

Best Song at Grammys -- Willie Nelson's Chipotle commercial.

Willie's Song/video

Coldplay's haunting classic "The Scientist" is performed by country music legend Willie Nelson for the soundtrack of the short film entitled "Back to the Start." The film, by film-maker Johnny Kelly, depicts the life of a farmer as he slowly turns his family farm into an industrial animal factory before seeing the errors of his ways and opting for a more sustainable future. Both the film and the soundtrack were commissioned by Chipotle to emphasize the importance of developing a sustainable food system.

"I won't jump."

From a friend's email:

"What is poignant is that this morning
I had read an article in the October 13
edition of the New Yorker titled "Jumpers."
It is about suicides off the Golden Gate.
Anyway, toward the end of the article
the S.F. coroner is quoted about a 1963 suicide
off the bridge. The guy was 31 or 37.
He lived in this sparse little room
and left a note which said,
"I’ll walk to the bridge
and if just some one person smiles,
I won’t jump."
