Links for 4.4.09: Postal slang, fish counting, undriving…
by Josh Kimball
*Language: At the post office, a “deadhead” is a vehicles that travels without mail. See Schott’s collection of U.S.P.S. jargon here. I call junk mail “winter coats.” No, I don’t.
*Update: ZERO update from Sam Beam of Iron and Wine on the podcast I have proposed to do with him. I’m starting to think that this podcast will have to wait until at least Q3.
*Economy: Jim Cramer says the Depression is over. Uh boy.
*Nature: Fish can count. We eat fish. Therefore, we can count. LOGIC.
*Green: Read Worldchanging’s post on undriving. “Un” seems to be the prefix of 2008 and 2009.
