Overheard from a TV show that played originally on Friday:

She did say that the spoke "funny" Spanish, so maybe they weren't native speakers.

Not the right Law & Order former ADA, but what with Crossing Jordan off the air, Women's Murder Club is on my short list of programs I'm watching, and not just because of Angie Harmon (my third-favorite former ADA between the original and SVU).

Overheard on the Unicode List from James Kass:

There are many things I like about the Unicode Standard, but assigning a character and then telling people they mustn't use it isn't one of them.

Well put, James. I am feeling like there are too many people these days who never learned about don't start none, won't be none!

To which Doug Ewell replied, tongue firmly embedded within cheek:

󠀁󠁥󠁮I agree.󠀁󠁿

Nothing like making a point by example! 

I'll talk more about this later today, people are still talking lots on the list....
