Virginia Saunders died in her sleep last night. She had recently completed her 64th year in federal service. Hired by the FBI as a clerk/typist in 1945, she moved to the Government Printing Office a year later. For the last forty years - I'll repeat that - forty years, she has been the person responsible for compiling the Congressional Serial Set. Take a look at this video the GPO put together. The best part is at 4 minutes, when they explain how she won an award for saving the taxpayers more than $600,000 with a single suggestion.

The comic strip 9 Chickweed Lane is occasionally funny. It's mostly about relationships and cats.

This arc reads like something from the alternative weekly.
