I am disproportionately annoyed by various mainstream media articles about the Freenode takeover referring to Andrew Lee as "the crown prince of Korea". Korea does not *have* a crown prince. One half is a republic and the other half is a dictatorship. Andrew Lee does *call* himself that, and he may (sources differ) be distantly related to the last actual monarch of Korea (Sunjong, deposed 1910). But it's a self-proclaimed title not recognized by anyone except, apparently, lazy journalists. Feh.

Figured it out. Google thinks I have 5 microphones now and it initially selected the wrong one.
Second snake we saw during the hike, the first one was tiny and slithered off before I could grab a photo.
And that's why you stay on the trail...
First responders removed a woman from a car that flipped at 19th and Harrison in Oakland, CA. A witness, who declined to be interviewed, told police that a blue truck ran the red light, hitting the car in the side, causing it to flip. The driver of the blue truck stayed at the scene.
