Freon-free Foam

Via Instapundit, this fellow posits that the problems with the Shuttle external tank shedding foam relate to a 1997 change from foam made using freon to a CFC-free foam. I couldn't tell you whether he's right or not, but the anecdotal evidence he cites is pretty ugly.

This Too Shall Pass

I'm scheduled for a routine colonoscopy tomorrow -- with two parents who died of colon cancer, I'm on the list to keep an eye on. This will be the third one and I'm hoping the results are good. But we'll know more later.

In the meantime, I've been on a diet of clear liquids all day. Then there's the clean out procedure that started tonight.

All things considered, though, it beats the alternative.
