15 seconds of fame, and USA abortion craziness

Now that I have figured out how to put French accents using my qwerty keyboard, I can blog in English, हिन्दी में, et en Français :).

There are many things to talk about, but sadly, only so much time for blogging. I brought my Sun SPOTs to work today, so have been busy configuring them. Maybe we will buy more for the group here :).

So, to begin, I have been immortalized by a mention in the K&K podcast about the Bastille day picnic, with Victoria doing a cameo [a miceo ?] in the podcast. [skip to 10:41 if you want to jump to the mention :)]

Moving on from the above happy news, B pointed to this article in Slate about another dumbassry in the abortion debate.

From the article:
Starting this week, under orders from the state attorney general and the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 8th Circuit, medical providers in South Dakota must present a scripted statement to women who seek abortions. The script, dictated by the legislature three years ago, declares that any abortion "will terminate the life of a whole, separate, unique, living human being."

...

I have to say, it's a relief to learn that the embryo is so complete and independent. I mean, it solves the whole problem. Here's this woman who just wants to be separated from her embryo. And lo and behold, it's already separate! No need to agonize. Just detach it and let it grow. It's separate, it's whole, it's living. Cancel the abortion. Perform a separation instead.

Seriously, when will the 'pro-life' lobby get consistent!

In other news, Leesa has posted pics of our Indian-food adventures. I will post more of it and the Buddha bar experience, but when my hostel net gets better.

Also, a HUGE shoutout to Biplav, who has started a new website to help people looking for advice on GMAT/MBA issues. Best wishes dude!
