("Hello, India! We bring you infection, in the form of Jesus and germs!")
Please note that this coming Monday, October 12th, is the day known as "Columbus Day." I will not be blogging on this day--not because I'm a filthy imperialist, but because the schools are closed, and if I don't spend the day corralling my seventeen (17) children they will fan out and destroy the neighborhood. You know, just like Citi Bike is doing.
Rest assured I will be back on Tuesday, October 13th with regular updates.
Pending my triumphant return and the concomitant fanfare, I'm pleased to present you with a quiz. As always, study the item, think, and click on your answer. If you're right you'll know, and if you're wrong you'll see Australian ingenuity.
Thanks very much for reading, ride safe, and go ahead and take a long weekend.
You deserve it.
