    Thank you, Wombat, for helping me to start my day with a little bit of good news. 🙂 
    And of course, thank you again for yet another awesome linkaround.

    In appreciation, I know what an aggravation an aggregation can be – thanks!

    (Yeah, I know – the Revrunt Jackson could have said it better).

    The CIA took down the new underwear bomber before he got on the plane.  Their secret classified counterterrorism tactic?  They got to the airport early and gave away free bran muffins at the Halel Snack Bar.

    Indeed, I rarely do aggregations any more because they take too damn long.  I start off my day in The Ether with Live At Five.

    Bravo, Wombaticus!
