Storm Tracker & Syphilis
There are some things you learn best in calm, and some in storm. ~ Willa Cather
An interesting little info tool on the MSNBC site is this Storm Tracker prgram. It does a great job of delivering a lot of information on our most recent hurricane activity in a compact format.
In completely unrelated news, I've found a new weblog that caters to those of us who love vintage kink called The Tacky Times. Recent entries include some yummy Burlesque galleries and interesting vintage WPA posters. I'm fascinated by how much syphilis was being addressed:
Syphilis is acquired and transmitted largely by youth:youth should receive special attention...
Face the facts and help to control syphilis : Reported cases 100,000 under 19 yrs. of age ... 13,000 between 11 and 15!
Don't gamble with syphilis
