The New "Description"

I recently posted a new "description" for this blog (under the title). It's what the linguists came up with to warn people 10K yrs. in the future that there is a nuclear waste dump underfoot. Yes, it's in English (hey, people were speaking English 10,000 years ago, so why shouldn't they - oh - wait . . . never mind . . . ).

Harry Shearer imagines what those people will be thinking: "Yep. There's gold down there."

But it's a pretty good description of this blog and its place in the blogosphere, and it's a much better poem than any you're likely to read here. So - enjoy! But don't dig too deep . . .
