Good Morning: Are You Ready for the Weekend?

It's going to be cool and dry for our immediate future. On Friday look for a high in the lower 60's and lots o' sunshine. Over the weekend it will be pretty much the same. Perfect rally and Halloween weather. Even Monday will be rain-free.

On this day in 1945 the first ball point pen was sold in the United States. It cost $12.95, which is the equivalent of $154.00 in 2010 dollars. The first ball point pen was rather a flop, though, mostly because it leaked like crazy.

  1. Am I ready for the weekend? Heck Yea! Saturday is the Jon Stewart/Stephen Colbert's Rally to Restore Sanity/Fear. How much better can it get? I figure the fringe crazies need some rest so tomorrow can be their day to have quiet tea parties at home while the Sane Reign for at least one day! :-) Starts at noon on the mall!
