news flash from Chicago

My niece had her baby yesterday. She is a real cutie, 7 lbs., 9 oz. My brother texted the news during our faculty meeting and sent the first photo below, along with my favorite line of the week: "By the way, I finally broke down and got an iPhone...I don't know how Western Civilization was born and we got to where we are today without it! I have SO drunk the Kool-Aid!!" That makes me smile almost as much as the newborn photo. Congrats to all--new mom, dad, aunt, and grandparents. Flowers are on the way!!

So true--a nice antidote to the stuff going on over at reassigned time. I've got to get to over to one of your posts from yesterday that I really liked and leave a comment. Thank god I've been too busy to get involved in all of that--some of those bloggers are angry in a scary sort of way.
