Monday Reads

  1. I obsessed over the Fiske Guide to Colleges when I was in high school.  I’m not sure this scorecard can fully replace it (particularly without an input for test scores or GPA), but I like to see the White House taking the steps to encourage all students to go to college and to find the one that best suits them.
  2. It’s summertime so I am constantly craving lobster rolls.  While you’re snacking on the delicious sandwich, you can think about these lobstah factoids.
  3. After seeing an Indian wedding on a “Say Yes to the Dress” special, I was intrigued.  There are so many interesting customs that are so different from my own.
  4. There must be absolutely nothing to do in Alaska but drink…even if you’re preggers (such a no-no).  Apparently the state has the highest rate of fetal alcohol syndrome so there a lot of women who are boozing while carrying a bun in the oven.  Hoping to combat this, the state is putting free pregnancy tests in the bathrooms of 20 bars and restaurants starting this December.
