Open Thread at Noon

Yesterday was really nasty in the Open Thread. I'm sure the offending parties won't stage a repeat, and I appreciate that. That said, I don't want this to become the food-fight thread. It's "open" in terms of topics, not decorum. As always, before you publish ask yourself why you're here, and why you're even bothering to comment. These are always, always, good questions to tackle before hitting "post." Or whatever that button says.
