Wednesday, October 18 is...

Independence Day (Azerbaijan)
Day of the Liberals (Paraguay)
Persons Day (Canada)

From, which I think is a Canadian governmental site:

On October 18, 1929, the British Privy Council decided that women were "persons" under Canadian law, and therefore eligible for appointment to the Senate. This decision was rendered after a lengthy legal and political struggle, known as the "Persons Case." Each year, the Governor General's Awards in Commemoration of the Persons Case are presented on or around this date.

There's got to be something I can use to segue from that, but I can't find it. Here's some stuff:

A Carlisle man is making his third trip to jail in 2006, this time after being caught stealing an electric toothbrush from Wal Mart. In the non-surprising part of the story: his name is Billy Joe.

There's been lots of conversation in the past about the situation with Brent and Staci Appel, and I'm not going to add any more to it, but I did want to point out this Register story, showing that Staci's opponent has decided to make it an issue.

The Drake theater department is cleaning out their costume closet this weekend, just in time for Halloween. Go pick out a costume your significant other will be mortified to see you wearing at an inappropriate time, like when her parents are in town.

Or maybe I'm the only one who does things like that.

I've got one more thing this morning, but it merits its own post.
