Friday Mars Blogging.

N165 is the "Coronation Rock," that is, the first bit of Mars to be blasted by Curiosity's laser. Gotta break some eggs, I suppose...

I think some anthropologist or another described man as the naming animal. The fact that the blast damage from Curiosity's landing is now officially the Goulburn Scour Mark is pretty good proof of his point.

Map of the day.

I've come to appreciate our mail-in elections as an effective block to Republican voter suppression efforts.

Hat tip to Millard Fillmore's Bathtub.

Romney’s style of politics is that of his dressage horse in the London competition, an elite ballet set to classical music during which the hoi polloi are not supposed to talk.
