Today: Rain likely. High near 77.
A London newspaper recently published findings of a study that asked
volunteers to stick their arms into buckets of freezing water for as long
as they could stand.

Tonight: Rain early, then cloudy with occasional showers. Low around 68.
They then discovered that coffee, by raising subjects’ blood pressure,
eased the pain.

Saturday: Showers becoming a steady rain. High near 76.
Well, I for one think the ramifications of this study will soon be felt
everywhere–including Swat.

Sunday: Sunny! High around 73.
I can just see the headline now: Worth Health Center Replaced by Starbucks.


Lunch: Chicken with broccoli, jasmine rice, three bean casserole, eggplant
creole, veggie blend, fortune cookies, wrap bar, lemon cake

Dinner: Chicken picante, rice pilaf, tabouleh, lentil stew, baby carrots,
peas, pizza bar, cream pies

2) World news roundup

* Shortly after firing missiles into Gaza City to target a top Palestinian
militant, Israeli forces raided Deir-al-Balah, a central Gaza town,
declaring a curfew on the Palestinian residents and conducting

had declared earlier this week his intentions to mount an armed assault
against Hamas.

were later captured at a McDonald’s in a town about 80 miles away.
Prosecutors reported that the three suspects will be charged with murder
