I took this as we were crawling along Canada Street in Lake George. We saw a lot of interesting cars this weekend.
This is the Edelweiss building that sits right on the lake. The deck in front of it is the top of the boat house.

This may seem like a strange topic at first, but if you think about it for a while you will discover that it's a topic worth considering. For starters, physicists are cooler than various other scientists because they study things that vary in size from a single atom to an entire galaxy. You have to admit that covers a pretty sizable chunk of what we call the known universe.
So after all that you're probably wondering who might be my favorite physicist. The answer is Richard Feinman. Who's yours?

Then the Mayor of Tunkhannock, a nearby small town, Norm Ball wrote a letter to his local paper which was reprinted by The Washington Post. In this letter Ball wrote that Obama isn't good for America and that Obama's upbringing in the Muslim world remains a mystery, thereby proving that rural Pennsylvanians are indeed ignorant and racist.
Finally, since these things seem to come in threes, The Artist Almost Formerly Known as The President visited Israel on the 60th anniversary of that country's founding and in a speech before the Israeli Senate compared Obama's desire to open dialog with the president of Iran to British Prime Minister Chamberlain's appeasing Hitler prior to the break out of World War II, thereby proving that ignorance and racism extend far beyond the borders of Pennsylvania.
