First off, Geoff Carter's new bl-g (that one's for you, Geoff) is excellent.

Oh, and the Oberlin Stories Project is awesome, too. I hope to contribute sometime soon -- perhaps after I return from my East Coast trip, which starts tomorrow, ends Jan. 26, and includes a side trip to the Inauguration and a stay at Moishe House D.C. I'll be writing about my experience for Jew-ish.com, and likely also here as well. Stay tuned!
