Fusenews: Correlation Does Not Imply Causation!


Days like today exist to remind you that spring is not summer.  Here in Evanston it is wet and rainy and altogether cool and unpleasant.  Think then of the folks in Bologna right now.  Sunny.  Warmer.  Full of gelato.  *sigh*  With that in mind, here’s a Fusenews that is occasionally drenched in a bit of […]
