If I had a pet leopard, I would name him "Mos Def."

And if I had a klezmer band, I would name it "Typhoid Shlomo."

RIP to Cachao, the much revered source of Mambo Fever.

I just wrote a bio about him for work last week. If this trend continues, you may expect sad news about Flyleaf, Richard Lloyd, and Philip Glass in the next few days.

Usually I like Gina Kolata ("...and getting caught in the rain...") but her article about runner's high struck me as bizarrely navel-gaze-y:

"...Yes, some people reported that they felt so good when they exercised that it was as if they had taken mood-altering drugs. But was that feeling real or just a delusion? And even if it was real, what was the feeling supposed to be, and what caused it?..."

Gina! Why ruin things with a lot of talk? If it feels good, it feels good. I'd say that's nature's way of telling you to keep jogging.
