Regular visitors of The MonT-SteR REPORT will notice a few small improvements. In addition to my recent migration to Audioblogger, I’ve discovered another happy little feature provided by the good folks at Blogger. The search bar that appears at the top employs Google site search. Visitors to tMR now have the ability to search the entire blog by keyword. Nifty, huh?

I should also mention the linkage commerce that has recently occurred between this space and Robert Hayes’ blog, Let’s Try Freedom. Robert contacted me and, after buttering me up with kind comments about tMR, inquired about the possibility of trading blogroll links. His site is chock full o’ libertarian-conservative punditry, including a series of excellent articles on why America needs the electoral college. Give it a look-see.

By the way, folks, Mr. Yuk is mean, Mr. Yuk is GREEN! What in tarnation am I talking about, you ask? A fond childhood memory. The Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh devised Mr. Yuk in 1971 to help children identify poisonous substances in the home and refrain from ingesting them. Mr. Yuk stickers were distributed to us at school, and then our parents would place them on anything that kids should not smell, should not drink, should not touch, should not eat, or they…will…be SICK! SICK, SICK, SICK!

Sorry. I lapsed into the Mr. Yuk song. The very end of the song was played on the Mr. Yuk TV commercials, and that’s what I remember most. It must have been unique to Maryland, Pennsylvania, and the D.C. area, because people I know who are my age and grew up outside those areas don’t have a clue who Mr. Yuk is. If you’re one of those folks, I told you already: Mr Yuk is mean, Mr. Yuk…is…GREEN!! MWA-HA-HA-HA-HA-HA-HAAAA!!
