I’ve been doing a lot of librarian work this week, so the links have piled up a bit.

Chicken, Bacon, Cheese, Chicken
How insane is this sandwich from KFC. Make a bacon and cheese sandwich, then replace the bread with fried chicken. I believe this is the very definition of awesome.

Orlando is having some tough times
Live by the specialty, die by the specialty. Apparently, the federal government banned government conferences in Orlando. This is taking a toll on a city designed for one industry. “Central Florida, without any other true industry, now grovels at the government’s feet to restore itself into good graces and allow a National Park Service meeting to take place at the Ramada Inn again.”

Why Zack Grienke is the best pitcher in baseball
Joe Posnanski runs the numbers.

Watch out for ripoffs after you buy something
I’ve seen this a bunch of times. You buy something online and then see an offer for a “rebate” or “$10 off.” If you click it, then your credit card will be billed forever by these scam artists.

Traffic control in downtown Holliston
When are we finally going to put the stop light at the corner of Washington and Central Streets? We’ve needed for as long as I can remember. 1982, maybe?

How McDonald’s is localizing its recipes around the world — Morocco in this case. If nothing else, it has to be better than the McRib.

Sometimes you get more than you expected. The Red Tape Chronicles takes a look at how to handle the inevitable billing mistakes. Don’t worry about your doctor hating you; they’re removed from the billing process and usually just as annoyed as you are.
