Now and then the comment box brings us something superlative, e.g.

Grumpy Bear? There's ole' Rear Bear, Tall Bear, Freddy Bear, Kelly Bear, Really Bear, Smelly the Bear, Smokey the Bear, Pokey the Bear; I want you to go back over there tonight and tell 'em I'm feelin' right.

Wtcsitememorial.org now has all 5200 rejected submissions for the Ground Zero memorial posted online, including one by Dr. Robert Jarvik, the inventor of the artificial heart. He proposes, er, heart-shaped containers. And an obelisk. And a map of the world, and a weird sail with three thousand life-size epoxy figures that "striving upward, as if in flight, become a fabric banner. Unfurled by the winds of history and caressed by the breezes of our great harbor, each carries within it an enduring heart."
