iDarwin...and Iceland

Alright, so it doesn't quite fit the short-and-sweet naming scheme of Apple, but I just recently stumbled across this site, whereon you can download audio and text of a myriad of Darwin works. I just finished uploading On the Origin of Species to my MP3 player - if only I could get someone to record all my actual homework readings I'm supposed to get done this week, I'd be all set.

On another note, did ya' hear about Iceland starting up commercial whaling again? Taking this fin whale (note: if you're squeamish about dead animals, don't click that link)? Now, I don't want to use this blog as a soapbox, but part of being in CNR (and CRS, for me) is making sure you get involved in this world full of natural "resources." As such, if you don't agree with the decision, I'd recommend shootin' off an email to the Icelandic Tourism Board or the Chamber of Commerce - let 'em know that you aren't happy with their choice and will spend your tourism/consumer funds elsewhere, if that's your stance. Part of the whole college experience is fostering and cementing that ability to put forward your thoughts and ideas in a rational, focused manner.
