Today is November 14th. On this date in 1832, New York City’s first streetcar went into operation. Contrary to popular belief, it was not named “Desire” but rather “Moderate Interest.” (People were more circumspect in those days.) Also, today is National Pickle Day, notably celebrated in Tacoma with a city-wide pickle hunt. Ah pickle hunting. That really takes me back to my childhood. Who can forget the joy of finding a pickle and knowing that you would get to eat that day?! Speaking of hunting, below, please find the links I’ve bagged for today and, as always, consider this an Open Thread.
