Facebook round-up

Saturday means it’s time for another Face-book roundup. Between BMEM and nursing a cold, it’s a little lighter than I’d like, but for what it’s worth – enjoy!

“A spokesman for the [Bedford] police said that the “person who brought the wanted man into the station was dressed in a full Batman outfit,” adding with appropriate mystery, “His identity, however, remains unknown.””

A faux tourism video for Cleveland, OH, where I used to live. YouTube requires you to watch it at their site, so unfortunately I can’t include it here. But do click the link above and check it out. Hilarious!

A thought-provoking look at income inequality in the US, both the way we perceive it and the way it actually is. If you have any doubt that (a) we have an inequality problem in this country, and (b) that there is some middle ground between the current state of affairs and teh evilz of socialism, do give it a watch. Now if I could only figure out what to do about it. :-S

help with a technical term

I’m writing a story set in a tower (actually an aviary) where instead of windows they have openings in the wall. It’s kind of a window only instead of glass you just have an opening where fresh air comes through.


The problem is, I can’t remember for the life of me what this kind of thing is called. It’s not a balcony because you can’t actually walk out onto it, nor is it a window, because there’s not glass you can close. There’s just an opening in the wall where light and breeze can come in. Unless I’m mistaken Can you call this a window? Or what’s appropriate?


Because, this is driving me absolutely batty. Not that I ever had far to go on that count, but does anyone want to help a girl out? Pretty please?
