MARKETING QUESTION

Over the months, this blog has had a lot of harmless fun with this item. But this blog has also become genuinely curious: How long will they continue trying to sell a 2005 calendar? Will they ever give up on it? Or will they reduce the price in a shrewd attempt to attract buyers who are in the market for a 2005 calendar, but think ten dollars is too steep? And do they intend to come out with a 2006 model? If so, when? 2007? 2008?

UPDATE: These are also still available.

QUESTION FOR PARENTS

Does anybody know a good way to teach, let's say, a six-year-old how to ride a two-wheeler? Is there a better system than running along next to the child, holding the bike up and shouting "You're doing great!" in an insincere voice until you keel over from oxygen deprivation?

Here is where I believe the situation stands: Following last week's gas attack on CTU HQ, the Hobbit is dead. So is Tony, who is not to be confused with Tony Soprano, who is in a coma after getting shot by Uncle Junior. In addition, many nameless CTU staff extras are dead. Edgar also remains, tragically, dead. Audrey is still alive, prompting us to wonder where Uncle Junior is when we need him. Jack Bauer is also still alive and now holds the world indoor breath-holding record. The terrorists still have something like 18 Killer Kanisters, and evidently they will stop at nothing in their cruel and inhuman quest to make this particular plot thread last for the rest of this season. The president of the United States contunues to be a big girl's blouse and a complete handbag. Speaking of which, this item is still only $10.

Having missed the last two weeks, I'm depending on you keen observers out there to explain what is happening tonight. Since I have no idea what's going on, rather than put my clueless updates here in the main section, I'll put my comments down in the comments section, where they will mingle freely with yours. So I hope everybody is wearing protection.

WHAT THEY COULD USE TO LIGHTEN THE MOOD AT CTU WHILE THEY'RE DOWNLOADING THE SCHEMATICS FOR JACK

They could use a couple of these babies.
