Not in the clamor of the crowded street, not in the shouts and plaudits of the throng, but in ourselves, are triumph and defeat.--Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

REDIRECT ALERT! (Scroll down past this mess if you're trying to read an archived post. Thanks. No, really, thanks.)

Due to my inability to control my temper and complacently accept continued silliness with not-quite-as-reliable-as-it-ought-to-be Blogger/Blogspot, your beloved Possumblog will now waddle across the Information Dirt Road and park its prehensile tail at http://possumblog.mu.nu.

This site will remain in place as a backup in case Munuvia gets hit by a bus or something, but I don't think they have as much trouble with this as some places do. ::cough::blogspot::cough:: So click here and adjust your links. I apologize for the inconvenience, but it's one of those things.

Thirty minutes late to work today for NO DISCERNABLE REASON. I pulled onto I-59 at Deerfoot and everyone was at dead slow. The radio said something about a wreck after Chalkville Road, but I never saw it, if it indeed ever existed. The 5-mile-long clog didn't clear until after the big electronic reader board before I-459.

For once, I really couldn't get too exasperated with everyone's poor ability to drive and read at the same time causing them to slow down to two miles per hour, because there was a message on it about an Amber Alert. From the website, the information is that 14 year old Amber Danielle Shelton of Oneonta "is believed to be in the company of a man she met on the Internet, Michael John Humphrey. Humphrey is a white male, 32, of Headland, Alabama, 5 feet 11 inches, 195 pounds, with brown hair and hazel eyes. He may be traveling in a 1995 maroon four-door Chevrolet Blazer bearing Alabama license plate 37A913W."

I just checked the Alabama Department of Public Safety website, though, and see that the alert has been cancelled, with the notation that the "FBI safely recovered Danielle 3/15/2005 in Midland City, Alabama."

Good for them, and this has apparently just happened, because there is still little information from the local media on it.
