no one tried to pull an april fools prank on me yesterday, from what I can tell. NPR ran a harmless news piece about people getting to keep their zip codes when they move from now on. apparently lots of folks got upset about the terrible chaos that might cause :)
wish I had been around to experience the war of the worlds bit in 1938. an interesting website about the event can be found here. the site's got scans of newspaper articles the day after, and lots of other fascinating info. apparently, some people believe an alien invasion really happened, and that orson welles tried to turn it into a joke.
if anyone can find downloadable audio from the broadcast online, email me with a link; I'd love to hear it.
