Weirdness Wednesday

Indian scientists are investigating whether a man was killed by a meteorite, which if confirmed would be the first recorded death from falling fragments of space rock in almost 200 years.

Jayalalithaa Jayaram, the chief minister of Tamil Nadu, has said a bus driver at a college in her state was killed by the meteorite and awarded 100,000 rupees ($1,470) in compensation to his family.

“A meteorite fell within the college premises,” Jayalalithaa said. The man “sustained serious injuries and died while on the way to the hospital”.

Jayalalithaa, a former film star, left tight-lipped local officials struggling to explain the mystery blast at the engineering college that left a small crater and broke windows.

The bus driver was standing on a patch of grass near the college cafeteria when he was killed, while two gardeners and a student were injured, officials said. A dark blue stone resembling a diamond was found at the scene.

    It was reported this AM that it was not a meteorite after all, an underground explosion was said to be the cause.
    It figures.

      Home from the concert. First the all-university symphonic band and then the audition symphonic wind ensemble. The second group closed with the Liszt Totendanz with Professor Jeff Savage playing the piano with the requisite vigor.

      Nodded to Reagan and Kaelin. Chatted just a bit with Alice. My congratulations to principles both student and faculty.

      Another fine evening.

    The other “in” new car color this year is green. The green cars come to more variety of shades of green than the yellow cars do. Most are tasteful but there are a few pea soupers.
