have probably seen the news about asteroid "QE2"
(1.5 miles wide, like the one which eradicated
the dinosaurs) that will pass within 3.6 million miles of the
Earth on May 31. That might seem like far, but it is only 15x the distance
between Earth and the moon. Anyway, this
Frank and Ernest comic strip appeared on May 13th and I cut
it out to remind me to post it today, on the eve of QE2. QE2, BTW, is
a nerd pun on the potential destruction to Earth that the government's
Quantitative Easing policy might cause.
