The Dark Ages were pretty awesome, I think it really is rather terrible that people have been soured on the era by the propagandistic terms in which it is described. They weren't dark. There were a couple rough centuries, but a lot of things got down and the long march of "progress", ugh, continued.

Print Story Drat. Did I leave the window open?

It was very hot in my apartment this morning, so as I was getting ready I left a window wide open. I'm pretty sure I remembered to close it, but I don't remember closing it. I remember thinking I should close it before I go.
