Today, I continued on the deck staining project (as mentioned in a post yesterday). I needed a newspaper to put under the brushes and can of stain. Yesterday was recycle day, so I threw out all my old newsprint. Scouring the garage, I came across an old newspaper, still covered in plastic. I took it out of the plastic, picked a few pages at random from the middle and placed it under my can of stain. About an hour later, dipping my brush into the can, I saw this headline staring out at me:

The paper was the San Mateo County Times (I don't subscribe, it is randomly tossed into my driveway) from July 9. And yep, it's that article that Risa has mentioned. If I were superstitious, I would say this was an omen. Of what, I'm not sure, but if I were superstitious that wouldn't matter.
