Brazil’s first lands safely; Rolling Stones in China; Red Sox have a flame-throwing closer

Nice bathing suitThe first astronaut of Brazil landed safely with the rest of the shuttle crew. I think it's awesome that people from other countries besides the U.S, Russia, China, and a few others get to go up into space and give their country something to cheer about from the space perspective. Space history is pretty fascinating. And we're on the cusp of space travel (around the earth) becoming as easy as airline travel.

Stones stone the Chinese censors
First sentence in this story: The Rolling Stones rode roughshod over China's censors during their first show in the communist country on Saturday, serenading a largely foreign crowd with songs about Satan, sleaze bags and serial killers.

Nuff' said.

Worcester fact: The Declaration of Independence was first publicly read in Massachusetts by Isaiah Thomas in Worcester in July 1776.

The new flame thrower
The Red Sox won 2 -1 against Baltimore Orioles in Baltimore and Jonathan Papelbon mowed down the first three batters he faced in the bottom of the ninth while leading by one run. Poise under pressure. He's a young flame thrower who compliments an already very decent pitching staff.

Maybe two World Series in three years?
