3. Trinity Episcopal Church posts daily Bible verses on their Facebook wall. Here's a recent one: "You're no longer wandering exiles. This kingdom of faith is now your home country. You're no longer strangers or outsiders. You belong here, with as much right to the name Christian as anyone. -- Ephesians 2: 19-20."
4. On this day in 1994, Kurt Cobain, lead singer of Nirvana, committed suicide.

5. About 250 readers voted in our non-scientific poll about sharing the mega millions. Our readers are also talking about group ticket buying for the mega millions.
