Cosmic Treats

Part of the Star Tribune front page, showing a dark circular object with whitish flecks
The niblets of information listed in the Star Tribune's front page "Have you heard?" box always catch my attention. A few days ago, I saw that the first item had a photo of a chocolate cookie with white chocolate in it, and zeroed in to see what that was about. (An involuntary reaction.)

I laughed out loud when I found out it wasn't a cookie at all, but an elliptically cropped photo of the universe, taken by the Hubble telescope.

Yum! This cookie -- it's full of stars!

Things you miss when you only read the paper online (and not very thoroughly at that).

Long may the Strib continue to publish--and keep delivering!

That's just delightful. That sort of surprise is hard to come by when readers know what they are looking for...
