Electrifying news from Israel

See here.

If this pans out, maybe the Interstate System could power half the United States. Or maybe it's too good to be true . . .

THURSDAY: The Israeli idea, or something like it, is also being promoted in the U.S. See here.

On another matter, the other evening I saw a television documentary (or maybe it was a commercial) on a subject I've forgotten; its most notable feature was a buxom young woman in the background wearing a tight white T-shirt emblazoned "SAVE THE MEMORIES." What was that all about, besides being an enticing pun?

Schott's Vocab, the New York Times blog on language, has the answer.
