La Fin du Siecle

Well, it's official, we're naming this babe-a-licious little number Mara Esperanda Swait. Mara, which is the same name as Mary, means "bitter," and Esperanda means "hoping" or "waiting." It's an eschatological sort of name.

Speaking of "bitter," it looks like the Daily Sprout's smartest people (highest average) are from Wisconsin and Minnesota. Does the cold excite the brain cells, is that it?
