DX Astro Mutan (and link roundup)

1. Greg Packer, the man the media loves to cite as regular joe, has struck again. This time, he showed up at a temple on Long Island and commented on the Mumbai attacks:

"This is not just a Jewish thing," Packer said. "The terrorists didn't just kill Jews in Mumbai. Many people were targeted and killed. Yes, the Jews have always been targets. We have to continue to be vigilant and watch our backs. But when something like this happens, we are all one people."

2.  Author describes the amusingly bizarre vision he had when his heart stopped beating for several minutes. Via.

3, What Jon Bon Jovi says in his preconcert prayer. An excerpt:
so I'm just sayin' I appreciate your making kick-ass lead guitar a priority in '83. You didn't have to do that, but you did. And you didn't stop there—you focused on filling out my lineup with a bassist, a drummer, and a keyboardist, and even went further by re-answering my prayers and sending another bassist to get us through the departure of our original bassist, and I appreciate that as well. As I've told you in prior preshow prayer circles, he was fired because his playing became unsatisfactory in live situations after we got famous. That's all I'm going to say about that, as I think you know what the real story is there and you have the power to guide him through it.
