I have a backlog of good links to share -- and my visit to Schnucks this morning put me behind on writing some original content for Gut Check -- so I give you even more ways to procrastinate whatever it is you should be doing.

The very latest on Great Britain's hoof-and-mouth disease outbreak: Restrictions on the movement of livestock have been lifted in most of the country. (New York Times)
