7.10.2003r o x i o | CD Printing, from Sharpie to High-End Color I worried whether using Sharpies on CD-Rs was a bad idea... and I found out it wasn't:
"Simple, plain, cheap (and potentially ugly if your handwriting is poor), the Sanford Sharpie has long been a staple of the CD labeling scene. Simply write on the matte (non-recording) side, and you'll remember what this particular piece of media contains.
From the earliest days of CD-R, when a piece of blank media could cost $100, people have always been nervous about writing on the surface of the CD. Could it cause problems down the road? What type of marker should be used? Certainly not a pen with a ball point or any kind of hard tip - that could scratch through the lacquer that protects the top surface of the disc, and damage the reflective layer beneath, where your data is actually recorded.
But many of us have used Sanford Sharpie pens for many years without trouble. I have discs which were marked with a Sharpie ten years ago, and they still test with low physical error rates on a Clover QA 101D and CDA 1000 CD Analyzer. "

The Saint Paul Pioneer Press: "STILLWATER TOWNSHIP: Heated political debate in hot tub hits boiling point
BY AMY BECKER
Tony Kohout's evening in a hot tub with five women turned political and ended with doctors stitching up his eyelid.
Kohout ran into a group of women at Brine's Restaurant and Bar in Stillwater on May 24. He knew one of the women from high school. They let him join them in a hot tub at a home in Stillwater Township.
For a while it was just the usual story of five high school friends chatting in a hot tub with a guy and some Amstel Light.
'I thought, 'Wow, this is amazing,' ' Kohout said. 'Then it just kind of turned sour.'
Talk turned to politics, and Kohout got in a dispute with Anne M. Robinson, 24, of St. Paul.
Kohout, 25, of Minneapolis, recalls it this way:
Robinson was describing working in a restaurant for about $5.25 an hour and airing concerns about competing with undocumented workers.
He told her, 'That's really not that true.'
They debated President George W. Bush's tax cut. Kohout declared it was only for the rich, and Robinson countered that people earned the money and it belongs to them, he said.
'We were cutting into each other's sentences,' Kohout added. 'We both knew we were making each other angry. It got personal.'
Then Robinson lost her temper, said Elaine Bransford, who was there.
Robinson clocked Kohout in the face with a blue drinking glass, according to the felony complaint summons filed against Robinson in Washington County District Court.
'I remember seeing the glass fall,' Kohout said. 'I looked down and the water turned pink. My eye filled with blood and I couldn't see.'
Bransford drove Kohout to Lakeview Hospital in Stillwater about 4 a.m. Doctors closed his cuts "
