Goodie, more stuff to play with

Gee,  no sooner do I mention rotating titles then RocketJones puts up a howto.  Before I activate mine, I'll have to come up with some more cleverness.

And most of the category icons are done.  I used transparent-background PNGs so that if I ever get around to changing the background color they won't be sitting in little white boxes.  The only one left is for "In Passing."  I just spent a couple of hours browsing through my dingbat collection, and nothing seemed suitable.  Right now I'm out of ideas.  Maybe I'll do a temporary one that says "Imagine Icon Here."

And while you're at it

So Walter Shapiro wants to repeal the second amendment?

That's o.k.  Commenter "rosignol" wants to repeal the first.
(From a discussion at Alphecca, where they're making a little list...)

The Press

Another lament for the decline of newspapers

Marking the death of an editor, and a changing institution:

Newspaper companies, not just those in Detroit, seem to have made a decision to publish newspapers for people who do not like to read. They are putting out papers for those who would rather watch television.
Jack Lessenberry remembers Detroit Free Press managing editor Neil Shine.

(HT Ruth Holladay.)

In Passing

Rotating Title candidate

(If I ever get a rotating title.)

Irritated reader responds to some commenters who can't avoid bringing-politcs-into-everything:

You two should have radio shows, so you could be fired.

In Passing

You can't be too careful

Tom Maguire (in the discussion of his post about the Imus mess):

I was at Home Depot this morning buying some gardening supplies. I had no trouble finding the seed and fertilizer but I nearly caused an incident when I asked where I could find a hose.

Dear Diary...

Beware the Ides of April

Snow flurries, winds, and near-freezing temperatures today.  Spring is back in hibernation, I see.  Bleah!
