London Free Press:

WKRP DVD is not for diehards.  Same reason why it’s taking so long for “La Femme Nikita, the TV Series” to make it to DVD.  Copyrights on popular songs.  It may not always be an issue, though.

A procedural chess match.  Enquirer headlines appeal to an Enquirer citizenry awash in an Enquirer culture.

SF New Mexican:

Committees punt on short-term rental proposals.  Short term rentals tend to diminish the quiet enjoyment of life in older neighborhoods downtown.  New car(s), new people next door every few days?  I wouldn’t like it much either.

Washington Post, Reliable Source:

One of the last New Dealers in Washington is retiring, and Sanjaya Malakar is going to the White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner.  Makes for an interesting juxtaposition; I suppose FDR would have told Sanjaya, “When you get to the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on.”

NY Times Business:

Profits Up 69% at Google, Exceeding Expectations.  I kick myself, and kick myself, because I didn’t buy Google stock when it went public.  To hell with text ads, get-rich-quick weblog schemes.  That one move would have paid for many decades of weblogging, giving direct and honest financial reward for the years of prognosticating online.

Physicists bid farewell to reality? Quantum mechanics just got even stranger. The tree in the forest makes a different sound, depending on who’s looking at it, and may or may not make a sound depending on whether or not you choose to listen?  Sounds maddening, and fascinating.
