OK, so it's a journalist praising the value of journalism. That doesn't make her wrong. Worth considering as the trade devolves into a hobby.
This article originally appeared in The Last Word on Nothing. Tagline: “Science says the first word on everything, and the last word on nothing”—Victor Hugo. I am often wrong. I misunderstand; I misremember; I believe things I shouldn’t. I’m overly optimistic about the future quality of Downton Abbey and inexact...

Yet another reason to love your library: Freegal. Sorry, no free gals (more likes legal meets frugal). You can download three free songs a week, and keep them from a fairly robust catalog. Both the Kansas City Public Library and the Mid-Continent Public Library are playing along.

This includes a shout-out to Malcolm Garcia  -- a guy who gets out and sees the world and rewards readers with a gritty street-level view.

Buffett goes all paper boy. As a former fish wrap slinger myself, I particularly appreciate the way he folds the papers before tossing them.

I'm seeking advice from Android users. My phone is maxed out on apps. I've moved all that I can to the SD card. And I've pruned out most of the apps I never use. And my bulkiest apps (Maps, Google Music, etc.) are also the ones I value the most. Is there some other trick?

Get Dolphin browser from the marketplace and use the web when possible. Many apps, especially publications, are the web wrapped in webview api. You gain very little functionality for the bulkiness of an app. And you don't have to update it.

Wise observations from a friend, who also happens to be a fearless journalist. You should read his book.

Saw them at festival last fall. Fun mix, as their name implies, of Indian and Irish roots with an electronic buzz.

Saw them on the Terrace in Madison. I just caught the last few songs of the set but I really enjoyed what I heard

Google Latitude says I stopped by the Fairfax District this morning. News to me. But you can see how it simply misread the cell tower triangulation. Going to leave this on for a while, mostly for alibi purposes. But the privacy implications are pretty obvious.

Shameless promotion for a friend and colleague. This is an engaging read that somehow, masterfully, stitches together Katrina, the Red Baron, the link between young and old and Alzheimer's disease. It's a quick read, well worth your time. By J. Malcolm Garcia. Give it a try.
