Just watched some old British children's TV with the kids.  Captain Pugwash, The Magic Roundabout, and the Clangers.  Classic.  Isabella's review of The Clangers: "That was weird."

Oh, wait.....

Why can't people speak plainly?  Just got this from a University administrator, referring to a previous email with a broken link: "Please forgive the provision of dysfunctional links.  These should provide resolution."
