Sears begins what should be their going out of business sale. If they can’t make decent money at a store in Ala Moana in Honolulu (which they are selling) they should quit retail entirely.

Wunderground gets some respect. I’ve used it for years.

I guess Nixon was dead right about short memories.

Economic crisis comes to Hollywood. It’s been a long time coming and foreshadowed by the rise of YouTube and amateur porn. The digital age allows good production values to come to a living room near you for shockingly little money. Forget Hollywood or Bollywood – Microwood here we come. OK, maybe that’s not the most positive sounding nickname.

People can no longer understand Middle English.
