- Two songs that were never intended to be played back to back, but were this afternoon on one local station: “Sweet Home Alabama” by Lynyrd Skynyrd and “Chains of Love” by Erasure. I’m not a big fan of either, but the juxtaposition amused me greatly. Or at least mildy.
- Sad news du jour: the Charlotte Observer will no longer be sold in this area starting next week. My friends know that I still very much like my printed newspapers, and this limits my options considerably.
- Got my digital converter coupons in the mail today. I’m not sure how useful they’ll be without an outside antenna, and I almost want to keep one of them as a souvenir.
