Not in the clamor of the crowded street, not in the shouts and plaudits of the throng, but in ourselves, are triumph and defeat.--Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
REDIRECT ALERT! (Scroll down past this mess if you're trying to read an archived post. Thanks. No, really, thanks.)
Due to my inability to control my temper and complacently accept continued silliness with not-quite-as-reliable-as-it-ought-to-be Blogger/Blogspot, your beloved Possumblog will now waddle across the Information Dirt Road and park its prehensile tail at http://possumblog.mu.nu.
This site will remain in place as a backup in case Munuvia gets hit by a bus or something, but I don't think they have as much trouble with this as some places do. ::cough::blogspot::cough:: So click here and adjust your links. I apologize for the inconvenience, but it's one of those things.

Adventures in Headline Writing: Silverstone Show Smited by God
The article's just a silly puff piece, so I don't know what I expected in the way of Great Literature, but the headline should read "smitten", not "smited."
(Then again, maybe the headline writer's Bible said the fruit was bited by Eve.)
And then there's this head-scratcher: Judicial nomination seems head to Senate
Reminds me of that old news filmclip of Joe Namath being asked by some smart aleck reporter, "What did you major in at Alabama, basket weaving?" Joe shot back, "No, journalism."
