29 things to be happy about / Yes, it’s all doom and gloom and war and global warming and Bush. Except when it’s not

Mark Morford on 29 things to be happy about / Yes, it's all doom and gloom and war and global warming and Bush. Except when it's not

Number Two is especially brilliant.

What things are you happy about?

Me? I’m happy our leaks are fixed and all this winter rain and storming has produced nary a drop in a bucket.

Archives, come get your archives … (Time Magazine)

Filed under: journalism,resource — Towse @ 7:06 am

Time Magazine archives back to 1923 are now available online and FREE!

Time‘s search algorithm doesn’t work so hot. They claim that if I put “sally j towse” into the search engine, it will return only articles that contain “sally j towse,” but it appears to return articles that include “sally” or “j” or “towse.”

When I pop simply “towse” in, I get a Towse going back to the 20s and 30s, but not my Letter to the Editor that Time used back in the 90s.

Special collections, covers, and more.

Thanks, Time!
