Yesterday was the birthday of The Examiner’s Bill Myers and today is the birthday of Shira Mazor. Today is also the birthday of William Weld and Deval Patrick (oh, and JK Rowling, too). Re: The Hill’s 50 most beautiful list, Karl Frisch told finalist Andrew Savage: “I’m really not sure if The Hill is a blessing or a curse haha. Congrats nonetheless.” Most of you would prefer an ocean house. April Ryan‘s blog has been renamed to Fabric of America. Sen. Robert A. Taft of Ohio died 55 years ago today. From Friday’s gaggle: MS.

Wednesday, the 30th, he will have a Cabinet meeting in the Cabinet Room — all right, no laughing? I said the Cabinet meeting in the Cabinet Room and I got no laughs, nothing.” (Laughter.) The Boston Phoenix has put together an interactive feature spotlights the all-time best band, all-time best solo artist, and best new band for each American state. Things Younger Than McCain announced that “the blog hit a milestone…” 500,029 unique visitors since its launch less than three months ago.
