58 years ago, “Peanuts” was first published. 23 years ago, Rock Hudson died. 10 years ago, Gene Autry died. It’s the birthday of Annie Leibovitz. Curious quote yesterday: Chris Matthews saying on “Hardball” that we’re all going to see Sarah Palin tomorrow night “for good or for evil.” Politico’s Matt Wuerking has some new animated cartoons up. What do journos eat for breakfast? Most of you would rather keep the job you have than find a new one. Check out today’s White House Photo of the Day from Time. Today’s “Angry Journalist” rant of the day: “I’m a better editor than my editor. I file my stories after checking spelling and grammar, but it never fails… they publish with more errors than I could have ever imagined. I’m angry because my editor screwed her way up our company ladder. Now our whole company is too busy looking up her skirt to realize the lack of work coming out of her office.”
Today’s FishbowlDC comment of the day (with regards to yesterday’s post “Olsson’s Says Goodbye“: Reader “sconset” writes, “I read this with great sadness…this was my neighborhood bookstore when I lived in Georgetown. They always had a wonderful and knowledgable staff and could get any book you needed or wanted. The music department was terrific too. What a sad day for Washington.” Keep the FishbowlDC discussion going by dropping your comments here.
