The bigger concern for McWilliams is hangovers. Curling tradition dictates that the winning team buy the losers a round of drinks once they put down their brooms and leave the ice. Though postgame revelry at the Olympics may be muted, McWilliams said he was ready.

“The teams like to have a good time,” he said.

— It really is the best sport, you guys.

I’m not crying you’re crying.
"Publishers who turned out under-designed and under-edited books and magazines in the Internet age have learned the hard way that consumers expect excellence in print. Just as McSweeney’s grand experimental newspaper Panorama suggested in 2009, and as big, beautiful magazines like Vogue prove every month, print is not dead, it simply has some very specific attributes that need to be leveraged. Good printed work includes a mix of elements in which juxtaposition and tempo tell their own story, the kind of story best told with ink and paper."

Definitely asking for a friend - if you lick the roads, will they be cheesy?

(Wisconsin is putting cheese on their roads and the New York Times is ON IT.)

May 11, 1942: Five months into World War II, a young Coast Guardsman from Iowa was shown in a photo feature exhibiting the “typical actions and reactions of the thousands of service men from small towns who, since the war began, have made their maiden journey to the ‘big city.’” Photo: The New York Times

A haiku from the article: An Old-Fashioned Elevator Man

Once again, Metropolitan Diary in the Times hits it out of the park.
One of the highlights of PAing in Manhattan & Brooklyn was taking freight elevators all the time and meeting their operators. Often, these dudes were the friendliest people I’d see all day. They probably thought a scrawny little dude with big glasses trying to haul a magliner loaded down with a couple hundred pounds of whatever was hilarious.

As we turn our local news crews’ attention back to Breezy Point on Long Island, NY once again, this time for a large whale that ended its life on the sand, it’s important to learn from history’s mistakes.

Do not, under any circumstances, try to blow it up.

I cannot get over the webcam that the New York Times stuck on the roof of their building. The pre-storm city is beautiful at just about two in the morning!

Great shot from the nytimes building in NYC.  Image updates every 60 seconds.  Great viewing for tomorrow, depending on whether or not it remains intact. 

Well, that’s purdy. Cluck thru.

Since 9/11, there’s been an incredible number of incidents where photographers are being interfered with and arrested for doing nothing other than taking pictures or recording video in public places.

It’s not just news photographers who should be concerned with this. I think every citizen should be concerned. Tourists taking pictures are being told by police, security guards and sometimes other citizens, “Sorry, you can’t take a picture here.” When asked why, they say, “Well, don’t you remember 9/11?”

I remember it quite well, but what does that have do to with taking a picture in public? It seems like the war on terrorism has somehow morphed into an assault on photography.

I know I’ve written about it before, but it’s always good to see new attention paid to the struggling Catskills region in upstate New York. Unfortunately I wasn’t around to see it, but I understand Grossinger’s was, once upon a time, quite the place to be.
It would have been the coolest to see my family’s name up on a big sign like that. I wonder what happened to all that stuff?

"If you give me the right idea for a program, I can give back to you a three-hour journey where, if you tune in at any time, you’re likely to hear something that will entertain you. But if you take the ride with me, when we get to the end, you’ll say, ‘Wow, what a long, strange trip it’s been.’"

Pete Fornatale, quoted in his New York Times obituary

"The Times’ rule is, we correct anything that is wrong, no matter how small or seemingly silly."
