When the Onion calls Jim Belushi's book uncatalogable by the Dewey Decimal System, OCLC steps in to work things out. Hee. See, librarians do have senses of humor!

News librarians are finally getting some publicity. I miss being a news researcher.

Kentucky librarians are now there for you 24 hours a day. I wonder what the 3 a.m. questions are like.

Speaking of strange questions, the AOL search fallout has resulted in a Slate article categorizing searchers. I think I'm the Omnivore.

Google's newest innovation: music trends. I always thought I was an alternative music girl, but evidently I like a lot of indie music according to Google. Maybe I'm a latent hipster and don't know it.

For the graphic novel aficianados: check out the Comic Books Archive!

The National Priorities Project shows you how government money could alternatively be spent. If the war in Iraq wasn't going on, for instance, Ohio would have enough money to hire 176,333 music and arts teachers.

The Bamiyan Buddhas may be rebuilt! Huzzah!

Tomorrow: links from others.

The National Priorities Project link is a great one, Jinnet.

I am on a never-ending quest to help the vast innumerate masses better grasp the scale of the Bush Administration's financial shenanigans, and this should help.

Swiping it now . . . ;^)

Thanks!
