Friday at last. Thanks to everyone for reading and sending in links!

First, a moment of silence for yet another casualty of 2009: Reading Rainbow is ending its run. Say it ain't so, LeVar.

From Julie: Upwards lightning! Wow!

From Zazoo: Madonna sticks up for the Gypsies, and the Hungarian concert audience is not won over.

From Josie: A look back at the New Romantics and Blitz Kids!

From Cassandra: The three faces of the Trifid Nebula, the ten best rock and roll feuds, the first intact ball and chain found in the River Thames, and what is apparently the first male tortoiseshell cat. (Love the name they gave him!)

From Holly via Tony: Christian Bale and Kermit the Frog debate who is really the Batman. Yes, really.

From my RSS feeds (I forgot to note the exact weblog, sorry): Women and science fiction warfare.

Have a spiffy weekend, everyone! See you Monday.

Reading Rainbow? Over?
No more Busy busy bees Busy busy busy bees?

Judging from the comprehension and grammar level of our current crop of students, looks like childhood reading went out the door with grunge and flannel anyhoo.

So long Levar and thanks for all the memories!
