Today's moment of surreality: Finger-width analysis is a little-known requirement of library school. Fortunately, it's falling by the wayside!

The Library of Congress has posted a lovely tribute to photographer Milton Rogovin.

Everything old is new again, including books featuring Sherlock Holmes and James Bond. Wow.

Egypt says that New York is not taking proper care of the obelisk in Central Park, and might demand it back. (Much like the sentence about the Library of Congress above, we're personifying everything today. Egypt is a sentient being! So is NYC and the LOC!)
And finally, in news of actual people, the tomb of Caligula may have been discovered.
Tomorrow: links from others!
