Wallet clearout

These are my notes from the top 10 of the Top 100 cartoons:

In case you didn't see it, Tom & Jerry were second, and The Simpsons were first. You might disagree about the order but they share this one crucial characteristic: the early series were so very much better than the later ones..

When I was a kid, I used to look out for Fred Quimby's name in the credits - that usually guaranteed "Classic" T&J, not that later rubbish (why did Tom have to talk, why oh why..)

Gone monthly

Now this isn't JALD anymore and there's Google search to look at the archives I've
gone for a monthly archive. It'll take a while for Google to index the archive pages, though.

If anyone's interested, this is what you have to put in your template to strip the navbar down to search only:

/* Lose bits of navbar I don't like */
/* Lose logo div */
#b-navbar, #b-logo
display:none !important;
/* Lose it's contained img */
#b-logo img
display:none !important;
/* Other stuff */
#b-more, #b-getorpost, #b-next, #b-this, #b-blogthis
display:none !important;

It goes in the top of the template with the other CSS rules.

So I thought, well, I can never get into Blogger in the evenings so I will set up the email address posting thing and post by emailing to that.

Doesn't work. Had to post manually.

My heart feels like an alligator

Goodbye Hunter S Thompson

As the ultra-perspicacious Weaver asked right away - what would Doonesbury do about
Duke? Seems like many asked, and the answer is that Duke is no longer
Thompson. Well, noone is, now, but they
both were once
. Tom
Wolfe's obit
is OK.
Me, I don't know - but Carl Fussell of Mpls, MN wrote

Thompson hated you almost as much as he hated Duke. If you had any restraint you'd stop insulting him with the gross parody and ditch Duke. The man killed himself for God's sake. Show some class.

Title from Fear & Loathing In Las Vegas: a book I can't recommended highly enough..
