I got a thing from Google that said “check out your site in Google Search Console and make sure it’s optimized for the best results.” Since “best results” is pretty much the last thing I want from my website I had let it go, but I clicked on it today, and in addition to a lot of fancy responsive graphs that indicate that you, dear reader, are one of a very, very, very few people who have done so, it also showed that people get here because they search for stuff.

At first, the stuff they search for seem pretty nonsensical, but when you recall that I wrote a TV column for an Atlanta weekly or two for several years (and one in Ohio before that, in my college life) and recall as well that those posts are all still faithfully preserved here in digital amber…well, then you get why people would be typing in

…and so on and…numerology? What the? Oh. I wrote a post called “Birthday numerology” once. Did Paul Ossmann get married? I have no idea. Do I use the word ‘Indeed’ too much? Looks like I do.

It’s kind of amazing what desperate souls clacking at keys at 2 am want to find out about our world, and I can think of no better purpose for this particular piece of web real estate, so hey, have at it. Search! Find! Lose some hope! We’re a full-service establishment.

Came across some rags from the 1970s.

About the foreign press booing at Davos:

The press’s job is to report, not react. That said, forms of unified protest when reporters can’t do their jobs (can’t report) is legit. Walk out. Write about it. Booing just turns you into the audience —something the press should never be.

If you’re a journalist or academic and you’re about to write the phrase “difficult to overstate,” step away from the keys and breathe and DO NOT DO IT. #lamewriting

Finally took the desktop machine up to High Sierra (10.13.3) from now-ancient El Capitan. Mostly so far so good.

Cup of pixels?

@brentsimmons my father in law half-seriously wondered if this measured tuberculosis levels.

Ah, the Plaza.
