delBySFR

Has anyone else ever seen this? My smartphone has taken to replacing the word “color” with the word “delBySFR.” Even going so far as to change URLs from Colorado to DelBySFRado and then giving me a 404. It doesn’t happen in all my apps, but does consistently on my RSS Reader, across all of my…

A close look at the law and the allegations suggests that outrage about the Tiny Boo prosecution may be based on incomplete information. Burt Likko dissects the charges and the law for your review, compares that to the advice of his colleagues, and then finishes his nightcap.

A Meathead Watches Gilmore Girls (“Sadie, Sadie”)

Damn those moments that make this show so good, especially when there are so many that don't.
