TECHNICAL DIFFICULTIES. No one other than Media Log e-mail subscribers will know what I'm talking about. Yesterday, though, Blogger.com was down for hours, and I was unable to post any content. I finally deleted the post and wrote a new one this morning.
But I've discovered that even though I couldn't upload yesterday's post to the Web, e-mail subscribers received it anyway. So if you're confused, that's why. (Unless you're confused by my prose, which I deal with below.)
LEXIGRAPHICAL DIFFICULTIES. Media Log reader M.B. suggests that my description of inside information regarding the Globe's business plans as "dirt" was, uh, imprecise. After consulting a reliable source, I would agree. And no, I don't suppose "lexigraphical" is really a word.
