Last month I wrote about the Weekly World News and how I was sad to see it have a disclaimer
about the fictious nature of its articles. And today, another thought
hit me—one thing you no longer see in taboids are Elvis sightings (this
being his 71st birthday and all). Has the tabloid world
finally realized that Elvis “The King” Presley has not only left
the building, but actually left this plane of existence? That scores of
fans and New Age cranks come to grips that Elvis will no longer haunt
midwest grocery stores and fried chicken fast food restaurants?
Say it ain't so!

The dates are the permanent links to that day's entries (or
entry, if there is only one entry). The titles are the permanent
links to that entry only. The format for the links are
simple: Start with the base link for this site: http://boston.conman.org/, then add the date you are
interested in, say 2000/08/01,
so that would make the final URL:
You can also specify the entire month by leaving off the day
portion. You can even select an arbitrary portion of time.
You may also note subtle shading of the links and that's
intentional: the “closer” the link is (relative to the
page) the “brighter” it appears. It's an experiment in
using color shading to denote the distance a link is from here. If
you don't notice it, don't worry; it's not all that
