1. We’re moving to Seattle soon, and I start to worry that the local newspaper there won’t carry the soap opera comic strips. How will I keep up with Mary Worth? Then I remember that I often download these very strips from the Seattle Post-Intelligencer‘s Web site for use in my blog. I feel a great wave of relief washing over me.
2. The National Hockey League’s Stanley Cup Playoffs are underway, which means that ESPN is running a hockey playoff summary show every night at 9 p.m. This is bad news for me, because it preempts the program that was previously in that time slot: The Comics Roundup. The comics show has been pushed to the lesser-watched ESPN 3 network, which I don’t get. This, I think, is a good reason to pay for more than just basic cable.
