Friday night variety

Congratulations to the Winnipeg Free Press’ Tim Campbell, Gary Lawless and Randy Turner, winners of the Ellery Award for print. XM’s NHL Home Ice and Worcester television’s Kevin Shea were recognized in the broadcast media.

Chris Nilan, enforcer of the ’80s and ’90s? He “just wanted to save a few bucks.” This isn’t the way to do it.

I forget where I picked this up — Freakonomics or Marginal Revolution makes the most sense — but News From 1930 is a cool little read. It summarizes the Wall Street Journal from that day in 1930.

Check this out: NASA is streaming the audio from Apollo 11 in real time, 40 years later.


And finally, RIP, Walter Cronkite.
