Theh only news item in the past four months that I can remember hearing people discuss for days afterwards, tell eachother about, talk about experiences with… is the news of Reagan’s death. Why?

Perhaps it has something to do with the circles you’re in. I happened to be at a newspaper shortly after Reagan died, and though the staff was dealing with getting the news out, they weren’t solely focused on it. Even though I was around lots of news librarians during the past few days, I haven’t heard many people talking about it.

I’m blogging about sexy librarians, not Reagan’s death. Visit my blog if you need a break.

Poor you. Trying to get away from Reagan and there it was in the ceremony. At least it only lasted for a moment.

I wasn’t trying to get away from word of his death; just interested in the differential spread of memes.
