1. There was consternation at the apartment this morning: a Desert News was delivered by mistake! As much as I mock the Tribune, it really is the lesser of two evils—and when I had it re-delivered this morning, there was a picture of a kitty in the masthead.

3. Speaking of music, someone in the next row of cubes at work has been listening to Led Zeppelin at barely-discernible volumes for three weeks straight now. I think Led Zeppelin is a brilliant band, but not when you can just hear snippets of songs repeated throughout the day, every day, for three weeks. I might start screaming along with Robert Plant.

4. And in this week’s report on the coming of spring, there are crocus and tulip and daffodil bulbs coming up in the planters downtown.
