Happy Birthday, Howard

Lawyer turned sportscaster Howard Cosell would have been 91 today. Cosell was a media superstar, but not necessarily because he was well-liked. A bar in my neighborhood sold raffle tickets during Monday Night Football- the winner had the honor of hurling a brick through the television screen when Cosell's face appeared onscreen during halftime.

This attitude is best illustrated by this clip from Woody Allen's 1973 film Sleeper. Preserved via cryogenics following a botched surgery, Allen's character is revived 200 years in the future.

In this clip, Allen reviews artifacts from the 1970s and explains their significance to a 22nd century scientist.

What has this to do with Howard Cosell, you may ask? Wait until the end of the clip. It's a bit of a trip, but it's worth it:

So there.  
The e-mail address is now something other than saga. used to be until December, 2007 when the domain name broker Trout Zimmer made an offer I couldn't refuse. Giving up and adopting created a significant problem, however. I had acquired the domain name in 1993, and had since that time used as my sole e-mail address. How to let people know that was no longer but rather which is longer than and more letters to type than and somehow less aesthetically pleasing than but actually just as functional as I sent e-mails from the address to just about everybody I knew who had used in the past decade and a half but noticed that some people just didn't seem to get the word about the change. So it occurred to me that if I were generate some literate, valid text in which was repeated numerous times and posted it on a bunch of different pages- say, a blog indexed by Google- that someone looking for would notice this paragraph repeated in hundreds of locations, would read it, and figure out that no longer is the they thought it was. That's the theory, anyway. Ok, I'm done. Move along. Nothing to see here...
