This is it. Wow. It's amazing to think that the company held no value for anyone aside from liquidators.

The Bluths make HuffPo

When I first came across this, I did the Internet surfing equivalent of a double-take. And then I looked for a "partner post" or some other indication that this was a paid advertisement. Nope, it's the real deal:

The Huffington Post has an Arrested Development page. Seriously.

Perhaps this isn't much of a stretch, though: when you consider that other HuffPo pages are devoted to such topics as the U.K. phone hacking scandal and U.S. politics, the Bluth clan seems to fit right in.

Counting down

In my worst estimation of the Borders mess, I didn't imagine this. I have a location just down the road here -- as I've written before, the staff can be (and has been, on numerous occasions) a pain in the you-know-where, but it's nice to know I'm so close to so much great literature. At the rate this thing is going, though, that store is going to be replaced by an auto dealership in no time.
