Maybe I should ask myself for permission to post this, too?
Okay, so for the next little while, I'm going to be going back through this blog's archives and flagging all of the stories that are demonstrably within my legal "fair use" rights for the wire service photos. I'm composing this list mostly for my own reference, so if you're not interested, feel free to pass it on. (I'll be blogging on current news as soon as I'm caught up with what's going on in the world, of course.)
For those of you who don't care about piddly little things like "fair use" and "article lists," I present this offering—The classic Atari game "Pole Position," played with humans. It will hopefully keep you entertained until this blog is able to get back on track with current events:
(With thanks to my buddy Ian for the excellent inspiration.)Ye Classic Article List Oh, you're still interested? That's great! I'll be updating this as I find stuff, so please bear with me. These will hopefully end up being in reverse-chronological order, but we'll see how well that works out as we go.
Oh yeah, and I apologize in advance for the poor quality of my early articles. Profusely! It's as painful for me to read as I'm sure it is for you. ;)
Interestingly enough, be sure to take note of where my image sources are on these last two. The "mysterious" (at the time) disappearance of the AP images from Yahoo is the snowflake that led to this past weekend's little avalanche. Yet notice how the hotlinked AFP photos are still alive? (I'll be removing those hotlinks and swapping the pictures out with thumbnails once enough of you have seen it to validate my point, of course..)
