Kick Cameron to the Kerb [Friday 4 Mar 2011 at 12:29 am]

Okay, they just cut my BBC broadcast back to weekly from daily. Is this because you brits couldn't keep your government in the people's hands?

BBC Mundo in Spanish was a great review filled with worldwide accents from reporters in half a dozen countries and lots of news about Spain and Latin America. Now it's available for download only a fifth as often.

I contribute to my local public radio station that puts up free mp3s of the programs for anyone around the world interested. You folks in the North Sea should keep making the programs I like, too.

Chris Nolan's The Prestige is awesome. It's deeper and trickier than Inception, but less flashy. Well, it's still flashy but nothing is as flashy as Inception.

Finally the weather is on the upswing. Spring is so much better than winter.

Hey, I saw your comment on that Atlantic article and I wanted to thank you for giving me a new perspective on university admissions. I had never seen the numbers broken down like that.

It puts things in context, doesn't it? I always thought it seemed like my friends from overseas faced a very different gamut of challenges getting into university but only now can I quantify it.
