I hope the backlash against Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback for his outrageous and constitutionally-questionable response to a negative tweet sent by a high school student does not have a negative impact on public support for elected officials’ offices monitoring Twitter and other social media. It’s an important component to keeping in touch with constituents and is a Good Thing. (It also requires thicker skin than Brownback apparently has.)
Glad I’m not the only one who is troubled by the incorrect usage of the word “peak” as it relates to the phrase “sneak peek.”
The first-gen iPod nano I’m currently listening to is part of a voluntary recall for battery issues. Five years later. This is the first Apple product I ever bought (got it as an open item at Best Buy, two days after the second generation Nano was released) so I have seriously mixed emotions about sending it back. That, and there are elements of the playlist that have remained untouched since college. There’s a strange purity in that, no?
