bullets of the year

  • after forming a committee a couple weeks back to explore the possibility of running for president, senator evan bayh apparently decided he can't compete, and thus announced that he won't run, saying "I have always prided myself on putting my public responsibilities ahead of my own ambitions."
  • judith regan, publisher of harpercollins' regan books, has been fired. someone had to be punished after all the bad press generated by the now-cancelled murder memoir by oj simpson. regan made her boss rupert murdoch look bad, so she had to go. the imprint that carries her name will continue without her.
  • as someone who produces my own audio, video, and photos on the web, part of me is touched that time magazine has declared that you (yes, you, and me, but especially you) as this year's person of the year. but another part of me thinks it's a total copout.
