The Cody News (November 16, 2005)

Here's a blast from the past -- a little R&R for you today. Let me know via email or comments section if I should start doing these news snapshots and commentary again:

Washington Post's Woodward Apologizes for Lapse on Leak New York Times - 1 hour ago Bob Woodward, assistant managing editor of The Washington Post, today apologized to his newspaper's executive editor for waiting two years to tell him that a senior Bush administration official had told him about the CIA operative Valerie Wilson. ...
I'll just re-iterate my point that today's bloggers are yesterday's Bob Woodward. But, man, is it going to get messy as we define "journalist" during this dot-revolution (oh, did I mention I've applied for a trademark on that name -- dot revolution? I did.)

US Retains Internet Control Red Herring - 7 hours ago The fight was over before the opening bell as delegates at the WSIS summit throw in the towel on Internet politics. The much-anticipated battle for control of the Internet was over before pre-fight introductions. ...
I'm glad that we're not shifting control of this stuff to another, bigger, more diversified and conflicted bureaucracy. That said, I'm surprised at how quickly this resolved. Maybe all the bureaucrats involved just wanted an excuse to vacation in Athens next year.

Oil: Slow demand weighs in New Zealand Herald - 4 hours ago Oil prices steadied below US$58 a barrel on Tuesday as dealers eyed soft early-season demand for heating oil and awaited government data expected to show swelling US stockpiles. Limiting losses, Opec-member ...
But, but, ,but....I thought demand was way outpacing supply! That's what all the oil bulls have projected into eternity, after all.

Country Music's Best Honored During New York Awards Ceremony Voice of America - 2 hours ago By Mary Morningstar. The 39th annual Country Music Association (CMA) Awards were presented November 15 in New York City. It was the first time the event took place outside of Nashville, Tennessee, and also ...
Not really anything of value to add here, but last night I was at a dinner and a lady in charge of music talent at one of the satellite radio companies, and she was very funny: She explained how she was supposed to be at the awards and when people would text message her asking where she was, she would text them back, "I'm here, wandering around with several artists." She left the dinner an hour later in order to "make that statment a little more true".

Penguins march toward Oscar glory BBC News - 10 hours agoHit French documentary The March of the Penguins is among the 15 films shortlisted for Oscar consideration for the 2006 Academy Awards. The selected documentaries were chosen by the academy's documentary branch ...
Every time I see that title, I'm reminded of a comment from music analyst Bob Lefsetz that went something like this: "But after all this documentary about how these penguins mate --- we never learned how they actually have sex!"
