Tuesday Deadline Linkdump: the 'what I missed' edition

Jousting_peepsI was blissfully unaware of the goings on in the Vermont blogosphere last week, but now I'm catching up. Here's a little summary:

Jousting peeps! Photo from Sarah at the 8th Nerve.
• Closed for Easter? Jessamyn vents about the hours at her local pool.
New comic! But she says she won't be updating again until May.
• Dan York gave a presentation at the Homeland Defense Journal conference. What th'?
Bosox Blotter is once again following the Sox.
• Katherine of Cut to the Chase was inspired to write poetry about the whole Bush leaking thing.
• Ah, the joy of neighborhood meetings.
• Meredith the librarian dissects Wikimania.
• A tirade about unhelpful retail clerks.
• Activist William Sloane Coffin died. From Green Mountain Daily.

I have a bunch of updates for my Vermont blogroll, which I should be getting to this week. Stay tuned!

Oo! GMD got bumped down the list from this morning. Is it my breath? Do I offend? (snif)

Jeez, you must have checked it immediately after I posted it. When I put it up, I realized I had left off the peeps picture, so I added that and bumped William Sloane Coffin to the end because I thought it was disrespectful to put him up by the peeps. The first version was probably up for about 2 minutes, tops. I figured nobody would notice...

Guess I was wrong.

I thought that Odum's post on William Slone Coffin was great.

His passing really didn't get as much ink (as many pixels?) as it should have -- and Odum posted a really fantastic story about Mr. Coffin's impact on one person's life. Really great stuff.

Thanks for the kudos, but of course it aint my story (or writing) it was Bob's. Absolutely hands down the most moving eulogy I've read.

...and I agree -- I was really shocked by the lack of print on his passing, but at the same time I was pleasantly surprised by how much coverage/appreciation of his life there was in the blogosphere! That was really encouraging. So much for the idea that the blogs are all populated by a bunch of "know-nothing" teenagers and twentysomethings.
