Like many personal blogs of its era, this blog is moribund, a casualty of what we might call "the Facebook effect." However, as of late 2015, two things are clear: (1) The Indie Web is a thing, and (2) the re-decentralization of the web is a thing. So who knows? 2016 2017 (!) could be the year this blog rises from its own ashes. Stay tuned!

USA Today reports:
A teacher at a Newton County school has resigned after officials say she admitted she told two students to throw a 14-year-old girl from a classroom window… . two boys later told principal Kenneth Daniels that they threw the girl out the window because they did not want to be written up for disobeying a teacher.

I've always been intrigued about defenestration since first hearing about the Defenestration of Prague in school. I like that this article mentions that the Czechs joked (or did they?) about tossing their former leaders out of windows after the fall of Communism.

My friend, Brendan, has a website devoted to Jones Soda labels. Anyway, one of the ones he got printed on a bottle showed the Defenestration Building South of Market:
