Hits and misses

*Just when I thought we were catching up on the digital front - videos, social networks, etc. - along comes something called Chatroulette. Haven't heard of it? Same here, until it was on the front page of The New York Times Sunday Week in Review. The New York Times! Read all about it here before you give it a try.

*We have this on-going discussion at the paper about weather forecasting. Several big storms have been predicted this winter, only to fizzle out. It's enough to drive us (and readers) nuts. Another big storm is in today's forecast, and it's properly heralded and frequently updated on the front page of our Website. The thing is, the news story source is the National Weather Service. Another prediction elsewhere on the site (AccuWeather) calls for less snow (as does the Weather Channel). Which will be correct this time? Check back in 24 hours when we could have as much as a foot of wet snow on the ground ... or not.

*There was an Internet item floating around last week saying singer Gordon Lightfoot had died. Turned out to be false. What a relief: WKNY's playlist would have taken a big hit. The Kingston station seems to be the only place you can hear the likes of Gordon Lightfoot, Seals and Crofts and Hall and Oates. I'm not saying that's a good thing.
