Oops, We Forgot Veterans Day

A reader writes to admonish us for failing to properly acknowledge Veterans Day.

Surely a notation to this effect would rate as non-partisan, even in Montclair? Surely, too, it would have been a nice shift in tone from the self-absorbed postings that fill the site.

Actually, we also forgot to mention that Yasser Arafat's death, too.

However, by our clock, it's only 11:22 pm, so we can sneak both these items in just under the wire.

We also missed this too, which while not strictly about veterans is about fighting. Thanks, Wonkette.

Oh yeah, it was a good day on the stock market, too.

By the way, just so no one gets the wrong idea, we really, really do appreciate all the veterans as well as the future veterans over in Iraq who put their lives on the line every day. We also appreciate the fact that World War I ended.

Tomorrow, we'll resume our regularly scheduled self-absorption.

Cipel Lover Not MSU Prof

The New York Daily News, which reported yesterday that a man claiming to be Golan Cipel's ex-lover was an adjunct professor at Montclair State, took it back today.

The Daily News reported yesterday that Miller was an adjunct professor at Montclair State University in New Jersey after checking with the school. College officials later said a different David Miller worked at Montclair State.

What are they going to tell us next? That he wasn't wearing purple shorts?

UPDATE: The latest? The guy's being sent for a psych eval.

Julia Child's Montclair Connection

Well, we were wrong. Julia Child, who died in her sleep Thursday night two days short of her 92nd birthday, does have a Montclair connection -- meaning that it is ok to talk about her at the Montclair Watercooler (we think.)

Born Julia McWilliams, she met Paul Cushing Child, a painter-turned-mapmaker and a native of Montclair, in Ceylon in 1943.

See How Rumors Start?

bakers_bush We'd seen this portrait of George Bush -- made up of pictures of American soldiers killed in Iraq -- floating around the web. We heard yesterday that it's the work of local artist Eric Baker, who owns a design studio in New York. But it turns out that's not true.

"I wish it was," says Baker. "Somebody sent it to me and I sent it out to a gazillion people." Baker also got a query from neighbor and New York Times media reporter David Carr, wondering if he was the man behind the image.

Baker, who knows a thing or two about art, says the Bush death image is created by a software program. "This is one of those anonymous images that flies around the world," he said.

The Barista apologizes for attributing it incorrectly to Baker first time around.
