Link roundup

1. Cat likes taking showers.

2. "CNN alone will have a team of roughly 400 reporters, cameramen and crew assigned to [Prince William's] wedding. The network has 50 people on the ground working on the breaking news in Japan, plus others scattered in Bahrain, Tunisia, Libya and Egypt."

3. More great stories from Jim Shooter about working for Marvel in the 60's.

  1. While 400 reporters is a little ridiculous, keep in mind that compred to assignments in Japan or tge Middle East, this assignment requires no one to learn a new a new language (with brand new alphabets and grammar) and no one risks life and limb being beaten by government supporters, government protesters, getting irradiated, or risking the occasional beheading. I can see how there may be a few more volunteers than usual.

    That, and I'm sure the entire CNN home office (probably already hundreds of people) are reporting anyway.
