Yeah, I'd pay for that

Brenda Novak’s 2008 Online Auction to Benefit Diabetes Research starts tomorrow and there about a gazillion things I’d like to buy—starting with the autographed Ali photo.

One thing that really caught my eye—some of the editorial evaluations have a promised response time, ranging from 24 hours to 2 weeks.

Letters to the Idols: Neil Diamond Week

Neil Diamond? Oh, come on! What’s next? Julia Ward Howe week?
