I’ve had a couple of questions from readers about the reference in the previous item to the AP byline strike. Here’s the deal: Reporters from the AP, including some folks in our local Little Rock bureau, are withholding their bylines from stories during a three-day strike to….well, to pressure management to do something. I presume they’re trying to get an extra scuttle of coal for the office heater each week, and perhaps some tiny wooden crutches for their crippled and malnourished children, but I’m not entirely sure. You can read all about it here, if you must know more.

    Wiederkehr Wine Cellars has an employment opening for someone to remove the corks from Spain that arrive in rather large cardboard boxes and to place them in burlap bags for aeriation and climatic adaption prior to use on the bottling line. Yes, you’ve got it, the job title for this person that puts the corks in sacks is …

    Maybe the reporters sans bylines should apply. They seem to be more than qualified.
