How about those 60-degree temps? Great morning for a walk. Some odds and ends:

* Wonderful feature in NY Times on Little Rock photographer Dave Anderson's book on the rebuilding of a block in New Orleans' hurricane-stricken Ninth Ward.

* More disdain in NY Times editorial for Sen. Blanche Lincoln's farm disaster relief bill, a windfall for rice farmers.

* A WORD FROM OUR SPONSORS: Yes, this is a commercial message. If you haven't checked out this Half-Off Depot deal on our website you are missing some bodacious bargain. It's real simple, you plunk down $15 or $25 or so for a gift certificate from one of the participating advertisers and you can buy twice as much stuff. Some new people have joined the list. $25 gets you $50 worth of eats at the Red Door; $25 buys you $50 worth of chow at Loca Luna; $12.50 buys $25 of fine cooking at 1620; $25 for $50 worth of Trio's food (how many Peter Pan pies is that?). Check it out. Some deals are instantly printable. You don't even have to wait for the mail. Lots more places on there for half-price deals: Capi's, Juanita's, Cheeburger Cheeburger, Catlfish City, Hampton Inn, Stone Links Golf Course
