Happy Pi Day

Pi fans have their day

By ERIN McCLAM, AP National Writer

This is a story about love. About inscrutable complexity and remarkable simplicity, about the promise of forever. It is about obsession and devotion, and grand gestures and 4,000-word love letters.

TWoP sells out

The TV Column

By Lisa de Moraes, Washington Post columnist

TelevisionWithoutPity.com, the "spare the snark, spoil the networks" Web site much loved by fans of TV -- and snark -- has gone corporate.

ETA: well, it wouldn't be a Lisa de Moraes column if it didn't contain something stupid and/or wrong, would it? If TWoP was officially launched in 2002, how did I create my user account there in January 2000? Yes, I know that it was 2002 when the site changed its name from Mighty Big TV to Television Without Pity, but to say it launched then is like saying that the Altria Group was founded in 2003, when it changed its name from Philip Morris Companies Inc.
