I've posted the weekend almanac: Danish Naming Law (Part VI), F. Scott Fitzgerald, the Ninth Amendment, and more.
Also, in case you missed it earlier this week, the Bureaucracy Club of Copenhagen. Applications for membership are still being accepted.

The Almanac is up (so are the previously couple, which I forgot to mention here). Baby smiles, weather wiles, and so on.

I finally abandon all pretense of doing more than announcing the posting of Almanacs on this blog (at least for the next month or so), and I can't even live up to that promise. Anyway, for what it's worth, today's Almanac was posted about nine hours ago. Mostly just wondering aloud about the failure of the whole CBS/Rather/Memogate brouhaha to generate much media attention in Europe.
As an update, I did see an article in one of today's free dailies. It was three paragraphs in Urban under the headline "Bush: CBS must prove the papers' authenticity." ["Bush: CBS må bevise papirers ægthed"] The article deals only with the fact that President Bush said in a weekend interview that there were deep doubts about the authenticity of the documents and that CBS should further investigate them. It ends with the observation that CBS holds fast to the main thrust of its criticism of Bush—"fake but accurate" will no doubt make its Danish debut shortly...
