The bad news is that the SF Chronicle has put Jon Carroll behind a paywall.
The good news is that I've figured out how to get around it. (A privilege I exercise very sparingly, I assure you, and if they'd institute a per-article reading fee, and if it were something reasonable, like under $1, instead of the $3.95 you typically see, I wouldn't even do that.)
The bad news is that he's off for the week and didn't do a Christmas quiz this year anyway.
So no day-after commentary on it from me.
This has been the not-a-post for the day. Thank you.
