Something to do while Wikipedia is down

Go and vote on the final Calling Caldecott ballot. Ruthless elimination has already occurred; there are now just five choices for your three votes. Chills!

I’ll be in Dallas for ALA tomorrow through Monday, serving on the Batchelder Award committee and schmoozing with our advertisers, who, it is interesting, are among the supporters of the deservedly maligned SOPA Act proposal that prompted Wikipedia and others to protest. I’ll have to remember to ask if that Dead End in Norvelt cover I plucked from cyberspace to put here yesterday is going to get us in trouble. More chills!
