no word this week

spent all day at an archiving workshop (my first professional development program ever! i feel all grown up) and appear to be coming down with a cold, so no doodily thingies today--although i did draw one during a break this afternoon, i'm too blobish to scan it. you'll get it next week.

to tide you over, here's titles classics would have if they were written today. there's some awesome suggestions in the comments. i think my favorite is actually a reverse retitling (mostly because i'm a sucker for the old-style paragraph-long titles as long as i don't have to figure out how they'll fit into a 245 field):
Now: Fiasco: The American Military Adventure in Iraq
Then: Towards a recounting of the late Farrago in MESOPOTAMIA by the Armed Forces of the AMERICAN Republic, including several diuersions of Interest to concerned GENTLEFOLK on the propinquity and foolhardiness of that most despis’d Clique of American Politickers that has brought that Country’s policy towards other nations close to DISASTER. (With numerous engravngs. illustrating points throu’ out.)

also, an oldie but a goodie:
