Sorry. I haven’t been doing much exploring of my own lately, although I have completed a very nice paper on the validity of paid placement search engine results and also an annotated bibliography on historical document digitization projects in the past few weeks, just in case anyone cares. But I’m planning on getting away this weekend, so there’s no telling what I might come back with (or where I might go).

The photo above shows the remains of an A&P on Mt. Prospect Avenue in Newark. It’s still selling groceries probably seventy years after A&P moved in, so the location was obviously pretty good. The sign was evidently of pretty high quality as well.
