We’ve posted a lot of new site activity since the last What’s New post. Today we also completed a major version upgrade of WordPress, to all WP departments, version 2.7. This updated the “last modified” date in “At A Glance” of all the WP departments to today, December 13. What’s really new:
- A major new series in Commentary on the financial crisis. In a nutshell, we’re uncovering the identity of that “hole” in free market economic theory which Alan Greenspan announced to Congress he’d found.
- A couple of “short shorts” In Computers & Technology
- US Supreme Court Justice Robert H. Jackson announces that fundamental rights “may not be subjected to vote; they depend on the outcome of no elections” – in 1943. La Parola.
- Over a dozen new photos in Photo Notes - including many that make spectacular desktop images on your PC.
- Observations on pocket combs, Camembert cheese and the durable power of classical music, in My Notes
Lastly, our best Season’s Greetings to all of you, and thanks for your support in 2008!

Well, my goodness, we don’t usually fall behind this far in updating What’s New. For Summitlake news and new articles across all our “departments”, we do rely on “At a Glance – Last Modified” on our home index page. We hope you do too.
We have new articles this summer in Commentary, Computers, La Parola, Miscellany, and Writing Notes. I’m mining all this from “At A Glance”. The menus in those departments show all the most recent postings.
Swan is still sending his delightful photo compositions in Photo Notes. I have a few new photos there too, including a couple of Washington state’s celebrated Mt. St. Helens. Fred Leeds has posted 10 more chapters as he wraps up Mutual I, in Writing. Oddly, I haven’t posted anything in my own My Notes since June – much of what I’m writing relates to what I’m reading, so that has all been going into Writing Notes instead.
Our index page counter seems to be stuck on 1,780,738 site visits (Feb 7). There is always something new to maintain on the site. We’ll do our best to keep those articles coming too. Cheers!

Use the LINKS in the right hand margin to peruse recent additions to:
PHOTO Notes – new pictures from Swan, Dave, and myself
My Notes – living in a communications age with imperfect communication
La Parola – does anybody really know what rights are attached to a California domestic partnership?
Commentary – in memory of Rosa Parks, 1913 – 2005

The main Summitlake.com index page shows last-modified dates of 7/3/2005 on all six WordPress departments: My Notes, Commentary, Computers, La Parola, PHOTO Notes, and What’s New.
That’s only because we did version upgrades. The site maintenance uploads show today’s date, indicating that files in those directories were updated today.
So, AT A GLANCE won’t necessarily tell us which departments have new content. We have new or recent posts in My Notes, Commentary, La Parola, and PHOTO NOTES. Not to mention, this post in “What’s New”. Have a safe & sane 4th of July!

Our ever so sincere apologies for the irreverent heading! We have multiple listings to post today.
La Parola: in LP Out-Takes, we posted two new Snappy Observations on gay marriage:
March 23, 2004 – Black clergy members oppose same-sex marriage
March 21, 2004 – “How’s It Playing In Peoria?”
Humor: I’m not sure we’ve ever announced the posting of a joke in What’s New before. You’ll want to go to our Humor Index page, and in the left-hand scrolling menu select “Bricklayer’s Story”. We’re recommending you do it right now. It’s the best laugh we’ve had all year.
