Novel daily editorials

Songwriter Jonathan Mann of Berkeley, Calif., has come up with a unique format to express his editorial opinion. Huffington Post or some other online newspaper would be smart to hire the Rock Cookie Bottom guy to post his song-a-day exclusively at that site to drive hits.

Irony aside, listen to Saving Newspapers, The Musical (DEMO).

Click here for Mann's entire playlist. Most-viewed: Hey Paul Krugman (A song, A plea), seen more than 151,000 times.

Website find of the day

News and Verse blog's motto is "light verse, ripped from headlines."

Clever stuff. Today's entry:

NEWSWIRE--Accused investment scam artist Bernie Madoff is expected to plead guilty today and could face life in prison.

A pink slip means your laid off,
A furlough means you're day'd off
A buyout means you're paid off,
All, better off than Madoff.
