THE 7-YEAR-ITCH MIX: WINTER 2008

Oh, but what would one do without the ubiquitous existence of Wikipedia? Such a fortuitous fount of information -- be it accurate or the exact antithesis of said such.  (I mean, these days, who really gives a crap about accuracy?)

So... just for some fun... why don't we take a passing glance at some notable folks named "Winter" or "Winters" before I bestow the best of my BEST OF OCTOBER, NOVEMBER, and DECEMBER 2008 mixes upon you...

There. Now don't we all feel just a little bit brighter after all that exquisite ephemera? Thank you, Wikipedia. (Now, Wikipedia... please be so kind as to amend my page post-haste on your otherwise sacrosanct site, as, to my knowledge, "A Plague of Angels" is NOT, in fact, meant to be the next installment in the "Da Vinci Code" concatenation.)

Finally, here is that promised distillation of my dearest ditties from the winter of 2008...
