Hot Off the Presses


Have you seen His Girl Friday? It’s delicious, isn’t it? Some of you might not have the appetite for a black and white flicker pictures (that’s what Olds like me called ‘em back in the day), but trust me when I tell you that this movie has everything you could ask for to tickle your tastebuds, cinematically speaking. Cary Grant and Rosalind Russell’s chemistry crackles, Ms. Rosalind’s costumes will give you first degree burns born from the raging fires of pure sartorial envy (bring the aloe), the Hawskian rat-a-tat banter is first rate, and somebody please fetch me a lifesaver, because if these accents were more Midatlantic, I’d drown in the ocean! Oh, and most importantly, it’s about NEWS, and isn’t that the name of this game? So in the spirit of the above still of Cary Grant and Rosalind Russell breaking a story in His Girl Friday, here’s this week’s late-breaking news:

  • It seems only fitting that in the windup to St. Patrick’s Day weekend, the Irish Hunger Memorial would get some love, so here’s a piece about our renovation in Prism. Incidentally, it turns out Prism is a publication about sustainability and built environments and not a weblog devoted to my favorite Katy Perry album. #themoreyouknow
  • And speaking of things that shine bright like a diamond, here’s a piece from Landscape + Urbanism that you’re guaranteed to like so much you will put a ring on it. I normally don’t mix my popstar metaphors so egregiously, but then again, I don’t usually write to my TGIF Spotify playlist either, so I guess today is all about breaking the news and breaking the rules!

Well, that’s all for this week’s news that Cary Grant and Rosalind Russell and the fine folks of the internet have broken. CTA news: news that proves that if it is broken, CTA can fix it!
